Great article, very well written. WRN has been very helpful to my girlfriend who went from having no miles on any motorcycle in March, to taking the Harley-Davidson Riding Academy, to riding 1,500 miles on a Honda Shadow Aero, and now having 200 miles on her new (to her) 2012 Switchback. I think WRN is a fabulous source, not only for women, but for us guys too, and I have over 500,000 miles on bikes, so kudos to WRN.

Thank you for a very well written review of the Switchback! The information on the optional seat was most helpful as I may want to be an inch lower. I have owned a Sportster, Honda VTX1300, Yamaha V Star 1300 and prefer a midweight bike and your article is very helpful.

I'm a shorter guy (5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches, depending on which convenience store I'm walking out of) and went with a Harley-Davidson Dyna Switchback. I usually leave the bags off since I like the look better without them, but it's great to be able to snap them back on right away if needed.

I find it interesting that this is mostly targeted towards smaller riders. I am actually considering the Switchback because I am a tall rider at 6 feet 4 inches with a size 14 boot -- and the Dyna chassis seems to fit me best. I currently have a Dyna Fat Bob but after numerous long trips had my heart set on a Street Glide for the fairing wind protection and extra storage. The factory floorboards on the Street Glide, Road King, and Ultra make it almost impossible for me to curl my foot back to push on the brake and at normal sitting positions with feet flat on the floorboards I get charlie horses in my legs just sitting on them in the showroom.

I found an aftermarket forward control option with engineering dimensions and went to the dealer with a tape measure to figure out placement. It put my toes almost against the engine guard and totally impossible on an Ultra with the lower fairings. Leading me to be concerned with my toes so close to the engine guard if in an emergency maneuver and needing to move my feet quickly. From what I have seen, it appears that the Switchback floorboards use the same mounting as the factory forward pegs on the Fat Bob or Wide Glide which are a good fit for me from the start without alterations. I even tried a tallboy seat on the Street Glide with very little difference.

I have found aftermarket fairings for the Switchback and other Dyna models that would assist with wind protection and there are various tour packs and luggage bag options available as well. I am also considering taking the base model Dyna and adding to it. Whether it be a Switchback or other Dyna, for the price one can add many options to get to the base Street Glide price which for me would require more dollars on top of that to try and get it to fit me and jazz it up a bit. The Dynas just seem the way to go.
