the Breakout is long, low and rearing to go

Drag-bars, low seat and forward controls means you sit 'in' the bike

clear, un-obstructed view makes the Breakout kool

the Breakout turns heads wherever it goes,

even had guys dropping out of the sky to take a butchers

standard twin mufflers keep noise low (to low for my liking)

the Harley Breakout parked over the Klip River

looks just as good from either side... KOOL!

plush, low and wide rider's seat is firm, yet comfortable,

the pillion seat is only for short trips (me thinks)

rear, twin-pot brakes are neat and more than adequate

front, single, floating disc brake worked very well

chopped fender allows a view of the 240mm tyre
