    The rear-break caliper seems to be in same problematic position again, many HD owners complain how the breaks get hot because of the exhaust after long drive and give up.

    Planning to buy this bike. But some how I have doubt about heating and paint issues of the spare parts.

    Since I am a tall person 6.2 feet, does it will suit me while riding this bike?

    I don't own the bike buddy. I read it somewhere. Regarding your height-seating query, I guess Shubhabhrata from overdrive is also of your height. I guess he was pretty comfortable while testing the bike.
