I have been trolling these boards for about a year now gathering information on the Boss Hoss. After riding for thirty years, and the last three on a Valkyrie, I went to the Boss Hoss factory in Dyersburg, TN., and gratefully accepted a demo ride on an 04 fuel injected 350. This was a big mistake as I immediately came home and sold my Valkyrie. I intend to purchase a used Boss in the near future and need some experienced information. There seems to be some rather nice low mileage clutch bikes available at decent prices, and single speed autos also, neither of which has reverse. Is this a major problem not having the reverse as I normally park in a manner where I don't use reverse ? Do the older bikes handle as well as the new ones, or is there a particular year to stay away from? Does the clutch bike clutch feel and release as a normal motorcycle clutch does? I have heard the clutch is harder and kind of awkward to use. The only reason for considering a clutch bike would be possible less problems than automatic and also the price. I am hoping to purchase a auto bike with reverse in around a 2000 to 2001 model, but seeing some good prices on older bikes makes me wonder. Any comments or suggestions on the clutch or single speed auto bikes would be considered and greatly appreciated. As I said I hope to purchase an auto with reverse, but would not turn down a deal on a older one if I don't hear of any negative reports on them.
