2008 Harley-Davidson F-150 - Hog-Tied
We kick-start the new supercharged '08 Harley-Davidson F-150.
For me, this vehicle's steering and handling were different from anything I'd driven in the past six months, but that's probably due to the fact that I was in a truck, not a Mustang. For what it was, the handling was great.
The bed extender definitely helped when we had to bring parts and pieces to the storage area, and the truck got loads of looks from many people, one of whom was on a H-D motorcycle (see photos).
So how much does this bad boy cost? The base sticker is $36,500, and with all of the options this truck is equipped with--including the blower, which is priced at a stout $6,575--the total MSRP comes to $50,110. For the price of the truck and what you get with it, you definitely get your bang for the buck. If it was up to me, though, I'd get the same truck loaded the way it was, sans the blower, and slap on a huffer with a bit more to it. Evidently, my genes scream, "Forget about gas mileage and the rear tires."
To sum it all up, I have to quote my wonderful wife, who, when I brought the truck home one night, asked, "Can we keep it?"
Special thanks to Mike Young, who graciously allowed us to photograph the new '08 Harley-Davidson F-150 with his motorcycle, a loud and stylish '99 FXSTC, better known as a Softail Custom.
