Review: 2010 Harley Davidson FXCWC Softail Rocker C

Updated on September 7, 2013

2010 Harley Davidson - Softail Rocker C

Since I have done some reviews of the lineup Harley Davidson is offering for the 2010 year I decided to ask some Harley enthusiast what model would be their ideal dream. Most know that I like many motorcycles and do not limit myself to just one manufacturer. Having been around motorcycles most of my 49 years I have had the privilege of being introduced to many. Having friends that have worked in the motorcycle industry, started their own companies and my dad being one of the original owners of Progressive Suspension I have been surrounded by a vast amount of influence. Why I never ended up working in this industry is beyond me. As you can see I have been immersed into the motorcycle culture for many years. Then top it off with having raced in the desert for 18 years I think I have learned a few things. When I write I tend to write about Harley's since they are all some will talk about. In some ways I feel for them since they can’t seem to pull away from Harley ownership. But there are those that like trucks and all they ever buy is the same make every time they purchase a new one. Go figure. There is a heck of a lot more different motorcycles out there than there are trucks. To get back to the point of this hub the Harley that a few of my guy friends talked about was the Rocker C and the Softail Deuce. Since I do not know much about the Rocker C I set out to find out what the deal was with this particular Harley Davidson that so intrigued my fellow riders.


Softail Rocker C

When I first saw the bike I could tell why it appealed to some of the guys I ride with. It wasn’t my flavor of bike but still was striking to look at. The rear suspension area is reminiscent of a vintage hardtail frame with a wide tire on the back. The solo seat gives it a look that flows nicely with this bike and has a pillion seat for a passenger. Though this seat would not be comfortable for very long and your passenger would be complaining within minutes. That is why I always tell women learn to ride so you are not stuck on the back. Not all guys are going to go out and buy a comfy bike just for you to be comfortable. I wouldn’t even do that. If there is no room for you, go get your own motorcycle or stay home. The front end on this bike is raked out to give it that chopper look. This motorcycle is eyecatching and leaves a lasting impression as it heads down the road.
