Harley’s dual-button turn signal controls are also awkward, especially in heavy gloves. Try to brake, downshift and signal while winding through unfamiliar rain-slickened streets at night, and you will quickly appreciate the simplicity of the other bikes’ single push-to-cancel signal switches. Both the Harley and Yamaha self-cancel their turn signals, which some riders like and some don’t. Riders unanimously rated the Harley’s handlebar controls below the other two bikes’. Its horn was also the weakest, with Honda’s barely adequate honkers rated best. You get a good view of the road ahead with all three headlights, and we appreciated the Road King’s spotlights, which illuminate only on high beam. Harley’s ignition switch location atop the fuel tank was our favorite of the three, and permits you to remove the key while riding. The Yamaha’s ignition lock location-under the left forward corner of the tank, was the most awkward but an improvement on the position used on the other Stars. Harley’s fork lock, located atop the triple clamp, was also preferred, with the Yamaha’s fork lock—located on the left side of the steering head, which requires you to turn the wheel right and perhaps unbalance the bike on sloping ground—least liked.
