yes they all shake. the older ones were solid mounted and would shake the rider and bike to pieces. the newer ones are rubber mounted and take a bit longer to shake the rider and bike to pieces. they are fun though.

However, this is primarily a Harley thing, not the case for all street bikes. The Jap bikes are much smoother and more powerful generally speaking.

The Harleys are about the worst vibrating of all the bikes.  They've stuck with very old tech that uses a shared crank journal and produces a very out of balance firing order on a v twin.  It gives them their unique sound and keeps Locktite in business.

As a matter of fact, my whole town is shaking
apart.....LOL  About 10,000 or more bikes are
rolling in for Erie's "Roar on the Shore".  Lasts
about 5 days, and pumps some major dollars
into the area.
