interesting, thanks. I'd never heard of it before.. That said, that price is all sorts of ridiculous, but value is in the eye of the beholder..

PVW 18?
This.
Case in point. Less than $12K and basically the same weight as those Ducs you mentioned. I rode this model for years and loved it. I didn't take it on highways, because the ride was so stiff and of course, the wind was horrid, but it was the perfect bike for trips within the city. So much so that I will probably buy one for my wife that I can "borrow" from time to time..
Sportsters are neither huge, nor heavy, nor expensive. I know that's not what you meant, but Sportsters are the perfect urban motorcycle..
If it were me I'd go to a 28. If they are too small, which I doubt, you can always exchange. I size down 2 and works every time..
Johnson Leather in San Francisco did some amazing work on my RRL Elkhorn, taking it from a L to effectively between a S and M. They also do custom work. Have you tried them already?
FWIW, my wife blew out one of the knees in a pair of RRL denim the day she got them (she knelt down to pick something up and bam, knee split from seam to seam). We sent those off to be repaired and the day she got them back, the other knee went in a similar fashion! Now I know it was not a sizing issue (my wife is 5'7" and about 101 pounds) but seriously, I guess the moral of the story is don't actually live in some of the women's cuts.. That said, having been repaired,...
Yeah, my wife loved a lot of the RRL when it steered more towards feminized versions of the classic men's workwear, but just couldn't get into the frilly shirts, rodeo skirts and prairie dresses enough to actually buy them. She did manage to get some really great denim, a leather jacket, and several of the more classic western shirts before they shut the line down..
