Thanks for the reply.
I know the odds of me doing a long haul ride are slim and/or infrequent. I want a comfy ride to work which will take about 40 minutes on the route I plan to use (low traffic as possible). I also figure I'm only going to have one shot at buying a bike again, I'll keep it 20 years, so I really want the right bike. I was a superbike/crotchrocket guy as a youngster but seem drawn to baggers now (old man coming out in me.) I don't want a bike that handles like a land whale in light urban driving but I do want a bike with a little storage capacity. I also don't want leather saddlebags as I'm a lazy fuck and don't want to worry about the leather.
That dark red Street Glide Harley has on it's front page right now really does it for me. I can't seem to right click and save the pic.
Yeah, that is a nice bike for a bagger! Given what you say above, it sounds to me like the Street Glide is likely the way to go. Ride one and let me know what you think!
