I can see that a lot of folks here aren't really fans of the Harley.
Funny things about me, I'm not about what makes everyone else happy. I have owned over 30 different sport bike's over the past 10 years. From the FZR 400 trackbike, 3 CBR 900rr's, 3 Hayabusa's, 3 R1's (01, 04 and 10) along with a host of other 250, 600, 650, 750 and 1000 cc bike's. I still plan to keep sportbike, by selling my SV650 trackbike, and picking up a R6 to use for street and track. I decided I want a cruiser a few months back, when I spent a few days rolling around on a 09 Fat Boy. It was nice taking the wife riding with me, and her being comfortable.... she's not a little girl... even my daughter isn't crazy about riding on the back of the R1, though she loved the Busa.
I like the style and look, as well as the feel of the Street Glide. I have been a speed freak all of my life, but was perfectly comfortable on that 96" Fat Boy, just cruising. I rode my R1 this past Tuesday, and love it... but the Street Glide was more so on my mind. I'm selling the 250r, and the SV650 to pick up, hopefully, a 06 R6. Which will get some suspension work, and spare set of bodywork that is full race wear
. That will be my run with through the twisties bike
But thank you all for your feedback. Even though most are against it, I will be either selling, or trading in the R1 soon to get myself a Street glide
