Well, I went to the dealer today and sat on some of the Big boys. I just got the Sporty and already I wished I had gone bigger. I know, I know but I didn't know of the forum before I bought and I certainly didn't realize that the Sporty would be so painfull to drive on the hiway.

Any way, if I can get the financing I'm going for it. Live and learn I guess.

I sat on the Dynas and Soft tails. I still need to sat on the RK's. I really liked the Duece. It felt really good. I'm just not sure if it would be decent to take on some long cruise that I would like to take. Very sexy though! I just don't want to make another mistake. I could see riding comfortable RK too. I'm sure 2 up riding would be better. But the Duece just made me say, WOW!.

In another post someone said...The bike chooses the rider. It's a tough decision because there are a lot of choices.

I am still struggling between a Road King and a Heritage Classic.

Sounds like you're in the same boat as me.

Are you struggling with the cruising comfort of the RK opposed to getting the sexy Soft tail that you really want?

I strongly suggest you take the time to go to a demo ride site. Take a ride on each. I really think the bike " will choose you." I agree with you about the Sportster, it's a curb stopper, not for a long journey. I would have to think long and hard about spending 20+k on a RoadKing if I really was into Touring, IMHO the Goldwing remains the premier touring bike. The Softail is a nice in betweener, but is it the best bike for either touring or curb stops, probably not. Maybe try a wide glide, I've been able to ride that bike a bit, and found it to be a good betweener.

You really have to ask yourself what kind of riding you will be doing the most. If getting out on the road and covering a lot of ground is your thing, go for the RK or the Electra Glide. If cruising around town most of the time, the Duece would fit right in that slot nicely. I met a couple at a local poker run a few months back that had made the same mistake and purchased a Sporty before doing their homework. They were riding two up and already wishing they had bought a larger bike. Consider your two up partner in the decision process. If they are not comfortable you will be doing a lot of riding alone.
