Bought an 02 flstc bout a year ago. went through the same decision process. RK or Heritage. I opted for the Heritage (carb). seat height is a little lower(I'm 5'6") and passengers sit up higher. when my wife rides with me she looks over my head instead of at the back of it. If the majority of my riding was traveling (8 or 9 hour days every day) I would skip the RK and Heritage and opt for the Roadglide.This will be my next bike. But I'm keep'n my 00 fxd and 02 heritage 4 ever. which ever one you buy CHANGE THE FRIGGEN SEAT!
