To be fair (and perhaps a bit bold as an FNG) I would like to know why some of you guys decided on a softail over a dyna. I've posted a related thread on the dyna forum and have received some good feedback. Basically it's down to the low rider or the duece for me, and this is my first HD. So far the dyna has the edge from what I would consider a practicality standpoint, but who the hell needs to be practical? (I've got a BMW for that). I really like the looks of the duece, especially the 200 on the rear. How do the soft tails handle by comparison? Does the riding position get to you after a few hours in the saddle? How bout the stopping characteristice (I plan on putting a dual disc up front). Thank you all in advance. Estimated purchase time is summer 06.
