If I had it to do all over again, I would (with 20 large) probably pick up a BMW GS all decked out - The Grand Canyon edition I think it is - Or maybe even the Pikes Peak Multistrada - But, if you are dead set on HD, prob the Road King

Frame Fairing (1)
Handlebar Fairing (2)
Tombstone fairing
No fairing


Bags
No bags

Trunk
No trunk

Radio ( requires fairing 1 or 2 )

That pretty much covers it.

If I did it again, Id go Streetglide. Basically an Electraglide like T had but cooler. Chey had one though so with your small hands you should be fine.

I had a Road King Custom and while Im not a fan of the Batwing fairing on the Electra/StreetGlide, it works and houses a radio.

i guess i gotta go into a stealer and check em out.

another thing too why i say new is mainly a year old or 2 bike with low miles is the same cost is new inst it?

if i want someone elses beaten down goods, its gotta be for a kick ass price.

More proof that all CLSB members are filthy rich "20K sitting cash". Except me LOL.
Seriously how about the new Ducati Multi, that damn thing is a tourer, adventure bike and sportbike......at least that is what they claim. Love it or hate it looks though. Personally like the look but I am too damn short to get flat footed, lol.

Im not current of HD pricing but everyone adds at least 2 grand in accessories before they drive their new bike away. That may be why you see comparable new to old pricing.

You just described the street glide. Which is also my next bike when I can afford one again.

Anyone need an air conditioner? :-)

PM sent!

If you like a lot of chrome I would go the Ultra. If not then SG.

Look at both and see what look you'd rather have.
