I bought a 2014 Road King and love it. Had considered a Street Glide but chose the RK because of its open cockpit and classic styling.

I travel with an Eagle Mike Quick Jack. It's compact and works well. A less expensive (yet very effective) alternative can be made quite easily from the bottom section of an aluminum crutch.

I put the Happy Trails SL racks and Mojave bags on my 2012 KLR. I prefer them much better than the HT Teton aluminum cans I had on a Versys. FWIW, 11,000 and no leaks.
