Someone ought to tell those guys that you cannot do trips like this on a bike like that
The issue was gravel roads, and I'm not convinced an Electra Glide (since you're using it as an argument) is a worse gravel-road bike. Really.

I'd have to really ride the two, or ask someone else to, but the Wee for its height mixed with its suspension may make it worse, or at least a more dangerous ride, for all I know.
