For those long of limb, the Road Glide is the bike to look at. I've owned a Road King, Wide Glide, Superglide, and now the Road Glide and the comfort and handling blow the others away. IT is a mile sucking machine. I've got a MadStad shield on mine and it has less turbulence than the stock one, but stock is not too bad either. You can get different seat heights if you legs feel cramped. My other bike is a Tiger 800XC I use for back roads blasting. The Road Glide is what I take when I want to do 600-700 mile days. Stay away from the Road Glide custom unless you want to lose an inch of their already limited suspension travel. I have a Mustang seat on mine with a removable pillion, and removable adjustable backrest. That was the single biggest comfort adder that lets you pile on the miles.
Before the new shield....
