I really like mine so far....I put 5k on it since june. Its an 08X. I always wanted one and when we went to trade my wife's harley on a new one and I saw the used Uly was sitting there.....well she got her harley and I rode my uly home. My Ultra has basically sat in the garage all summer. I am planning an Alaska ride next summer but just do not feel confident enough in the Uly to take it as I could be in trouble on that long open trip.
I will continue to ride the Uly 50 miles daily back and forth to work but the Ultra is more than likely making the Alaska trip. I lived in Alaska for 8 yrs and have a firm grip on making good decisions as poor ones can cost you
