Dad has one, an Ultra-classic though (it is the HD goldwing crowd, kind of different than the chopper/apehanger crowd inside the HD ranks I guess). I like it, and Rides nicer but weighs about double what the old gold-wing did, I feel, so like the old Cadillacs, rides nice. I'd like one but they are friggin expensive.
I rented an Electra-Glide Classic more than a few years ago, when I was attending a two-week Johnson Controls school in Milwaukee. Spent the lay-over weekend tooling around the fair Dairy State. The one I rented predated the chassis upgrade in 2009. Handled like a garden gate. I'd like to try one with the new chassis--I hear the front and rear wheels are now in the same plane!
