No contest IMHO the EG is the way to go for touring. I owned an EG standard back in 2003. Added a detachable top case and it worked great for long hauls. The road king can work with a windshield I guess as well but still does not have the amenities of the glides. I personally never cared for the road kings especially with a windshield attached. They are heavy under powered pigs IMHO. I've ridden nearly all HD's and the performance of the glide is superior. Back in 03 the EG standard was the most bang for the buck you could get. Not up on HD now so it sounds like they replaced the standard with the street glide by reading the posts. I had a Dyna Standard for while too and that was also much better handling HD then the soft tails......go for a test ride, decide for yourself is my advice.
