My Road King was a '99. It was Aztec Orange over Diamond Ice two-tone, carb, and had the spoke wheels.
Owned it for five years and about 30,000 miles with zero issues.
Very comfortable, and very easily customized. With the '09 and up frame and ABS, they are great bikes.
My current Harley is a 2012 Ultra, with ABS and security package, and the aluminum wheels. The wheels look good and so far, have proven easy to clean.
Rode yesterday and had the opportunity to lay on the brakes hard in the wilds of Phoenix traffic; with ABS it was a quick stop that left me with great confidence.
The new 103's seem to have a lot more power than the 88's...not surprisingly.
