I agree.I notice in your post you say you might go with a scooter or a trike as well. Those are a far cry from an EG. I've ridden FXR's for the last 23 years and bought an '05 Road Glide three years ago just because I had to try it. Once it got rolling it was great but at parking lot speeds, especially with the wife on the back, it was just too heavy to feel comfortable. And it was not fun to move it around in the garage. I've since sold the RG and the FXR and got me a '00 Super Glide Sport with a detatchable windshield and bags, and it's a good choice for me. Overall just more fun to ride than the big bagger. Good luck in what you decide.
