Not a Harley owner - but I have ridden all the latest models = except the VRod and StreetRod, coz our HD dealer is across the street from the BMW dealer, so when I took my R1100S in I hopped across the road to take a Harley for a spin....

And to be honest? The best bike, for my mind, is the base model poverty pack XL883.....

Of course, brakes arent the best, and neither is the power, but I got the same if better feel from it (new rubber mounted model) than I did riding any Dyna or Softail....the XL1200 was even better!!!!

I'd like to go to the 'States, buy one of these, keep it stock, chuck some saddlebags and a rear rack on with a duffelbag and tour across America with it.....of course there only $US6500 over there...close to $AU13,000 here!!!
