If for the same price (assuming what I'm willing to pay will give me a choice), an H-D, Goldwing, or Victory Vision are the real options, the Victory would be my first choice but the wife is not as thrilled, the Goldwing next which the wife liked the feel of, and the H-D which didn't fit the wife as well. Off the shelf, the Goldwing fits the bill without modification.

For that kind of money, I should be happy without making adjustments. Now adding farkles is a whole different matter, but the base machine should be satisfactory from the get go. Granted passenger foot boards are not a big deal and may be a good solution. Then it would come down to price and options as delivered.

And I'm back to the Shadow RS again.
The more seat time I get, the more I think Honda has made a better Sportster than Harley, and a better Bonneville than Triumph.
