I'm pretty sure with all the accessories available for Harleys that you could set it up any way you like. I have Harley's Sundowner seat on my Nightrod Special and it's the best seat I've ever had on a bike.I test rode one of these and thought it was probably the best handling Harley I'd ridden. They can be set up with mid controls also, if that's your preference, as they were originally offered with either mid or forward controls.

Good point...My main concern is the fatigue from the wind over about an 8-10 hour riding day. I did see that Memphis Shades sells a quick detach Batwing for it. That plus some detachable lowers and Harley's hard bags might do it?

Almost bought a Ducati Monster (2009 696 black w/650mi on it) yesterday, on my birthday. I resisted. Why? It wasn't red, and it was a 696. If it was Red, OR was a 1100, I would've gotten it.

I want a red 796 or 1100 Monster. Always have. Might make it happen this year.

OR a trials bike. That would be cool too.

I just bought a spanking new Griso. It is a very nice bike. I'll post some pics of it when I get the boat anchor exhaust replaced.
