The ride on the Uly is fantastic. As I've mentioned before, I traded my Road King for it immediately after a test ride. Have done 900 mile days without discomfort. Handles mountain twisties like a sport bike, even loaded up like a pack mule. It's OK off road, but it's no KTM or Dakar in that venue. The important thing is that it works for me. I'm sure you and Nancy are going to love the RT. Still have the Dakar?
