An excellent choice for a full-on tourer that still has the Harley street cred

Great looking and very, very comfortable
Lumpy fairing and it loses out to the Electra Glide

Capable retro tourer. We'd still rather have the Electra Glide, though. The fairing throws the looks out of kilter and gives it a front-heavy feel.
