my bud has one and I love it, I ride a hot rod sporty, its cool in its own way, but to take a serious ride, can't beat my buds bagger. Crap, his bike even lifts the front wheel too! freaked me out, we were leaving our refreshment joint and side by side, he gives me the look, I give him the go and I'll be damned if he didnt yank wheel and haul ass! Funny stuff! I, of course ripped him a new one with my turbo sporty.
Each one has their purpose most definitely. When I decided to get rid of my FLHT i really wanted a FRC or something along those lines, but with the type of riding i do, it wouldn't really be practical (i hate that word). 15,000 miles a year is easy on a bagger.
