I sat on a Harley on Saturday. I found it kinda cool. If I had a million bucks I might buy one.

Naw.

Same here. The only Harleys even remotely interesting to me are way too expensive for my pocketbook (Screamin Eagle Softtail Deuce, Custom Shop V-Rod, maybe a blinged out Road King. A lot of other bikes I'd rather have for my hard-earned dollars though. Now if I was a rich man...

Black. I really liked the red but they did not have one in stock and found the beauty in black- I picked up a stone or something and had a small nick on my rear fender. I bought some "Universal black" colorrite pens and dabbed a little in the crack and buffed. You can't even see the damage. Black is a pain to keep clean but it is very convenient.

Nice choice!!!!  I've ridden a Fat Boy and Wide Glide and currently have a Yammie Roadstar.  The FatBoy and Roadstar are nice to loaf around on, but don't clear corners worth a damn.  The Wide Glide was ok, but was too feet forward for me.  If I were to get another cruiser it would either be the Roadstar Warrior or the Super Glide as I understand they are some of the better handling cruisers w/ decent ground clearance.  Doesn't the SuperGlide have the guages on top of the triple tree vs. on the gas tank?  I'm surprised more cruisers don't do this.  I've sat on a Super Glide and though I liked the more standard feet position, didn't feel all that comfortable since it felt like my knees were going into my chin.  Maybe that changes when underway.

It doesn't. I had forward controls :rolleyes: on mine but had the mid-mount standard pegs also to allow position changes while touring. It (and the sportsters) really needs rearsets, IMO. Great bikes, though. :thumbsup:

My first thought when sitting on the bike was that with a higher seat, the foot pegs would be ok.  What is the seat height on a Super Glide.  I don't remember exact numbers, but I believe most cruisers are under 30" probably more like 27" - 28" in height.  Figure most sport bikes are in the 31"-32" seat height range.  I wonder how that would work out?

I put a thicker touring seat plus a Sheepskin on my FXD, it helped a lot. Still needed rearsets to be truly comfy, though. For me.
