I ride a 2009 Road Glide. I am not a Harley "purist" i wanted a touring bike to replace my softail and began looking at everything last year when I purchased the RG. The one thing I like about my bike is that I can remove the tour pak, put on a lower windshield, and really make the bike have some style for around town use. If I want to go on a long trip, taller windshield, lower fairings, sofa seat, and she is in "geiser glide" mode. I respect the Goldwing and particularly like the fact that it is liquid cooled. Harley revolutionized the "bagger" concept with the introduction of the street glide. Brought some "coolness" to touring motorcycles. I was wondering why Honda hasn't done the same thing? It seems to me if they did, they would increase their customer base. Anyone know if this has been done. I saw a GW police bike with the light on the back and no trunk and it made me realize that the bike has some really clean lines.
