I am considering a Power Commander (either with or without Auto Tune) for my 2015 Rocket X. Do any of you have experiences with this product you could share?

I personally think TuneECU is a better bet. For one thing it's WAY cheaper. And it will make you put on your thinking cap. You can download quite a few tunes, but you have to do the tweaking to make it right for your bike. HINT: they all seem to be a tad lean.

i have nothing to prove, and little to lose.

I think the advantage of a power commander is it's still cheaper than tuneboy and if you roll your bike into the local dealership for a dyno tune they're not going to use the freeware? I can only speak for my dealers around here so don't really know what i'm talking about but why else would Sean pick the PC5.

I have had both Tuneboy and TuneECU, much the same in the end but TuneECU is free as opposed to AU$700, no contest. TuneECU was easier to use if I remember.
Not used Power Commander, but same again, why pay when there is similar or same out there for free
