This is the best bike I've ever ridden never mind owned!

It's super comfortable, has just the perfect blend of attitude and performance, and it turns heads all day long.

My only regret is not getting my short TORS pipes immediately. The sound is awesome now.

What if there were no hypothetical questions?

I got this same color and had the dealer strip everything off an SE model and put it onto mine (shield, bags, seat, floor boards, heel shifter, sissy bar, luggage rack). Then I added moto lights, engine dresser bars with Kuryaken foot pegs, Hogslayer pipes, Rivco risers, easy brackets to take the bags on and off, and had MeanCity Cycle put memory foam in the seat. I also put on the midsize windshield. I love the bike. I've had Harley Tourers and a BMW RT but I just don't do the heavy duty long riding. The most I ride is 5-6 hours a day but mostly go on 2-4 hour rides. This bike is perfect for what I do. And I'm not so sure it wouldn't easily handle the heavy duty long riding.

sgl0226 - Probably about like you are (2 rides this summer Milw to the UP and Milw out to either Badlands or Ill. Ozarks)
Eskerinola - Probably go with a T Bag but are what are the saddle bags-Don't need EZ Brakets (once you have storage space you never go back)

I agree about not taking the bags off. Biggest reason I got the brackets is to take bags off to clean the bike. Very easy to take off and put on.
