This bike appears to be gaining favor as my bike of choice as I prepare to buy this fall. Tell me why I would love this bike! :D

- Extremely good looking bike

- Lots of extras included; such as a chrome nacelle, windshield etc.

- Great handling

- Extreme versatility; can go from a bar hopper to a bagger in minutes

- High resale, or trade in value

I'm sure others will easily add to these points.

It sounds more and more like a Road King purchase for me! :lol:

Though I ride a Wide Glide, if I were going to do longer rides a little more often, there would be no decisions to make. Road King IS the choice. The "Touring" chassis is H-D's best. The handling and balance are great, as is the ride. If you like the looks of the King your decision is made. You won't find any "real" reasons not to get it. BTW, I got the WG for the old school chopper looks, rider position, and nimble Dyna chassis. If I had the money I would also have a RK. If I trade, it will be a RK. Of course this is just my opinion.
