From ________ to Streetglide?

Did everyone on here choose the Streetglide from other Harleys or did anyone come from metrics? I am looking at a SG or RG and I ride a Vstar1300. What should I expect that would be different from my current ride? I definitely am looking forward to 6th gear and the aftermarket world! I love to customize and my Yamaha doesn't have anything special unless I want a to look like a total Harley knock off.
I had a 2007 1200c, I've been wanting a SG for a long time, finally I got the green light from the wife this year.
1200 Sportster>Wide Glide>Road King>K1200RS>Ducati 999>Aprilia RSVR>Street Glide Special. I guess I ran a gauntlet to get here :)
I went from:
2006 GSXR 600

2010 Rocker C

2014 SG and never happier!
I started with a 78 Honda Twinstar then Suzuki Katana then Honda hurricane then 04 ultra classic to an 07 ultra classic too my 14 SGS
This was my previous Harley 1988 FXST-C , there were 10 motorcycles before this starting with a 1963 Honda 55 trail


The 2014 Street Glide was a real upgrade

Wasn't happy with it because of the power. Had it a year. Then I traded up to the Stratoliner Deluxe (2010). 1900 cc 113 cu in. Lots of power.

Wanted another gear, cruise, and a host of other options so away she went.
I went from a BMW 1600 GTL. Great ride but couldn't make it my own. Everyone seemed to have the same one as there was very little for accessories.
81 Kawi KZ-400 LTD> 06 Honda CBR600RR>07 SG>87 BMW K100LT>04 Sportster>14 SGS

Had 3 in the garage at one time and had 2 in the garage for about 5 years, still have the 04 Sporty (wife's now)
I've only ever had my 2012 Sportster before this one. I still kinda miss it, but I wouldn't want to give up the storage and other features I get out of my SG to get it back.

Sure was purty though.

army surplus triumph 500 - honda 350 - honda 750 - yamaha 250 enduro - honda 125 enduro - honda 500 silverwing - honda 900 - bmw K100 - bmw r1150r - bmw r1200c - victory vegas - harley fatboy - harley roadglide - bmw r1200c - bmw r1200rt - harley streetglide

Of them all - the streetglide and roadglide were the most comfortable and enjoyable rides, with the R1200C's a close second.
