I have owned many metrics in the past. As a matter of fact I still have my 06 vtx1300r (Ruth) because it has been such a good bike that I just cant bring myself to let her go. Most recently though, I traded my Indian Scout Bobber for a ''new to me'' 2016 FLHX (Ethel) and have not looked back! the HD is like butta!! I love her so... any questions you have, just PM me. Im glad to help
1978 FXE new in 78, 1990 Heritage new in 90, 1999 Road king new in 98,2007 Superglide bought used in 2009, 2014 Road King new in 2013, 2019 Street Glide new in 2019 and my 48 Indian Chief Bobber I had since the 90's and still have.
I can't say that I went from a KTM 1290 Super Adventure Touring to a Street Glide Special as the KTM is still in the garage and will remain with me forever. Two completely horses with two widely different functions. But I did finally buy a Street Glide so that the wife can go riding with me, and to tell the truth I've always wanted one. Couldn't be happier with the current status of my stable.
If I could figure out how to post pics I would. Trying to post pics from my file and I just won't do it.
I moved to live in Thailand and Is been a long list: Start with R ninet --> R1200gsa 16 LC--> Burgman 650 --> Yamaha super tenere 1200 --> R1200Gsa LC 20 again --> K1600 Grand America ---> R18 Classic.. I found R18 classic is rather boring so I end up trade it for Street glide special. I was hesitating between Road glide and street glide .. but end up choosing street glide cuz is more classic, and I like the SG handle bar position better. Wasn't sure about the wind buffeting from Street glide.
Speaking of my first Harley, she was a box-stock 1978 Super Glide that I: added 16" apes; 4" risers; 'homemade' wide glide-style triple tree; removed front brake assembly for less cabling on the bars; replaced SG tank with split 5 gallon; Cobra Python pipes; and I forget what all else but she was my kick-starting-only beast from 1983 to 1993 and is one that I still SOMETIMES miss very much.
If I can figure out to get a picture uploaded (attempt fails every time I try), you'll see a selfie made while I was waiting to cross into Canada (and be inspected) in 1989 at the Pigeon River, MN border crossing. I made it though just fine and partied hard in Thunder Bay, Ontario for a few days afterwards...
