Re: Bagger Blatherings
I was on H-D for 20 years, including the last 4 being "baggers'.
The term normally refers to H-D's large frame bikes which come with bags as OEM equipment... Electra Glides, Road Glides, Street Glides and Road Kings.
The magazine is trying to be trendy.
As for not including the LT... well I have no idea but to say the other comments are right-on. If they include Concours, and Wings why not FJR's, RT's etc... they all come with "bags".
Having added nothing to this conversation let me say that IF I wanted a large Touring bike, I would not look at LT's... a new model Harley maybe, or Wing... but LT's are problematic... at least by reputation and comments on this board.
But I love my RT.
