In all seriousness, did you go with the RG just for the frame-mounted fairing - over something like the Street Glide? I only ask because, and I mean no offense, I think that RG fairing is so ugly. Reminds me of a flying saucer in an old 70s movie.
I ride a Road King - and I love it. Having said that, I moved towards the darkside this year, with the purchase of a K12S.
I'll never get rid of my RK, but that S is a great bike. I rode it almost 4K miles to CCR this year and had a blast. I might even look at other BMW options if my feet could touch the ground.
In fact, I took the RK out today. It took some adjusting to ride that beast, after being on the S lately.
If I just had more money, time, and garage space, I like to dedicate my days to adjusting to various bikes........
