Does it work for Buell's? The Uly looks like lots of fun and is supposed to be really good for two-up riding:thumbup

Otherwise I haven't got a clue but enjoy:banana

Get the big bagger if you are taking the wife. She will have back and arm rests and both of you will be comfy. Then point it north toward Big Sur. Pay for an extra day of rental, it will be worth it :)

sounds like another road king rental.

:rolleyes

actually i quite like the mass and throbbing of the road king
:)

foghat. im guessing your never spent any time on a cruiser.
while they may be boring from a wheelie perspective, they absorb miles like a sponge and you can find YerSelf very far from home with pretty much minimal effort. :banana

my pop has a Ultra Classic (full on touring bike) and it's the tits for cruising. when i had my old Katana, we switched for about 50 miles and it was just rediculous how comfy and easy to ride it was. the 900 lbs will scare you in tight situations, but on the road there's nothing like. you can ride with your viser open at 90 and get no wind from the big ass windshield/front fairing. plus, you can blast some tunes, or even throw in a CD and listen to the 4 speaker stereo! and you can ride all damn day on it and nothing gets tired. my pop did a trip to Seatle and back in one weekend, and he said it was more comfy than his Lexus was!

nice! A Heritage Classic was my pop's second choice, but he wanted ultimate comfort for two, even tho my mom never rides much.

you'll have fun!
