Just to re-iterate what's already been said, I'd go with the Road King.

I recommend a 2-step process:



Step 1: forget immediately the Sporster for gossake

Step 2: take the Heritage because the bags will accommodate for the red wine bottles

The website shows the Victory Vegas. Something different and you'll even save $30/day.

But a Goldwing can't mix paint -AND- tour the same way the Harley can.

Unfortunately that model is not available in San Francisco.

So how much was your rental (bike, insurance, tax, etc.)? I'm finding that with Eaglerider it is about $175/day (incl tax and insurance).

Thanks for the advice. The roadking pictured on eaglerider's website has no backrest for the passenger. That surprises me for such a big touring bike.

First, FU to all the paint shaker, parts falling off wannabees who have never been on a Harley or haven't apparently been near one that is less than 20 years old! Goldwing = souless motorcycle, great motorcycle, but souless and the new ones lack luggage capacity, and that my friends is a pity... I own an Electra Glide Sport (that has pulled a side hack for that last 40K miles for crying out loud, and yes, that is the goofiest name ever given a Harley) with 188,000 miles on the original lower end, no parts have ever fallen off and it doesn't leak oil, jerks. if you can't answer the damned question, don't post. Damn squids....done venting.....now, saying that, to answer the question....



If you are camping a Tour Glide or (my preference) an Electra Glide Classic. If you are hoteling or just a day trip, Road King as it is quite a bit lighter, and as a result handles, goes and stops better than the full zuit tourers....I am actually speaking from experience....unlike several poseurs, er, I mean posters above.....
