Default Heritage Softail Classic or C90T?

I am looking to purchase my first cruiser. I am torn between the H-D Heritage Softail Classic and the Suzuki C90T. The C90T certainly appears more cost effective and is smooth. I like the look of the H-D better and it certainly has a strong following here in Florida. Other than looks, what would justify spending some $5K more for the H-D? I really want to understand so I don't have any regrets after I purchase one of them.

Thanks!

The best part about the C90t is that old men will stop you on the street to tell you about the C90t they rode as a kid.

If you can't justify it, then go buy the other bike. Simple as that.

Pretty much, you either want the Harley or you don't.

Same reason someone spends a lot more money Keeping a '57 Chevy running than they would on a 2007 Camry. They like to. It doesn't need any justification. There's really no justification for having a motorcycle at all.
