Pop a windshield on it and a good seat like a Mustang, and you'll be able to ride it forever.

500 mile days were no problem on my Dyna.

The guy mentioned a CVO Softail. That's similar to a Dyna.

OK. I'm certainly not a Harley expert.

That second one looks a LOT like my Honda.

No.

Hell No.

NO NO NO.

"Pop a winshield and seat on it" means you'll have bar hopper that only requires years of therapy to recover from, rather than actually crippling you. That bike is built for show; you might survive a 500 mile day on it from time to time, but you'll never put 3 or 4 500 mile days together on it. Seriously, would any of you, Buzz, ER2, Seru, go out and buy that bike to use for LD riding?

KHains, there are countless better choices for distance riding than a CVO Softail. If you like Harley, look at a Road King or an Ultra Classic. At least they have suspensions and usable luggage.

You're right Ken, but I just didn't care to get involved in this one. I wouldn't buy any big twin Harley or anything that weighs over 600lb for any reason any more. Why waste the keystrokes? Motorcycles aren't rational purchases anyhow.
