I used to like my Street Glide but when my wife decided she wanted to trade her softail for a bagger but didn't want an FLH, we looked at the CC and we liked it. She said if she gets one, then I have to as well. I wasn't awash in HD kool-aid even though we owned two of them and had no problem with that. Funny thing happened along the way: Last week we traded her Solara for a Mercedes Benz. As a result of inherriting a car payment as the Solara was paid off, I decided we were going to downsize to just one bike and went with the XCT instead. I'm going to need another car before too long as my TL has over 200K on the clock and I didn't want 4 vehicle paymnets. Long story short, I think the CC/XCT are just better than the Glide and Ultra. The hogs do have some things that are better but they are minor in the overall picture. Things like audio and cruise control switches, more solid feeling saddlebag lids/locks don't make a bike. After only 40 miles, I can feel such a difference in ride comfort, power, handling, braking and so on. Not only that but how many more decades is Harley going to use the same fenders, bags, fairings and so on? Those FLH's are stuck in the 70's and too many manufactoring flaws with the engines have taken their reliability to pre EVO standards. I won't miss wondering if my bikes were going to be next to have major issues.
