I was a 20+ year Harley owner as well, sold my 06 Street Glide and thought I was done with riding. Test rode a Vision on a whim and bought one a few days later. I still love Harley Davidsons but Polaris/Victory does make a nice bike. From a power and comfort standpoint in bone stock form HD cannot compete with Victory. In fit, finish, and dealer support, Harley Davidson wins by a mile. Just my opinion. My opinion is you cannot go wrong with one of the new Cross bikes. Good Luck and Ride Safe.
To clarify the dealer comment, mostly for # of available dealerships in my area. I have 4 HD dealers within 20 miles, closest Vic dealer is 50 miles, and then 80+ miles.
