C'mon Travis, think about what you wrote. The reason there are so many H-D dealers is there are so many H-Ds in their shops waiting their turn for repairs. Where I live, there are long waits to get a Harley fixed.I have not ridden an SG newer than 2015...
The nice thing about a Harley is they are everywhere. If you have on the road trouble a dealer will be nearby. The sky is the limit as far as custom and aftermarket parts. The extended warranty you can buy is amazing!
The downside of a Harley is they are like assholes... Everybody has one. As far as the StreetGlide goes... It's a beautiful machine. It's a nice all around bike. My next statement is based on 2015 SG not 17.
The Victory was less money, handled better, has more storage for longer trips, more reliable in the long run. I like it cause, I don't see the same bike as mine 100 times in a 4 day trip.
Plus a Harley is a lot more likely to get stolen by some arsehole lowlife scum as there's readily available aftermarket cases and frames as well as a huge market for hot parts.C'mon Travis, think about what you wrote.

Yeah, the Harley extended warranty is amazing--amazingly expensive compared to Victory's. I was offered a 5 year for $400 and turned it down cuz I knew I would not need it and I was right. Even my dealer agreed.
Re customizing: I have seen a lot of custom Vics where the builder apparently didn't feel any limits.
Engine mods on a Vic are far more easier, less expensive and produce greater results.
Finally, a Harley is a nice short man's or girl's bike--but I guess I really didn't need to tell you all this, did I?
