I posed my questions on the new member page and got no response, so here goes again. I currently ride a 11 Street Glide that I enjoy. But... After a test ride on a XCountry, searching these forums and watching you tube videos, I was left wondering if I'm missing out. The handling was amazing and I can see with minimal work the power will exceed that of my SG. My question is to all the Harley touring converts, is it that much better? I do several long trips from Houston Texas to all over the place during the summer and I want the best, most reliable ride possible. I've been a die hard Harley guy for about 15 years but that test ride made me think... Give me some advice or opinions. Thanks in advance.
