Well, I'm currently on an '02 Gold Wing but now thinking of moving on to a big CI bagger. Latest issue of Rider magazine had a feature comparing the Vic XC, Harley Street Glide and the Chieftain. Had me leaning towards the XC but I've since seen a video that had Jay Leno testing the Indian and interviewing the designers. Damn - that Indian looked and sounded nice! Jay loved it. So, I'm definitely going to do some more research, give it a hard look and hopefully a test ride. The elect windshield is also attractive I must say. My main worry would be "first year production" potential problems. Will at least have to give the HD a look too! Just told my wife tonight that I'm looking for a new ride while we were out to dinner... Got a long quiet stare initially but she "thawed" some as the night progressed. She used to ride her own bike (we're both in our mid 60s) so I think I could do this without her leaving me (after 44 years)... $$ not a deal killing issue.
