Must show you were using the GS like a touring bike, not an adventure bike. The Harley could never substitute for that use, at least by a sane owner. Again, like I said, personally I'd have two bikes that serve different purposes... hey, I already do... and working on a road legal flat tracker to have a hot rod too! It's nice to have a change of pace.
At least you didn't unload one or the other before knowing for sure it was what you wanted.
