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.
Ever get lost? You know, that good kind of lost - come to a dirt road intersection and you have no idea where you are or which way to turn? I like when that happens!
