You might want to give a look at the police versions of the Road King. Possibly the best value in Harley touring bikes.

Their strengths are that they're a few grand cheaper, have the best hard bags the MoCo has to offer, they come with Street Glide/Road Glide cast wheels and arguably the best one-up seating on a Harley touring bike. A real mile-eater.

Conversely the weaknesses are... Well, all you get is the basic cop colors! Black, white, green, red and a few two-tones. And due to the police controls on the bars they don't offer factory cruise. And for folks under 6', the police seat is a tad high and rearward. At 5'9" I can still flatfoot it but it makes the bike feel larger than the standard RK or RK classic feels. And some folks don't care for the plain looking SG/RG wheels or the fuddy-duddy fender guards/bumpers.
