Got it! It sits in the garage (when not being ridden). A 2013 Sweet Glide. And I have owned Beemers, Ktms, Hondas and even a MV Agusta. Oh yeah, after owning Harley's for 30+ years, I am not a pirate.

For some reason I really like the look of this bike I have never been a fan of bikes with fairings(even my FZ6 is pushing it & its going fully naked sooner or later) or any bike that leans much more than 20 degrees, so sport bikes have always been my least favorite. All personal taste, of course but then this bike has gone and defied my tastes! Ever since I 1st saw the RC8 its been growing on me

I doubt I'd ever ride it, much less own it...but then again I've heard it's pretty nice for tall riders with all the adjustable ergonomics, throw on a corbin seat & some luggage & it just might surprise me

You should NOT see a naked conversion of the RC8 that I have seen, then.

lol, I'd give you my opinion if I could see more than the front
I've seen a couple naked/streetfighter versions and they aren't the best tho KTM's RC8 venom concept is kinda cool. But now that they are coming out with the 1290 super duke they got the naked section covered

If your Road Glide ever sells.. looks like you'll get a proper bike next.

Every Harley is great at what it's meant to do.. since that's only "being a harley".

Yep and mine excels at that!

After being a motorcyclist for over 35 years and owning and riding many different styles of bikes, and having a fairly strong anti-Harley attitude for as many years.... I finally let my prejudice go and gave one a try.

Granted, my sporty doesn't excel at anything in particular, other than putting a big smile on my face every time I throw a leg over and push the start button. Or,
even walk out into the garage and look at it....

Ridden at a rather relaxed, smell the roses pace, I find it a very enjoyable motorcycle. It tickles the right visceral senses for me and in ways that a great many "better" motorcycles fail to do. It's no sport bike and its no touring bike, but for just a casual, fun to ride bike it's just right. A great streetable power delivery, reasonable comfort (I am in the process of improving the suspension though), decent handling when ridden at a sane pace, and just a feel and sound that's just right. I probably wouldn't be satisfied with it as an "only bike" but luckily I have others for other riding needs, so the sporty fits into the stable very nicely. . In fact since getting it at the first of the year all the rest have been collecting dust.

Still sorta surprises me when I think, "me? On a Harley? And I LIKE IT!" But that's the way it worked out.
