Alrite let me first explain, for the last year I have been working on becoming debt free (which I did... thank you thank you :a18 and during that time managed to get myself set up to get back in debt the wife and I signed the paperwork to have our 1st new home built...( party at my house in May 2011). Now that I've kinda set things up for you the wife and I agreed that I wouldnt buy the 9 until we got the house done, well now that everthing is done I'm beginning to have second thoughts on the 9 ( as Florida on that episode of Good Times said " DAMN!DAMN! DAMN!") believe it or not guys I'm actually thinkin about a Harley.. YES I SAID IT!! I've been lookin at them for awhile and I love the street glide, I don't love the horsepower or lack of it but I like the bagger look and the batwing fairing and I also have to admit having a belt vs. the shaft of the 9 intrigues me. But on the other hand I simply love the 9 and dreaming of owning some of the bikes that I've seen on this site is what motivated me to keep going so I could get out of debt. I know I could get the batwing fairing for the 9 but I just dont like the corbin-type bags, I would like the bags to be a bit more extended toward the ground. Any ideas?? Cuz i think if i could remedy the bag situation I would push the Harley out the picture. Also if u had a choice would u want to have the belt or shaft?? Thx for any help that u can give........ LATERS!!
