To me, it's the best of the touring models. I have aftermarket windshield, cartridge springs, cam, exhaust, seat, back, header. $$$ You need a lot of after market stuff. Most Harley accessorys are top notch. Harley's best models are the Dynas. The Low RIder is really good. Fun and powerful, lighter. Probably not a a Road King again without water-cooled engine, 2017 model is just barely. Expensive. My 2013 is worth about $12,000 of at least $26,000 I've put into it. But if you HAVE to have a Harley tourer, and I understand having to have a Harley tourer, then this is as good as it gets. I'd prefer a Goldwing right now. But that's only after knowing Harley. I used to have Victory. Here's a photo of me on my Victory Crapshot. Also, Harley people are great. The dealers are great, and the events are great. You can just hang out at the dealers. So no one else has that.

Upgrades: Like I said above, lots of expensive upgrades. Too expensive to ever go that way again.
