How many times have fellow Harley owners said this?

You get some guy who buys a Street Glide, and then slowly starts adding stuff to it, next thing you know, he should have bought an Ultra Classic to begin with. Here's someone's story posted on HDForums...


Man, I have been back and forth 100 times. I started out wanting an Ultra, negotiated a price with the dealer, and then started to second guess myself... I began looking at the 07 SG and just loved the way it looks... I convinced myself that I didn't need all of the "extras" that the Ultra came with and go for the SG. I called the dealer and put a deposit on the SG.

Then I started adding a few "extras" that I wanted. Sissy bar/Pad for the little woman, Cruise Control for me, Passing lamp kit, etc. Before I knew it, I was spending more than I would have spent for a brand new Ultra where all of those things come standard! Arghhh..

So I called my now very frustrated dealer and asked him to switch my deposit over to a new Red/Black Ultra. I would like to know what someone else requested in a different thread... Is there a way to make the tour pak a quick detach setup so that I can remove it when I don't have a passenger or need the trunk?
You can read the whole thread, and read the countless times people tell him that he should've bought an Ultra...

I bought an Ultra Classic a little over a year ago, and haven't really regretted it. A buddy of mine tells me I should've bought a Road Glide instead, because the fixed-fairing makes turning more easier. I'm sure he's right on that. But then I would've had to buy the tour pak, the quick release kit, and the comfier seat to make the wife happy. The Ultra Classic takes you right where you want to be from the start.

Seems like it's cheaper to just buy a bike with everything on it. You can always take stuff off of your bike, and still have that piece laying around when you need to put it back on.
