I have a 2008 Super Glide and a 2003 Low Rider. The low Rider is more comfortable for me and handles better. My 85 FXRS is the best handling out the 3 bikes I own now though.

Shhhh!! Don't be tellin him about the FXRS until I get one for myself. Actually I also got to ride a FXRP (retired of course) and THAT's what I'd really like to find in a barn.

And Sportsters aren't just a girlie bike any more, I've seen more and more girls on Dyna's in the last decade.

Anyway, like we keep saying, until you put your meat in some seats your not going to know what big twin is the right one for you. When you find it, you will know it's the "One for you".

And even when you've ridden as long as some of us, you may find something you like better. I thought I had to have a road king, until I got one and rode it a while. It was nice, but then I rode an Ultra Classic (someone went to jail) and in less than 20 miles I knew that it was the right ride for me. Didn't realize it would take another decade before I got one for myself but that's another story.

And lets not give him too hard a time over the Sporty, it's his fathers ride and he can't help it if his daddy's a __________. LoL (I'll let yall fill in that blank)

I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather, not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

When I was a child, I thought nap time was punishment.
Now it's like a mini-vacation.

I went from a 07 1200 was fun to ride but no for long periods of time. Went to dealership and tested a heritage, fat boy and the FLD and fell in love. Imo it handles really well and is very comfortable to ride, could use a more comfy seat but that's in the future. I've never had a bigger bike in my 30 years of riding but I really love riding it.

04 Low Rider comfortable enough for me. Into my third season with it. I'm not riding a couch on two wheels.

She handles as well as I could expect from a heavier bike, I've thrown her around some turns hard enough to scrape the pegs (forward controls) and the back edge of my boot heels now and then without getting all freaked out, I actually kinda use them as "lean angle warning gauges" anymore.

I've got to go with the Super Glide Custom as well, for day riding my old Glide was hard to beat. Touring on it wasn't as much fun but that's not what a bike like that is made for.

My FatBob with floorboards and handlebar lifts is perfect for me.

I put floorboards and 6" curved risers on my 2009 Fatbob. It is now more comfortable for me. It is my 2nd ride as my #1 ride is a 2012 Heritage Classic.

I only have ridden a Wideglide and a Fat Bob. I liked both but there are differences in how each handle. The Wideglide was very comfortable for me. My only dislike was the narrow front tire on grooved and busted up pavement. That front wheel liked to bounce around a lot. Now I have the Fat Bob. It feels a lot more stable, and cornering is entirely different for me with it. I know, its all subjective.
