If you have the need to be always out running the group then you need something else other than a Harley.

Try a Boss Hog. It's a bike with a Chevy 350 for an engine. Then you can be all by yourself in the distance or splattered against the back end of that semi way up there (hopefully not)

Enjoy your new bike. And ride safely.

I know the Streetglide is popular,but did you know that it has 3/4" less suspension than the Electraglide classic,and it does not have the passing lamps or top box,and is the same price. Have you ridden the 96" and 103" back to back,I have. The 103"er is much smoother while having a bit more torque. I own and ride a fatboy with a 96"b(counterbalanced) and the 103"er is as smooth as it. For my money the 103" Electra Glide Classic is a better buy.

I have a 2012 SB and I've never thought it needed more, but I rode a switchback with the 103 and that is a sweet motor . . . really smooth (on the same frame) and powerful feeling. Just a seat of the pants feel as I never really cranked on the switchback, but it made me wish the 103 would have been available when I bought my '12. It ain't a huge difference, but to me there was definitely a difference. My .02

Oh yeah . . . Congrats on the new bike either way! The SB is a great platform to customize . . . or not!
Pay it forward!

The amount they charge from the factory is absolutely cost effective for the upgrade to 103. Because down the road if you want it (which will probably cross your mind) it will cost more after the fact
