New to the Forum

I have been checking this site out for some time and it has been extremely helpful. I finally decided to post a question. I own a 2008 Police Electra Glide and have enjoyed it extensively for the past 3 years. It has the 103 and ABS brakes. I have been looking at the HD1 customization site quite a lot. I can't make a decision between the 2013 Street Bob and Fat Bob. If I decide on the street bob it will be set up with drag bars, mid controls and the 103. Does any body know the difference in the ride between the fat bob and street bob. If I choose the street bob I heard you almost have to have the ABS for stopping. I know the tire size is smaller on the street bob also. I really like the way you can modify the street bob. I plan on riding it to work 3 months minimum of the year. Its a 35 mile ride one way. Any opinions on the ride difference between the two would be much appreciated.
