My two cents is always on "vast majority of your riding habits and needs" For example, I commute in NYC every day, rain or shine. That means I need a lean, strong, agile bike that will withstand a bump or two and hold its own and get me into and out of a vast array of situations with ease. Be visible, but stay firm. Be fast, but be agile. Be heavy but not that heavy. Only Sportster fits that bill. No other bike can fit in between two cabs on the streets of NYC. On the other hand, on longer day trips, leisure rides, I resent not having a bigger bike, a more comfy, more roomy bike.
and THAT is my excuse to buy the second bike. but for the primary purpose, my bike fits my bill.
had I been living in VA, I would've gone with the V-Rod
had I been living in CA, I would've gone with the fat bob, an FXDF
it's all you, your needs, your wishes. but be aware that usually, no single bike fits the bill. find the need that weighs in the most, with the most utilization and fill that need. then you'll get the second bike later on
there. I have spoken!
