They all feel good but only you can make that decision after the ride is over.
Dave, I wasn't really asking as to which Harley is the best, just looking of opinions regarding the Softtail Deluxe. That was the intent of this thread.

I'll never own them all, but I can try.

To the OP there's now lots of good info here, besides me getting off topic, I hope you make the best decision for you. In truth you can't go wrong the entire line up is great.

I understand your addiction...I too suffer from the same. I really want that Victory Vision but I just don't know where it will fit in now that I have the CVO SG. I mean, the only one I'd get is the Ness Vision. So spending $2500 for the CVO Ultra Glide trunk set up is a far cry from spending $25000 for a Ness. Already got a sportbike so I am desperately trying to stop there. I just never seem to ride the thing now that I got the HD. I've been considering that Breakout also...I'm going to have to seek therapy for this addiction shortly. My pockets will be hurting before long at this rate.

Always loved the softail, as soon as I had a chance to purchase my first Harley I decided on a standard, fxst. I made the right choice for me since its all I ever wanted, pick the one that catches your heart, I love my bike.

Get the Deluxe !

I bought mine for solo and two-up riding. Placing the extra seat and sissy bar only takes a few minutes, travel bag secures on to the sissy bar. 90% on the time I'm solo riding on short rides, like to work and back.

Two-up riding:

My wife would beat me with my own hockey stick while i was sleeping, for making her sit on that "p.pad"....

08 FLHTC. Breathing well and getting lots to drink.

The new Deluxe is a great choice. You will love it. Get some detachable hard bags and you are ready for your commute.
I opted for the Street Glide because it is set up for city street riding, commute and very nimble for a big bike. Well----almost set up after Stage 1, seat, back rest and some other stuff. There is always something.

Thanks for the input. My B-I-L just snagged a '13 SG. He stepped up from a Dyna into it. He loves it thus far, other than the catalytic convertor
