Having said that, I will say they had a loyal following and I can understand why some folks would really like them. Different strokes for different folks.
As much as I love my Iron, I'd totally agree with you on the parts I bolded. I definitely know that I'll get more comfortable with more seat time, but I'm definitely drawn to a Softail, Tourer, or Trike (only way wife will 2-up) as my next scoot.
