Looking at 07 - 10' road king or 10'-12' switchback. Never owned Harley before. Which is better ride, better built, or just plain better? Don't ride much twisties so don't care much about handling. I'm 5'8" and 230 lbs. Would Switchback be on small side for me. Use to ride a 1300 VStar. Just want honest opinions

Is the Switchback an overall smaller bike than Road king? Would Road king be better, more comfortable for 2 up riding?

Defiantly the King. I have a Dyna and a King, you will be much more comfortable on the King.

I also have a 00 Dyna, and picked up an 09 Roadking in August. It is truly sweet. I love both of them, but they are different animals altogether. Get the King; you will not be sorry.

Just owning a King makes you immediately more handsome than you were before.

True story.

Road king it is. Any particular year to stay away from? How big an issue really is the can chain tensioner on the 06 and older? Is it just somethin that's been blown out of proportion?
