    I like it and then I don't. I liked the sporty gold wing until I saw it in person. I think it would be a great bike to ride but to me it's somewhat of a miss. I see it as a sport tourer with a relaxed riding position. Baggers give you comfort features other than saddle bags which can be thrown over pretty much any bike and come in many forms.

    To me it's missing what an American market would have in a bagger like audio, wind protection, and comort. While it looks comfortable i don't see riding it with out a full face out of necessity for lack of wind protection which negates any audio options.

    Except if you have bluetooth in your ff helmet.

    But for me, a requirement of a ff helmet is a show stopper because I like to have the wind in my face, hear the sounds, smell the smells, etc. FF helmets are for rain protection.

    I like it with the exception of the rear end being to short for my taste. I think if you were to stretch the rear fender and perhaps have the bags stretched out just a tad, maybe even over the pipes a bit, it would balance the look out. Front end leading up to the bag area looks cool as hell to me.
    If I'm not mistaken, looks as if this does come with a stereo system Lance. Also, I've never been on a road glide before but by looking at the way the fairing is positioned on this Beemer, is it much different than the roadie as far as wind deflection to the rider?

    I'd ride that but I do not like the Woody look. The riding position looks uncomfortable to me also. I think maybe more of a feet forward cruiser style would be in order. I do see speakers by the bars but I'm not a fan of stereos on bikes. The convenience would be nice but I know nobody wants to hear my music, I am happy with my Bluetooth helmet.
