Rented Harley Street Glide
Was in Pensacola, FL, area and rented Street Glide for a day. Nice bike. I put about 170 miles on it.
On the plus side, I liked the fairing with music and instrumentation cluster (I've got a fairing, but no tunes and no cluster). Sixth gear was really nice, and I sat more upright on the Harley (due to the drag bars on my 1100). Power was good and the bike was smooth at speed. Range was much better than the V-Star. I could've gone another 70 miles before filling up.
On the negative side, the bike shook at idle when at stoplights, and first gear was often hard to find. The tranny was a bit "clunky", but it was a rental so who knows who rode it prior. It did have low mileage. The seat sits you higher than on my 1100 and the floorboard position was not as comfortable but, again, I added Scootworks extensions to mine. Head buffet was noticeable at speeds above 60 mph, but it had a short shield and I was wearing a 1/2 helmet so that might have had an effect.
The seat was no less or more comfortable than any seat I've ever tried. After two hours my right leg started cramping.
With all that said, don't think I'd spend the kind of money they want for a Street Glide, but it does have me looking at other larger bikes (Yamaha, Kawasaki, Honda) with similar set-ups.
