Welcome from Atlantic Canada. That's a tough call between two great bikes. Personally, I prefer old school air cooled so I'd go with the Roadie, but there are advantages to liquid cooled as well. And of course, with used bikes condition and mileage are factors too. Bottom line, both are strong, reliable bikes and you can't really go wrong with either one.
