Thanks for the replies! I'm really on the fence. I've got an SI joint issue from falling on my tailbone snowboarding with my son like 6-7 years ago, so seat of the pants comfort is really going to be the key. I had a Victory Vegas and loved it but sold it once I moved last summer, then got a Vstrom, and was laid off and sold that thing. I loved my Vegas and it's the only thing I ever reference for a cruiser-style bike. I'm 6'2 260, so I need forward controls obviously. These are my current considerations:

Vegas/Jackpot (bigger seat)
Raider/Warrior maybe, (Stryker seems a bit tiny)
V-Rod, early years and the only HD worth a look
Concours/VFR1200/FJR1300 (Comfort factor,ABS,etc.)

It's all a matter of comfort in the end. I know I can get a better seat on anything. My budget is ideally $9k and under, used obviously with less that 15-20k miles on it. Thoughts?
