Some here have actually ridden Electra Glides and know what they are talking about. One thing is saying it's a great touring bike (which it is) and another thing is saying it's a great bike for these kind of courses (which it's not).

People like to contest high tech, over engineering and the most bells and whistles with simple riding pleasure. Yes, simple. Sometimes less is more in that regard. To each their own.
Start it, ride it.

It's subjective and strictly a personal thing. Some still prefer a carb but I was referring more to all the traction control shite and peripheral electronic crap - ya know, the unnecessary.
