    I have a 2008 and I love it. Real good handling and balance. 2009's look sweet!

    Here's where I would plan to spend a little extra money:
    1) Seat upgrade if you're going long distance or carrying a passenger
    2) Floorboards for the passenger
    3) Backrest for the passenger
    4) Higher windshield (Clearview with recurve on mine) to cut down wind blast
    5) Speaker upgrade if you really like to crank the music

    Good luck and ride safe!

    Nope - I said a backrest, not a tourpak!

    If you're going to do a tourpak and lowers and a REAL tall windshield, than go ahead and get the ultra. Otherwise I prefer the lines of a Street Glide!

    You will be very happy with the SG . I have had 5 Harleys 2 ultras and 3 softails. the SG is the best handeling and has lots of comfort. I put a sundowner seat on mine and If you can get the ABS it is worth the money. It can be a life saver. I had to use mine once and it was worth the money.
