feel the same about my 08 EGC as I did about my 06 Road King. Owned the bike for well over a year now and have over 13k on it. I was afraid I had made a mistake as I just didn't feel connected to this scoot like I did my 06 Road King. Well...I got married last week in St. Augustine, Florida. True to form and despite weather reports to the contrary, it rained on the last day. Not wanting to ride with a passenger, I left early whilst the wife and family drove the van home. On the way home, I was initially miserable in the rain but once the sun came out, I was cruising down Hwy 100 into Deltona, Florida listening to the engine purring and..BOOM...suddenly felt that old connection kicking in. that feeling that all was running smoothly and, as I do my own maintenance, I was responsible for it, only made the feeling better. I am suddenly loving the 08 EGC.
