Well I did it after agonizing for months and waiting for the 2010's I traded in my Softail Deluxe for a 09 StreetGlide. It was one of the hardest decisions I had to make in a long time, my wife had become very attached to the Softail and tried every angle to keep me from trading it, but when I saw what they had done to the 2010 SG with the single exhaust and no taillight I figured I had better get a 09 before they ran out. Since this bike is not fully accepted yet I named her the red headed stepchild. Today I went out and put 200 miles on her and now I see what everyone was talking about the ride. the 6 speed, the cruise control and the stereo, I love it!
