    So me and my lady are going to HAWAII :newsmile01: for vacation. We are gonna be staying about 16 days. We are gonna rent a Harley when we get there for a week (maybe longer depends on how her experience is). It will be her first time on one and I want her to feel comfy. My question is I currently ride a 06 BOB. What would you guys recommend for us to rent that would give her the most enjoyable ride and allow for us to make long trips? Well not really long but a few hr trips at a time.

    Thanks

    Ultra or a Road king depending on what you feel best with.

    Road King or the Heritage. Which one of the islands are you staying on?

    Oahu. But we will be visiting other Islands as well. Plan on making a run to the north shore to watch the pipe line surfing not a surfin kida guy but if im there why not say I seen it.
    I like the road king I also like the Ultra. Just not sure how the Ultra will feel compared to my BOB. I want to make sure I am comfortable with the larger bike. However I really want to make sure she has a back rest. I am sure that there are all makes available with a back rest. Guess It all comes down to when I get there what feels the most comfortable.

    If she has never been on a bike before, you may want to let her try it out before you go. Could prevent a headache and heartache.JMHO

    Rented a Heritage while in St.Martin.Virtualy no highways on an island and a ton of hilly turain which makes wieght and menuverability a huge factor.Id go with the Heritage again in a heartbeet.

    Almost forgot..make sure to discuss the disposable shoe factor.

    I`m renting an ultra myself for a trip down to Tennessee from NY. We`ve made trip 3 yrs in a row on my Deuce, but figured we`d try out an Ultra. I just figured if i`m going to rent one, i might as well go big!
