    The price seems very fair. To answer your question, if you have not rode the bike do yourself a favor and ride and you will answer your own question. On my stock 2008 EG I normally get about 45 MPG. The only common problem with a bagger is you never want to stop riding it..
    Remember someday you will own a bagger....:)

    Allthough I love my '09 FLHX and the '11 you're looking at sounds like a decent deal - take a look at this sweet '10 Road Glide. I'd be all over it @ $18K if I had the ca$h & it's for sale on HDTalking too (member of both forums). Extremely good deal for what it's worth w/huge upgrade list. Good luck w/your bike search & keep us posted if you find one...

    Like New 2010 Road Glide Custom w/Low Miles, ABS, Cruise, Security Many Upgrades
