    I ahve had four wings and two different cruisers,. the last wing being a bright yellow 1800. thyen two different cruisers. Got rid of a vulcan 2000 cc and bought the Harley UC. I have had a blast with this bike. The SO likes it and rides when she can. I have put over 12K miles since last Dec. If I knew this bike was this much fun I would have bought one a long time ago.

    So, you came to THE HD forum to ask opinions about UC/GW? I'm guessing the current Hondu guys aren't speaking up very loud here......... UC all the way, hands down!

    I just got my Ultra a couple of weeks ago. I test rode a Wing and several Harleys. I liked both, but bought the Ultra because of the style. The only thing I don't like about the Harley so far is the heat on my right leg.
    My other bike is water cooled and it's a huge difference. It's not bad on a cool day, but we haven't had many cool days lately here.

    You ever been to MacDonalds and asked them what they think about a Burger King hamburger. About the same comparison here. Yep the Harleys are better no comparison.

    I am a Harley man, period. (I own one Honda:rofl)
    IMHO the Gold Wing is the best thing that ever happened to Harley Davidson. In reality I think its popularity and sales "nudged" HD to improve their machines. Hence that is what I like about a Gold Wing. Honestly though, I have never rode one...so I'm clueless about them for the most part.
