Hello,

I have been visiting this great site and the HD site or awhile, lot's of good information on both. I have been doing quite alot of research on which bike I am going to buy. Either an 08 or newer Ultra Classic or the Goldwing. Last week my wife and I were at the show in Atlanta and set on both. Now I want to rent one of each for a weekend and ride for a day or two as I don't think I would be able to really get a good feel from just a test ride. I can find the UC to rent in Atlanta but not the Goldwing. Does anyone know any place near Atlanta I could rent a Goldwing for a day or so?

BTW, I must dispose of my Z06 Corvette 1st. Until the market heals up, I can only afford one big toy at a time.

Sure appreciate any advice.

Poppi

depends on what you expect from the bike. ya want excellent road manners, cushy travel, great handling, tons-o-power - or - harley cause it's harley (which i like by the way). it's easier to look and feel tough and bad on a harley, if thats yer thing. imho

I live on tough street, further you go the badder it gets, last house on the left.

JK....actually just want to ride each bike for a day before I make my final decision.

Thanks for the reply.

Looks like Nashville is the closest to you. You have the right idea though, I did the same thing, rented one of each for a day.

I enjoyed the comfort of the UC, but not enough to trade my 1st gen Concours in. The comfort and handling of the GL1800 hooked me. I'm in heaven now that I moved from Texas to Cali.
