    That's stunning and very similar(in my eyes)to a XL1200X 48 I've seen.

Perhaps surprisingly on twin cams the first servicing at 1000 miles is a big one that cost more than half of the £750 I paid from the off. The 5000 mile service is a smaller and cheaper affair.
    That sounds like a great plan, unfortunately I can't stretch to a brand new one.

    Bluenose's suggestion about the Slim is a good one from similar personal experience. I have a Breakout which has the same frame arrangement, engine but a fatter back wheel. For longer hauls without committing to a tourer with luggage, fairing, radio and all the other bells and whistle paraphernalia that comes with them IMHO the Softail the most comfortable bike I have ever ridden. This June I covered 570 miles in a single day on my return from Hamburg, at the end I was mentally knackered through fatigue but got off the bike after some 13 hours in the saddle without any aches or pains whatsoever.
    Very impressive
