Before I bought my GW last summer I did take a demo ride on a new Harley Road Glide Ultra Low, which was priced right about the same as my GW ABS was. The HD was a nice ride, and my wife did find the passenger accommodations very comfortable, but..... the vibration at idle was not to my liking, the weight of the bike without a reverse gear was less than ideal, and overall it just dropped out of my consideration within thirty seconds of trying the Goldwing. It did have a few things I wish the GW had, including a 6th gear, touchscreen display, and Bluetooth connectivity.
