As i've already got the Sportster taxes paid, I'd take the $5K and go riding.

5k is a lot. I'd take the a couple hundred and make a mount similar to this one, throw some shinkos dual sport tires on the bike. Then take the remaining money and buy a nice new Trek or Specialized S Works and take it to the mountains for some fun.
