I really like my EFI, I have the 4.5 gal tank and a reasonably comfortable two up seat + my wife has a leather pillow that she carries with her so we have some real range with it. I blew out my knees in a work related accident a few years ago so I can't handle a really heavy bike any more and my wife won't ride on the back of a trike (selfish witch! but I really love her alot.). So a Sportster was the perfect compromise. I can get around 250 miles out of one tank if I have to.
