Default So, on my ride today...

...I was thinking about possibly trading in the C for a Dyna Glide Custom at the end of the year. As I was riding I took notice of the Dyna's I came across. I thought what would I need a bigger bike for? Sure, it has the TC96, not even the 96B. More horses but over 100 pounds heavier. Slower steering, less agile. More comfortable on long trips/2-up, but I don't do either of those. I commute (7 miles each direction on surface streets) and ride back roads on the weekends to get away.

After my ride I stepped back from the bike and said, nope don't need a bigger bike. I love the C. It's so dang fun to ride!!!
