So you went for quality over image.....?
Congrats on the purchase.
What color? What accessories? What part of NY?
I've only ridden surface roads there once, 2013, and love the wine country just south of the Seneca Falls. Tried to get one of those huge kegs to go, but we couldn't figure how to mount it on the bike...:smileygarden_de_ban
Mostly solo or two up?
We've had a few converts from HD lately and so far good reports. Look forward to your comparison after you put a few hours in the saddle.
Don't forget to post some pics later....
