Beautiful bike there!

I wouldn't recommend as a first bike just because it will not inspire confidence, and when you're first starting that's very very important.

I figure if one can afford such a nice chopper there's no reason not to shell out $1500 for a beater to practice on for at least a few months or couple thousand miles, sell for $1000 (since you dropped it twice in the garage by that time) and consider that $500 well spent on NOT having to redo the paint on the custom.

That's my advice. But I can totally see the appeal. I have a soft spot for these monsters.

Which has the frame-mounted fairing? What's the fairing mounted to on the other model? The forks? Which has more clearance on the lean?

You've got a PM detailing it a bit more, but the Road Glide is frame mounted and has more clearance/lean angle.

There are requirements for bikes used on the MSF. For example, you can not use a sport bike on the MSF because of a seat height rule that they have. There are several others, I just don't know them off the top of my head.

remember, just like Defensive Driving, the MSF can get you out of traffic tickets.
