Hi Laurie - Santa likes good girls on Harleys! I absolutely LOVE my Deluxe. I wasn't sure what bike I wanted in the beginning but as soon as I took her out for a ride, I knew it was the bike for me. She handles beautifully and is very comfortable...both around town and on longer trips. The Crossbones is a gorgeous bike as well...rather, badass girl! :) ...look forward to meeting you at one of the events!
