I've got an R1200C and a K1200GT. I absolutely love the GT because it does everything I want in an awesome package. The C has been somewhat neglected, but every once in a while, I clear out the moth balls and ride it for a couple hours. It is a very different riding experience - more focused on kicking back and enjoying the scenery. I think both riding experiences have their own attractions, and I can't fault anyone for wanting something different from their motorcycle riding. If the cruisers are out riding, they deserve a wave, as does any two-wheeler - except maybe some squids who are giving all of us a bad reputation.
I've ridden with Harley riders and most know their stuff. The thing that concerns me is the new Harley riders who have no experience and haven't taken the time to educate themselves on how to ride properly. Talk to some of the Harley service people (repairing brand new crashed bikes) and you will get an idea of what I'm talking about.
