Welcome Rob, I'm also new to this forum but not new to bikes. I'm riding a 2012 Multistrada, it has the riding position that reminds me of my younger years riding dirt bikes. I think learning to ride off road is one of the best skill builders there is, plus the dirt was a lot more forgiving than asphalt when you goofed up! Which Duc are you contemplating? Well no matter what you end up with your going to have fun being able to push your lean angle and not drag a hard part right a way like your Harley.
