I agree with OP my 19 Heritage was a lot easier on the hand than my 19 RGU unless it’s just in my headREALLY!! You are drinking the Mothership Kool Aid. What BS that HD would take away the hydraulic clutch. I have several Harley's in my garage and the one's with the hydraulic clutch are superior. Don't get me wrong about enjoying the older models but get real. They did it to save money and one day they will be out of business.
