Ride what you like, really. But sometimes it almost saddens me when people will not even consider any other brand/type of motorcycle, because I feel they will never know what different -and possibly better- stuff is out there.
During a break of my MSF course I asked a couple if they already had an idea what kind of bike they wanted. The guy said "Dunno which yet, but it's got to be a Harley".
I asked him if he looked into naked bikes, adventure bikes, sport tourers or inbetweeners like the Honda Nighthawk. He responded "Well, Harleys are all naked and the FLTHCWTF401K with Screaming Eagle kit is pretty sporty. The DOHCXKCD has nice bags so that's what I would look at if I wanted a sport tourer, they say it corners really well with the Suspension Kit!".
I said "cool", wished him luck and held the urge to shake my head until I was sure he wasn't looking.
What a shame, to limit yourself to one brand and think it has all the best solutions.
Anyway, I think in the end he will have gotten what he likes, so that is all that counts.
