    You also live in Cali so I can see why you would never close the vent. I have a road king special but I would imagine up in the north east where I’m front being able to close that vent would be beneficial but I wouldn’t know since I don’t one. As always nice video and you see to be the best dealer in cali

    So as a driver, you're not required to provide space for lane splitting, but you can't impede that space you're not required to provide??? Stupidest consensus ever! OH WAIT!! It's California, never mind...smh

    Harley also deleted the XM Radio from the CVO's for 2020. And the real kicker is the XM radio module from the 2014-2018's will not work on the 2019-2020's. You would have to buy another $400.00 Harley XM Radio module.

    In the 90s the fat boy was the coolest thing on two wheels. Now the street glides and road glides rule. Look at the electraglide standard, I love mine it's everything I want and lacking the things that I don't need.

    If you're 6'8" and built like a professional wrestler and you're a quick learner you can probably pull off a road king. If you're 5'8" and kind of timid about it get a street 500 or 750.

    Depends on the rider. Harleys have low seat heights which gives you the reassurance of having both feet flat on the ground. A bigger bike like a road king can be a lot of bike for a new rider.

    You can buy a 1000cc sportbike for $7500. For a nice Garley touring bike you are in the $20,000 - $30,000 range. I have a electraglide standard and I find it to be very comfortable and stable on the highway. The paint quality is excellent. I am over 40, so I don't need to ride wheelies and dart in and out of traffic at 120mph. I am happy to just cruise.

    Clearly not understanding their worldwide market. In Europe the vents need to be closed a lot of the year due to cold and wet weather. That’s a cheap saving at the expense of the customer, and on such an expensive bike compared to other makes it just makes me think again next time I go to buy one.

    Cool bike but whats the point of spend so much money on a Harley to go faster.Harleys suppose to be lay back relax and enjoy the ride.If you want to go fast you buy a supersport or naked and with half of those money that you spend on Harley you can go twice faster.

      @Matt Laidlaw I was driving 1000cc supersports since i was 23 till now always at the edge spending money for tuning road races etc etc and i am thinking that at my 47 at last its time to lay back relax and get a Harley Sportster 883 in about 5-6 months from now.My question above was from a superbike driver that want to leave all those fast things behind i think you understand my point of view.Maybe i will understand better of what you say when i get my first Harley too.To be honest i will like to get it at full stage 1 mostly for sound but thats it.Who knows maybe i will not stop there :)

    Is Harley going to give you two wheels in the 2021 model? I use heel shiftier and that is one thing I liked over all other bike manufacturers. My wife carries a FOB and I have a FOB. Who wants the inconvenience of typing in security code. We use our bags on every cross country trip. It gives my wife the size and amount she is able to bring with. Disappointing in how Harley doesn't discount the bikes yet take away parts of the bike. Can't speak for others, but when riding in cold weather the ability to close windshield vent to deter cold air in the face is frequently used by myself. I ride often with open face or no helmet at all. Sorry but I can not be positive when these items are stripped from future models.

    I Love a Heel Shifter, and My wife and I ride each other's bikes and have the keys to both, so taking away a fob sucks. Who wants to put in a code every time they start the bike. Seems like they're being cheap, just like taking the bags out of the limited.For $32000 plus, a couple bags isn't going to break the bank. It's no wonder ales are plummeting. Wake Up HD.

    Badass build Julio! I like it. But even if I didn’t, the best bike to have is the bike you own. Definitely a fan of the performance bagger though. I’m 6’3, so I’m a touring bike guy. And I like the smooth ride, fairing, and cruise control. Plan on picking up an EG standard next summer. Perfect blank slate.

  • Scott Placella

    Couldn't disagree more on the RG fairing vent buttons. I close mine all the time. Day ride turns into night, temps drop, and if I don't bring a vest or jacket I end up closing my vents. It blocks a ton of air from hitting my core and making me cold. I also close the vents when I get caught in the rain. I often wonder if the people at HD making the decisions actually ride the bikes. I am using my 2nd FOB as well. Heel shifter, never used

    I’ve been reading a ton of posts about how expensive H-D’s have gotten. And I honestly disagree. A 2019 Indian Chieftain Dark Horse starts at $28k compared to a SG for $22k or a SGS for $28k. The road master dark horse is $29k, same as an Ultra Limited. A gold wing is $24k-$28k. I’m sure I’ll get some haters that beat me up over options, but I didn’t see any differences that would sway me one way or the other. These aren’t just motorcycles. They are a legitimate mode of transportation. They can last well past 30 years, and a fair amount of bikes on cycle trader have 75k plus miles. But in the end, this is just 1 man’s opinion

    Nice Job on the video. Thanks! I'm disappointed in the changes. My wife and I each ride our own bike and each of us carries the others spare FOB. We both use the heal shifter. My wife cannot up-shift with her toes anymore. We live in Vegas and the dull finish fades in the Vegas sun. That alone is enough to keep me from buying on of these new bikes. Hopefully that will go away. Also, after getting stung one spring I have closed my 2015 vents when traveling in bee country (main freeways into Arizona and Utah from Vegas and some central California roads) during the spring. When the vents are open, bees are carried through the vent by the wind-stream straight onto the rider. Hopefully, someone will develop a screened insert for the vents.

    Not hating on HD, but I think Indian has them on the feel of a Chieftain Darkhorse. The Center of gravity and reduced front rake makes them feel lighter to handle and sportier in turns.

    Been riding Harleys since 1991 and have been very loyal to the company. But when a company is dominated by accountants instead of engineers the whole dynamics of manufacturing changes to a "race to the bottom" mentality. Remember there is another competitor now and Harley is making them look good. Oh and by the way. Don't be fooled by this "blacked out" paint system. Paint is cheap as opposed to chrome and chips off easily.

    So what’s Harley going to do next year to keep the prices sort of the same? Take a mirror off? The law only requires one you know? Take the Crome/Powder coat off? Start painting the bikes in primer? (They sorta already do that sorry “denim” fans) this used to be a justifiable expense as a premium product sort of like a Leica or a Apple Product... Harley is really starting to boggle my mind here... took a demo on a 2020 Road King Special and the one thing I HATED was the no heel shifter thing

    I have a 2019 Softail Heritage Classic 114, which also did NOT come with a heel shifter. I had one on my previous bike, which was a Yamaha. I was told that the spline on the Harley shift linkage is a problem area and that using a heel shifter adds more stress to that point, and it wasn't a good idea to add one. Could it be that Harley has also recognized the heel shifter as a problem and THAT is why they have left it off? I was told this by the techs at the local Harley dealership AND by friends that have owned Harleys for a long time. It took a little while to get used to, but now I like being able to slide my heel all the way back, which you can't do with a heel shifter installed.

    Hey Matt. So I finally went to the dark side. Got an RK with the RDRS. Tried out the clutch dump control. It didn't lock up the rear tire, but there was still a ton of engine braking. As a safety mechanism, it works. I'll still be rev matching manually if I ride it aggressively, but I doubt I will very much. I also tested hill hold mode. It works as long as you're in gear. If you put it in neutral and let go of the brake, you will start rolling backward. I wish it worked in neutral so I didn't have to hold the brakes or the clutch. Maybe next year. This thing will spoil you when the road is clear. I can see a lot of long days in the saddle with this one.

It’s the fucking outsourcing Indonesia now India China. Every time they ask for something we have to pay. And you know what I’m talking about with the lifters now . Everybody’s going to pay for this with the standard #Warranty Center we’re out of their pockets. ABS is good enough we don’t need all that shit other shit on a big ass bike. LiveWire what a joke how much they spent on that? Come on let’s work on quality bring the bike back to America. I guess you young guys don’t give a fuck. Vehicle hold control Why don’t they just put a fucking automatic torque fly or something in it. Build us some quality motorcycles quit powder coating everything. Here’s an idea quit taking lights off of it and offering to put them on aftermarket. I got a pay for this shit Rodney fucking junk. I mean Hondas are made overseas gold wings they’re good bikes I guess get them to build Harley for you. I just want a good bike I love my Harley I love Harley Davidson‘s but they are giving up on us.

    Harley should stop putting that primer paint on the inner fairing. It makes a otherwise beautiful bike look unfinished, and a little cheap. My dealer told me that the WHIM was now Standard on the new bikes. I have a 2016 and just had it installed. Harley really needs to get up to speed with today’s technology as far as the information system is concerned. I remember back when I bought my 2016 a friend who had a CVO said the 6.5GT was awful, and not user friendly. He was right. It’s like where’s Waldo? Harley also doesn’t seem to care about fixing any of its problems anymore. The last update it had was in January. SMH

    • Matt Laidlaw

      The WHIM is not standard except on the CVOs. The 6.5GT system is really not difficult at all. I will say the GTS system is a little easier to navigate and get to the most commonly used functions.

    Seems Harley is in the business to get people to want to upgrade their bikes. I finally picked up a new Ultra in 2018. Was very impressed with the changes over my ‘09 Road King and ‘10 Fatboy. However, I didn’t understand why the heavier baggers only had the 107 option but the softails got the 114 optional upgrade. Big surprise the ‘19 models came with 114 standard. Also, no black trim option for the baggers unless you get a CVO. Now I see an Ultra has black trim option. Special. Models cost more than the standard model, yet they come with less equipment.... I was happy to see the soft bags come with my Ultra, they make trips much easier. I hand the bag to the wife and tell her this is all you can bring. And 1 key fob? I had my fob blow out of my pocket once. I was able to ride home and get the spare and order a replacement when I had a chance. I don’t ride in poor weather so I can’t comment on the vent doors. However, removing a heel shifter on a Harley is dumb. I use mine all the time. And, it’s the easiest way to get these bikes into N. What were they thinking?

      I appreciate the comment from one one who has owned several bikes. Thanks for sharing your opinion etc.

    Instead of not including the rear shift lever, they should offer it as a free option as you say you’ll do. FOBs are a different story. You have two, lose one, you’re not likely to replace the extra one. Have one, lose it, you’ll have to buy a new one from Harley. People in non CA environments open and close the vents regularly. Less, less, less, less...but as you say Matt, the prices ain’t changed so how this translates to a non-negative, much less a positive, for the consumer is beyond me.

      I actually should have taken a closer look at the prices before I said that because a lot of the prices actually came down.

    I don’t care for the colors I want to get a CVO but going to wait for Harley to use Crome again if I want a all painted bike I go back to my gold wing
