    Im picking one of these up in the next week. Awesome video and review. Confirms why I need this bike! Riding out to Sturgis from Ohio for the 80th in two years with my brother and few friends. Cant frickn wait. Its more about the journey than the destination for me. Thanks for taking the time to do this video. Keep em coming!!😎

    I sat on a Harley road glide and street glide I like the look of a street glide but the road glide was noticeably more comfortable on my lower back I’m roughly 6ft to 6ft 1 n I would recommend aftermarket bars anything over 12 inch apes up to 16 inches max

    I’ve seen this page in my recommended for a while and it’s funny I never knew you were located in San Antonio. I live literally 5 minutes from Alamo and got my iron from them about 4 months ago

    "Who is this bike for?" = Bike N' Bird. You know you want to get it.
    The hydraulic clutch takes some time to get accustomed to. I have the 2018 RG (not Special). I am not a fan of the blacked out look. I went with the stage 2 with torque cam. It suits my riding style and the mountain roads that i ride on. The RG handles better than my 2016 Fat Bob.
    Uncle Ken, what windshield do you have on your RG? Do you like it?

      Love it. It's by Memphis Shades. www.getlowered.com/memphis-shades-spoiler-windshield-for-2015-2016-harley-road-glide/

    I bought a 2018 RGS earlier this year and love it. Changed the bars to Klockwerks Kliphanger 14" bars, and added a LRS 12" wind screen, rider backrest and Sundowner seat. The bars totally change the look and feel of the bike. It rides and handles like a softail! Took it to California in May, 5400 miles, and was totally comfortable.....no back issues.

      test road the new 107 and have to say, straight out of the box, the bike was perfect for me. PLENTY of power, sounded great, fit fine, suspension was good, but I ride a 12 heritage....

    I ride a street glide and was perfectly happy with it. And never liked the looks of the road glide but then I was talked into taking one on a test ride man what a bike! So guess what my next bike will be? Yep I'm gonna be trading my SG in this winter

    I miss SA. Thinking about taking a ride down there this fall. 2017 Road Glide Ultra here. But 90% of the time I have the Tour Pack off and just have sissy bar backrest on.

    Did the test ride comparison between the 2018 and 2019 streetglide specials. Hands down to the 114ci.
