    My first motor was a road king, loved it until I rode a 2012 Road Glide Custom with significant upgrades. 10 inch apes, progressive shocks, stage 2 motor upgrade with dyno tune. Rode that bike for 5 years and 47k miles. Then I started riding the Polaris Indian. NOTHING handles like a POLARIS Indian, outperforms any HARLEY on any day. You don't believe it, do an 18 foot U-turn on a Harley then do it on an Indian Polaris motor. Night and day difference. I currently own a 2017 Indian Roadmaster and 2016 Harley Electra Glide Police motor unit, and my Indian outperforms the Harley on a regular basis.

    11:14 Sound is NOT a "safety issue". That's H-D propaganda. You don't hear bikes behind you, no matter how loud they are. In front of you, you see them. No need for all that noise. It's just annoying. A bad reflection on riders in general.

      @Cycle Rider/ Poser-- Enjoy your "All-American" lump of way overpriced scrap iron: Frames made in India, wheels in Australia, carbs and injectors from Japan (by a Honda Motors subsidiary), starter motors and wiring harnesses also from a Honda-owned company, as well as newer brake parts. And your OEM tires were probably from Italy.
      No one expects H-D owners to be smart... just at least 60-65 y.o. ;o)))

    As a 1st Generation Road Glide owner (Evo powered) I am ALWAYS in awe of how far these bikes have evolved over the years. Here's my 95th Anniversary Road Glide which is 100% stock and unmolested with only 136,000 miles on her. I was fortunate enough to get the Chief designer of this particular model (Willie G) to autograph her last year while at Daytona.

    Ok here is my problem with the majority of Harley reviews, it’s all about the frickin infotainment system, speakers in the saddle bags, etc. how about suspension,motor,performance and yes Iride a 18 limited and luv it.

    • sirpunishm623
      sirpunishm623 10 months ago

      Well the suspension is in its 3rd year , only real new thing is infotainment system.
      The 114 isn't new either so they've all been reviewed before.

    Have a question about the nav. The old system will not alllow you to disable the audio portion in a programmed/guidance enhanced route, only turn down the audio. It will constantly pause your music when there is a turn in the system. Does this one allow you to disable the audio altogether and utilize visual guidance only?

      @Thomas Green dont know where you at in Our world but if you looking for best deals on the power cruiser low rider Fat bob is here in Alabama my 17 Dyna S was bought slightly used in 17 for 14 grand had 620miles saw a low mileage 18 Fatbob 114 guy was asking 16,000 or best offer Alabama more a bagger state SG an RG's rule here so no real deals in that area worth checking cycletrader Alabama or Crigslist Alabama

      JonnyRoadblock 10 months ago +2

      Perhaps you aren't nimble? Perhaps you need to learn to ride better? I am not sure what "I've owned many Road Glides," quantifies to; however, I have owned 3, (2009, 2011, and 2018), and compared to the other touring bikes, 2017 Road King, 2018 Street Glide Special, I will say, the Road Glides and Road Kings are the most nimble touring bikes... but my riding skills are high.

    Totally agree that the Road glide rocks, it’s so nimble and sweet to ride, an 18 special is my first Harley, and the more I ride it the better it gets.
    Question... I just watched your review of the18, then the 19 so, would you upgrade from an 18 to the19?
    All the best to Miss Bird as well...Cheers!
