I've always liked the looks of the Tour Glide and Road Glide, but had never considered buying one. I had always been torn between the Road King and Electra Glide. I didn't plan on buying the Road Glide when I went to the dealer. They were advertising and end of summer used bike blowout in August. Among the used touring models, they happen to have three 2005 bikes, a Road King, Ultra Classic, and the Road Glide. All three were Black Cherry and within a couple thousand miles of each other on the odometer. I rode all three, and knew after 2 blocks on the Roadie I was going to buy it, and did. They had it all summer and I was only the 2nd person to test ride it. I took it home for 4K less than either of the other two. The ride and handling sold me. Like the rest of you, I could care less what someone else thinks of my ride. It's freedom of choice, and I made the right one. The others that passed on this bike while the dealer had it for sale made the wrong one.
