Default Don't forget. . .

Don't forget to make mention of the FXTR.....the Roadglide's "first cousin" and still a Shark! I saw this pristine example Saturday at Tarpon Springs Fl bikefest and seriously considered grand theft. I used to have an FXDXT that I want back badly (but not at the expense of my Roadie) and applaud the MoCo for trying it again with the Switchback. Anyway, the FXTR bikes were awesome...I want one but can't afford another bike, even If I could find one in this great of a state of repair!

I have contemplated adding that bike, and info about the vetter fairing that was the "original" sharknose type, but there is some info about that already. Your right, its related to the bike,.. but then again its not really a road glide. You can trace the tourglide geneology straight to the road glide,. but the FXRT is a distant cousin by marriage in a way. If I can get someone from the Moco to give me the full history, and the FXRT did indeed play a huge roll in creating the tourglide I would add it.

The FXRT had nothing to do with the birth of the Tour Glide . It came along in the mid 80s well after the TG was out .. I think the idea was and still is great for those who dont want the full size bagger , Super Glide is an awesome bike

Wasn't it also called the "Classic 80"? That was a sweet bike. I remember to this day when I first saw it. A young cop out of Trinidad, CO, owned it as his personal vehicle. We ran into each other a couple of times there, I was riding a /2 BMW, Earles fork, and used to joke with him that I would race him for pinkslips. He always declined, but he would have beat me hands down.
