Default 2015 Road Glide - New Design Wish List

If you were making the call, what new features would you add to the 2015?

Prior to getting my 12 Ultra, I had a Victory Vision. That bike had a few things going for it that I would like to see on a next generation RG.

1. The power windshield. You could get as much or as little wind as you wanted. At highway speed, you could raise the windshield and stay dry in fairly heavy rain.

2. The radio was much more integrated and much easier to reach. And you can add the iPod module for $100.

3. Heated Grips - They came standard and took 20 minutes to change them if you wore them out.

4. Heated seat was standard too.

5. Tip over protection. You can drop that bike over on it's side and not hurt a thing. I saw a guy slide one through an intersection and not hurt the bike.

That is my wish list.

What's yours?

Here is a couple items

1 A fairing that lined up easier with threaded inserts to bolt into with hex heads.

2 Custom fat handle bars to match the bikes size

3 Engine temp gauge

4 A bigger frame to open it up around the motor up and stretched back.

5 No epa restrictions

6 Fog light

7 100,000 no maintenance on anything

I'm w/Johnny, also I'd like to see a stronger bottom end and more power from the factory at least in the 110's also bluetooth

a liquid-cooled third headlight that turned with the fairing, which was much closer, though not as close as a batwing.

Nah...

I wouldn't mind seeing an upgraded radio, stock 500-watt 4-channel amp, built-in ports for heated gear, oil temperature gauge, i-Pod harness stock, real shocks in back.
Other than that, don't change a thing.
