Finally out of the Army. Need advice on Road Glide

I have been riding a sport bike for years, but now feel it everywhere.
Looking to buy a 2015 and up Road Glide. Cash is tight, so more 2015, 2016.
wife's condition is abs, GPS and alarm system. Mine are apes, exhaust, air etc.
Located In Killeen,by Fort Hood.

Any mid ranged bikes out here

Any dealers still have a 2015 or 2016 leftover

Any help to make this dream happen would be awesome.

Thanks in advance,
RedEye

Cycle Trader and EBay have a lot of listings, call around to different dealers, also join the various Harley/ Road Glide/ Bagger groups on Facebook. Deals are always coming up, be a little patient something will come soon, you picked the best time of the year to start looking for a bike IMO.

Thank you for your service.
Heading into winter there should be plenty of bargains to be found. Motorcycles don't sell well in many parts of the country this time of year. As others have said, take your time. Look for clean low miles, and don't pay extra for other peoples customization. For that matter, be wary of anything with engine modifications.

Welcome from Minnesota and thank you for your service. Sounds to me like you want a Road Glide Special or Ultra. Cycle trader set to a nation wide search will give you plenty to look at. Lots of dealers will ship for $300 to $500. So if it's far and not riding weather you can fly there, test drive, ship it. You may find a deal on a new one if you look hard and are willing to travel. I found a new 15 RGS last winter.

Congrats, and thanks for your service, as some have said above look around, I got a way better deal buy going to a Indian dealer and bought my Road glide there, I paid 3k less buy going through them on a newer, less miles, and more mods been done.

Good luck and don't forget have fun on the test rides!

congrats on making it to retirement. now you get to start having fun...

be aware that gps and alarm can be added if the bike you are looking at doesn't have that. abs, not so much.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.
