I'm running the Pulstar plugs. I think it starts better and idles better when cold.

I buy my spark plugs at O'Reilly. I get Autolite as do most of the engine builders around me. Less than $2 and a great plug. Also get my Wix oil filter there.

I just run HD OEM plugs they don't cost that much and they work fine. People change the plugs on the bikes too often most of the time, if the plugs are burning right you can get 75,000 to 100,000 miles on them.
How often do you change the plugs on your automobile???

The plugs on modern automobiles aren't the same as they used to be, nor the same as the ones on you motorcycle. I doubt very seriously if the plugs on your motorcycle will still be efficient at 75k miles.

The stock plugs are 100% prefect for the job. This is just more of that if it is HD and stock it must be bad. Fueled by more after market BS. None of the fancy plug do a darn thing for you.
The so called gold this and that plugs last longer but stockplugs go 15 K and more anyway.

We also run the NGKs in both of our in-house Glides. Ran these for years in our race cars as well and have always considered them one of the best.
