2018 "road glide" special bags

For years I've loved CVO bags and the way they are only extended in the rear. You just don't see many of them and people normally go with the fully extended bags. I just wanted something different. I always wanted to put them on my old 06 road King but never had the money. Then when I bought my 15 RG I decided I was going to do it. Then the 2018 RG special came out and they have "CVO" style bags. Now I feel like if/when I do it I'm just going to look like I'm trying to make my 15 look like an 18. I realize how stupid this sounds. It's just the way my head works. So I think I'm still going to do it but I can't find them. Does anyone know where to get them other than through Harley?

no, get the bags that you want. the extended bags were available in 2015 on the cvo street glide. so it isn't just a 2018 thing.

as far as where to get them, can't really say. I've heard advanblack has a good rep.

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

I had some on my 2015 before I traded it in. I was the same way, Didn't really want the full extended bags as I didn't want to change out my whole rear end to make it look right. So I ordered through boardtracker. I think my total was around 1100 for color matched CVO bags, which was about 200 less before tax than my local dealer wanted.

I don't know what color bike you have but with a "hard candy" color, I wanted an exact match. So I went with HD stretched bags. They were about $150 cheaper at Broadtracker Harley than they are listed at. If you go with OEM stretched bags, make sure you check out Broadtracker's prices. They were the best I found.

I've been looking for some aftermarket CVO style bags as well. Can't seem to find any, only fully stretched bags.

I just danced this dance last winter and in the end......just went through my dealer and asked them to match discounts that were on the net (Boardtracker & Such) - I looked at EVERYTHING and in the end, went with the CVO Stretched for my '17 - Just tell your local dealer you want to be loyal, but need to be smart with your $$ too........if THEY are smart, they'll work with you on a price you are both happy with

I bought the HD bags as they were the only one that offered Hard Candy Gold. Dealer took off $400. $1400 + tax.
