2011 Road Glide Custom Vs 2016 Road Glide Special

I will be buying a 2016 Road glide special at the end of May. One of my friends has a 2011 Road glide custom. Im trying to get a side by side comparison of the two. But can't find anything on any site to do some kind of comparison of the two.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
David

Visually, it might not look too different but there are many differences in those model years (e.g.) 96 vs 103, vents, suspension, radio, etc.

Hey Vike, that was cool. Open each one & toggle back & forth gives a very good representation of the visual differences.
Obviously the fairing is different. Bars, front fender, saddlebag lids...
Other differences can be gleaned by comparing specs.
