2008 FLTR to 2018 Road Glide Special FLTRXS Bonneville Salt Pearl

First off coming from a 2007 FLTR then a 2008 FLTR (Current sled) this is a totally different bike. I put a lot of miles on my current bike but I feel it would be no problem to put 1000 miles on this 2018 and not be tired after the ride. The throttle response is great on these M8’s. I am loving this bike. I have passed over some seriously great deals on several 2018-2019 Roadies mostly from private owners with very little miles. I chose this bike because I didn’t want to go thru the whole customization thing like I did my last 2 bikes. ( Paypal and Amazon controlled me financially lol.) As you can see the previous owner did some tasteful upgrades and with 433 miles on the clock and an extended warranty til 2023 it was a no brained to me. Also has a Woods cam upgrade. I’ll load the dyno sheet in the dyno section later. My upgrades coming soon are, Lowers, different air cleaner because the one on it now won’t work with lowers, 14 KST Spearhead bars coming next week (currently has the 12 in KST Renegades and they will be for sale). Maybe a nice 21 in wheel up front, MAYBE. So stoked about this bike.

Great looking bike and nicely equipped. I haven't priced one since I bought my 2011, but the chopped TP, bracketry, and pad alone most cost well over $1,200 these days. Now go ride the snot out of it! It'll take a lot of miles before the smile disappears from your face!
