I finally did it

After two months of back and forth negotiating a price/deal with the dealer I brought a new black shark RoadGlide Special home. My Enduro has already taken a liking to her.

I love the power, how she handles, etc. I'm super excited about the long trips I'll have on this ride. As a software engineer and video game developer with extensive UI experience, the BoomBox audio BS is a ----string of expletives---- disaster. If any Harley rep responsible for this trash reads this, I present two middle fingers to you, I really wish I could splash a whiskey in your face at a dive bar. But back to business, I picked this up at a "clearance" price I was happy with, honestly I was surprised how low the dealer let this go for, but he said he needs to clear the floor for the 2020s and since I'm a cheap bas--rd, I'll not pick up a 2020 which will definitely be priced higher this year.

I already threw on a detachable backrest so I can haul all those hot ladies around, but I'm eying all sorts of mods which include some well reviewed Chinese grips. Given that our HD branded Grips are made in China, I have no Gripes about buying Chinese knock offs if they're well reviewed and look cool.

I'm open to suggestions for highway pegs, Led Lighting, and had a question on a waterproof USB plug to go in the cigarette lighter port.

Use this USB plug for the cigarette port, 2x2.4amp outputs and the probably slimmest one on the market :



2019 ROAD GLIDE SPECIAL : Candy Hot Rod Red Flake, Stage 2, 14" KST Renegade bars, Custom Dynamics turn signals, Klockwerks screen, Cobra Neighbor Hater slip-ons, Diamond Audio amp, Hertz speakers, adventblack chopped tour pac, red alligator seat and backrest
