Really like the looks of the 2020 Road Glide in Tahitian Teal

Really love the look of the 2020 Road Glide in Tahitian Teal. Probably because it reminds me of my favorite bike of all time pictured below, 2004 Road Glide.

Love the color.....hate the accents. The Tahitian Teal, not the one in the picture.

I'm a big fan of the Tahitian Teal also. I think that's either a color you love or you hate. I told a friend of mine I liked it and he looked at me like I was nuts.

I think you are correct Teal does not seem to be a popular color with Harley Ďs. Though my first Harley was a 2001 Dyna Super Glide in a color that was called Real Teal. My next bike was a 2004 Road Glide in a color called luxury Teal. Thatís the bike that is pictured at the beginning of this thread. I think I tend to like the colors that the majority does not like because as far as I can remember Teal was only offered for those two model years, 2001 and 2004, and now 2020.

When I first saw the Real Teal color I didnít like it but I thought it was the best of the available colors for the 2001 Dyna, and since the Dyna was my first Harley it has special meaning for me. Ever since I rode my Yamaha past the Rock Store in the early 80s I dreamed of owning a Harley.

I've got to see it in person before I make my mind up.

When I hear teal I think of mid 90s "barbie" bikes and Teal Mustangs and Trucks.

Yep, probably why they only offered Teal two model years out of the last 18 years. I bought the Real Teal Dyna mainly because at the time they only offered it in black, dark red, dark blue, and teal. Teal was the brightest color out of the bunch. Originally I was going to get a 1200 Sportster as my first Harley but I thought it would be better to get a model with the full sized engine.

The 88TC had itís issues but for me it got the job done and heat wasnít an issue. Bikes were lighter too because of it.

I can't remember if it was 2001 or 2004 but they put out a two tone teal and white Road King Classic. Still one of my favorite color combinations, especially the way they did it on the RKC. Teal on top, white on the bottom.
