Yo come back real quick.
For Germans a Stock Road Glide /w just GPS and ABS new is almost 40,000 Euros. It's insane. I bought mine for 20 but for the Germans its more then twice the price. They have a 19% VAT Tax and then another 25% for any HDs.

Prices in Europe are crazy! Lived in Norway for a few years and more expensive there I believe. A 2019 Road Glide Special is $50k or more there and gas prices are somewhere between 7 and 8 dollars a gallon. Hope you can find some good riding buddies over there!

Gas is like 6-8$ a Gallon depending on where you are at. I just have a Standard 2018 Road Glide with the GPS upgrade and ABS and it goes for about 35-40K Euros. Its insane. I paid 20K US for mine. There is a good HOG Military/Local german group that actually does rides and a few other Patched groups that ride around here.
