From FLHTKL to FLTRXS in Billiard Blue!

Traded in my Black 2015 Limited Low for a 2019 Road Glide Special in Billiard Blue. Still cold her in MN, but in the few miles I have put on so far, I LOVE IT. I have always had black bikes/trucks/cars...heck, even my Aluma trailer is black. This time I decided to step out of my zone with the Billiard Blue. One look and I was HOOKED!

I have already done some mods (4.5" Tab Bamsticks w/Zombie baffles, intake, SE tuner, 14" Factory 47 Sig bars, heated grips (cold AF in MN!) some lighting and a TourPak for the wifey when touring). Still trying to decide on which Klock Werks shield and low profile seat to get.

Thank you all for sharing your knowledge and experience! I will learn as much/quickly as I can, and pass it on. Proud to join the ranks of SHARK NATION!

Welcome to the forum from NE Ohio.

I have the 14" Sportflare. I'm 5' 10" and its perfect. I have the 12 F47 bars. They dont touch the shield at full lock. I also have the low profile touring solo. Love it. On long trips I use and airhawk r and leave the Hammock seat at home.

Welcome from Michigan. I feel your pain about the cold. That is a great color. Keep thinking about the Bam sticks to replace my RCX 4.5's. I want just a little more noise, but concerned how they are at cruise to listen to tunes. With your limited time so far, what are your thoughts on them? Just want to announce my presence a little more on the slabs, annoy the neighbors slightly and piss off the cagers....
