New to the HD world

Thought I’d finally join my buddies and get a touring bike. Not new, but new to me...an 08 Road Glide in mint condition with only 2400 miles on her. Can’t wait to put on some serious miles....

Wow, a 2008 with only 2,400 miles. Nice, very nice. You've got the right idea, go ride the snot out of it before you start making changes. After some serious days in the saddle, both single and 2-up, you'll start to find those ergonomic items that aren't as comfortable for you (or the OL) as they could be. Harley dealer parts dept. will let you try different seats for it, so that's one item that you can now get right whereas in the past you could easily spend $1,000. buying and trying a couple different seats. Bars and floorboards are other common items for some people to change to gain a higher level of comfort. Then of course comes the obligatory stereo upgrades. Many use the stock head unit but upgrade speakers and add a 100 watt amp as a very good starting point. There's tons of folks on here who'll be glad to help you spend your money on suggested mods.

Nice find! I also have a 2008 and after addressing the wobble, it rides tight and right.
