New to road Glides; not new to Harley

All,

I have been riding Harley’s for the past 11 years except for a break when I decided to try my hand at something totally new while living in Colorado and tried out the BMW R 1200 GS Adventure bike. While this was a great bike the skills needed to truly ride this bike to its full potential (off road) was not in my wheel house especially with my back injury from time in the military. So, suffice it to say I am back on a Harley. Since my first three harley’s were bat winged fairing bikes I decided to give the fixed fairing of the road glide a try so here I am. I am retired from the military now, but still supporting Marine Corps aviation at our advanced weapons school here in Yuma, AZ. While the temps are currently keeping me from putting any serious miles on the bike (110+) I have take several short rides around town and am loving it.
