New Shark Convert

Good morning fellow Road Gliders,

I recently converted to a 2019 RGS after 12 years riding Street Glides. Most recently, I had a 2015 FLHXSE that left me stranded every road trip and an engine failure 1,200 miles from home was the final straw 😒.

I am nearing completion of breakin on new Wicked Red Denim RGS and I’m amazed by the difference in handling these bikes offer versus the Street Glides. I can see why RG owners are such a loyal bunch to the bike.

Thank you for accepting me into you forum.

Welcome to the forums. My personal opinion is that the road glide is the best touring bike that HD makes. There's lots to learn here and great people to help. Enjoy the ride.
