Smile From Electra Glide to Road Glide

Hello everyone... My name is DMACK and I have ordered the new 2020 Road Glide Limited. My previous bike was the 2018 cvo limited 115 anniverary Electra Glide. I loved this bike. I didn't have any issues with it at all. I was told that since this was my first bike ever i should have gotten a Road Glide. But its what i wanted so i got it.. and I got to ride it from Houston Texas to Ft Ritchie Florida on my first long haul. But unfortunately on my second journey, from Texas to California i had an accident.While riding in a pack. we encountered stop and go traffic. I was riding in the middle of the pack of about 40 riders. Then all of a sudden the pack had to come to a quick stop. one rider was not paying attention and ended up slamming on his brakes and losing control of his bike which ended up hitting my bike and taking me and a couple more riders out. I sustained a sprained ankle and minor road rash, unfortunately my bike did not fair as well and was a total loss. i have been reimbursed by my insurance company and was intending on buying the new CVO limited but decided to go with the opinion of my peers, to save a little money and get the New Road Glide Limited. So i will take delivery of it in October and will take a long road trip and will let everyone know how my ride was.

Everything worked out and before you know it you'll be riding again
Welcome and congrats from Florida
Your accident is why I don't like riding with large groups never know the ability of your surrounding riders, can't wait for your opinion on the 2020
