I've been running one for almost 5 months and I can't tell a difference from stock either - am, fm or wb. Also works great with the tour-pak ... Simply bends to accommodate!

I'll go with a hidden antenna at some point but this works for now.

A friend of mine added a TourPac to his glide and naturally the stock antenna was way too long. I cut it down with a dremel grinder and reattached the rubber nub with a dab of silicone. Works the same as stock. Cost = $0.00

Thanks WickedRican for this mod! Bought the same Raptor antenna today for my 2010 RG. I had to use one of the adapter sleeves and one of the two sided threaded things in order to fit onto the stock antenna base, but once I found out which set to use, it went on just fine, and looks great!
