Which brand of lowers?

Looking to add some lowers to my new 2018 RG. Looks like my choices are HD, Advanblack, and Hogworkz. Any opinions? Obviously the price point on Advanblack and Hogworkz is far more attractive.

I ponied up for the HD ones. Didn't want to deal with color match or fit. Black quartz. Not vivid black. And I ordered them day 1 so they're covered by my warranty. I think you have 30 days. And the warranty covers them. I dont regret spending the money.

I bought some used Advanblack from a forum member here. Paint match is right on. Quality is ok, vents are a bit hard to open. I paid $160, so i am ok with them.

Believe it or not, I did a search before posting this. My search-fu must be weak today.

I had a cheaper set on my old bike that was black.. This time around I went with the HD ones Primarily for the color match and have no regrets.. You get what you pay for the HD lowers are far better quality... Good luck with your choice..

It was actually on which speaker pods to get, but it quickly turned to lowers.

Looks like the HD lowers are on backorder nationwide.

What I was told. They're not sitting on a shelf waiting to be shipped. You order them and they're sent to whoever Harley used for paint. Then they're sent to you or your dealer. So not sure if it's a real back order. I was told 6 to 8 weeks. I had them in 4.
