Okay, I will break the ice for February BOTM.
I picked up my 2018 Road Glide Special in Bonneville Salt Pearl the day it hit the showroom floor. Immediately fell in love with the color and the blacked out looks. This was my 12th Harley and my 3rd Road Glide. I got hooked on the road glides in 2009, Bought a 2009, traded it for a 2012 and then patiently waited for a new color to come out that called to me. This one was it. I have never been one to hold on to bikes to long, but I decided that with this one I would make it mine. Over the past 4 1/2 years I have systematically went through it and did what I wanted. It is the best full blown touring bike for my wife and I to travel on and in an instant it can be a bar hopper to go get crazy with the boys. It has seen both coasts, been to Sturgis a few times and ran the Dragon more than once and will continue to be my daily driver.

Mods I have done:
Suspension- Full Ohlins front and rear
Native Rush Fat Tire Kit with single rotor
Lights- Full CD front and rear with break strobe
Seat- C&C Two piece custom with matching tour pack and sissy bar in BMW Carbon fiber and Black Ostrich
Bars- F47 12"
Grips- Avon Custom Cushion
Crashbars- F47 front and rear
Windshield- 12" Klockworks SportFlair
Motor- 124" FM Big Bore kit, 10.75 compression with CP pistons, adjustable pushrods, S&S oil pump, cam plate, tappet cuffs,head bolts, 55mm ported throttle body. Woods performance Alpha series lifter and 22XE cam
Clutch- AIM SDP with variable pressure plate and springs.
Tuner- Powervision tuned by Jamie at FM- 134hp/145 tq
Exhaust- Rhinehart head pipe with FM Jackpot Mufflers
Audio- Sound Digital SD 400x4, Arc Audio DSP, PRV Midranges and Supertweeters
Air Intake- Trask Assault
Other add ons- Numerous Dunphy cycle custom touches, Blacked out bezel trim, powdercoated billet oil cooler cover, Defiance series running boards front and rear, detachable tour pack, Siouxicide Choppers 16' sissy bar, Detroit Chopper tank emblems.....a bunch mor that I have probably forgotten.

I built it to be bulletproof, look good, and sound good! I can check those boxes. This one will be hard to get rid of if and when the time comes. Thanks for looking.

New Shark owner. I FINALLY got my Harley!!! My name is Marlowe Williams originally from S. Carolina, currently residing in Louisville, Kentucky as a Performance & Training Manager for Michter's Distillery.

I recently purchased (a week ago), a 2022 Road Glide 107, from Bluegrass Harley Davidson. I've owned crotch rockets since I was 15yr old, in fact I had the very first Ninja when it came out. I purchased a 2007 Boulevard c50 800 about 3 years ago and it took a little getting adjusted to sitting up. After a while, I slowly began to see other cruisers and I wanted something more.

After test riding the different styles, I decided on the Road Glide. I grew up in the 70s & 80s, during the times of stretched big body vehicles, and I like the stretched look and feel of the Road Glide. Not to mention, the Shark Nose, every motorcycle manufacturer has a Bat Wing, but no one has the unique eye-catching retro look of a Shark Nose. I didn't choose the color it chose me. I like the acknowledgement of other riders especially from Harley riders, it's like we've known one another for years. I've carried full conversations at traffic lights from fellow riders and people in their cars.

Right now, I'm getting 14" handlebars, new grips, & a heel shifter. In the future, I will be getting the chopped touring package. I cannot tell you what kind they all are, I haven't learned the lingo just yet, but I will. I'm just ready to put some miles on it this summer.
