Tomorrow, the wife and I will be heading out on our first road trip on the RGU I bought last fall..
We are traveling from Ky to Ocala FL...and are really stoked about it..

I came from the land of Softail's,I had a Fatboy for years and we made some day trips of 200 miles or so but never did a long one.
Keep us in your prayers..

Enjoy your trip. They are a great bike for long distance trips, no harley is better on the interstate.

I can tell you a 650 mile day on the Road glide is about the same on the body as a 400 mile day on the fatboy:). I still have my fatboy, an 03 I bought new in Oct 02. It has 39K miles on it.

I traded my 09 CVO road glide in on a new CVO road glide in Dec 11. The 09 had 42K miles on it. So you can see they eat the miles well.

The 12 CVO road glide I picked up Dec 2nd has 7500 miles on it, and I have been out of the country over 130 days that I have owned the bike.

Rode from TN to Key West and back the end of march, a great ride:D

That's fantastic. You're going to have a great trip. Enjoy the freedom you're about to experience and just watch. Soon after you get home and rested up you'll start planning your next tour.

Beautiful bike you've got there, too by the way. Best color ever!

Have a great trip, be safe, and stay alert out there. Your wife should be very comfortable on back. Not a single complaint about her back side hurting last year on a 5K mile trip.
