2007 RG build Slow Process

After riding my 2008 Nightster for a year and doing multiple trips with my wifeand I on it I decided its time to get a bagger. After talking with MANY dealers and other bagger owners I decided to go with the Road Glide.

I looked at many different ones but most of them were WAY to high mileage for what I was looking for. After looking at a 2009 RG FLTR and the salesman just ignoring everthing I said I hopped on the net and found this one. Went and looked at it heard it run and struck the deal. They had 16999 on it and. Got them to 13870.

02Heritage, yea I like and have been thinking about painting the inner fairing. Your pic has pushed me to do it. I am worried if I went 18 front and rear that the height of the bike would look goofy. I want to use monotubes up front to drop it and inch when I install the wheels on this.

I finally did the apes and can say the make the biggest of differences. The comfortability is amazing and there's still complete control and handling.

I am only running the 18" on the front. Stayed with the 16 inch in the rear, although I did match. I did not lower the front but sometimes wondered if I should have. I am looking for a rear fender now myself.

Oh ok that's what I'm wanting to do but want to bring it down a little. I like the slammed look on these bikes. I'm looking into adding some type of skirt to lengthen the stock fender since we don't get the fancy schmancy lighted skirt haha

Welp decided it was time to finish the lighting up. I got tired of the fugly red taillight lens sticking out like a sore thumb so I bought the smoked kuryakyn taillight and installed it. ive gotten several compliments on it now and i love it.

So I have the part numbers for all the parts to install the tri bar rear fascia so I'm going to order that soon and get it on. Will make the rear of the bike more attractive along with the 150 rear tire I'm going to do.

Pulled the Inner fairing off and disassembled it to get it cleaned and prepped for paint. Riding seasons done here anyways so what better time.
