Decided last summer I was ready to upgrade to a touring model, so I traded my '05 FXSTI for a lightly used '12 FLHX becuase I had wanted one for a few years. Bought it at the beginning of August last year (right before the '15 Roadglides debuted). Was a little sad but loved the new ride.

Logged almost 10k miles until I hit an oil trail on a banked cloverleaf last week. Rear tire slid out and slid through a lowsided until the tires caught and ended in a high side. I was very lucky and was able to walk away with only a couple small patches of road rash and a few sore muscles. Did a touch over 12k in damages to the FLHX, which insurance has deemed a total loss.

So... I decided I should test ride the new Roadglide and see what all the fuss was about. Bad idea on my part. Now for my insurance to pay me out so I can consummate the sale on my '15 Roadglide in vivid black with ABS and security.

I guess this is hello. Never thought I'd be on a Roadglide, but DAMN what a ride.

Thanks guys! I'm hoping to have the new glide by middle of next week and be back on two wheels. This two weeks has been miserable, I didn't even take that much of a break this winter. Hope you all are out enjoying the wind for me!
