OK...I have posted a couple of threads on both the crappy rental RGS ride with regards to the wind flow and lack of a cool touring windshield, and the GPS system.

So my local dealer mounted a Klock windshield for me, and with that test ride....all was GREAT.

I then ventured into another dealer in Central FL last weekend, and started asking about my GPS issues, and its just say...it's amazing what you can discover about a product, when the sales staff employs someone who really knows the product. So my GPS concerns have also been addressed, and it has me actually wanting a new RGS.

Then....the great salesman screwed something up for me!! He disclosed to me the new color options coming in 2016, and I want the new metallic black paint they have in the 2016 color book!!!! But will have to wait until sometime in August for the 16's to become available.

So thanks to all who took the time to post replies and your experiences, as much of what was viewed help me to make this decision to go for it.

I guess the good thing about the months I have to wait, is I can take my time in picking out the additional parts I am going to include in my purchase, so to have the added warranty on all the extras (wheels, rear trunk, sound system add-on's(side bag speaker lids, amp, better frt fairing speakers), exhaust, intake, foot boards, highway pegs, and god only knows what else).

I'll probably post another thread here and there, with the occasional questions or search for experienced opinions, and look forward to what insight will come from this forum.

August will be here before you know. You do still have a bike for the summer, right?

Oh yeah. I have both my 11' Street Glide and a BMW K1600, so jumping onto a bike for necessary sessions of therapy and enjoyment won't be a problem until then.

I can understand waiting on a color you like better. I LOVED my 2012 Road Glide but I've got to say this 2015 is amazing. Even the wife likes it better for the ride and airflow around her. My biggest learning curve has been in the audio dept. My V&H pipes exited the rear of the last bike. On this bike I chose the Python Rayzer pipes that exit on the side and it is much louder than I was used to. I like the noise, but I find that I have to make my stereo a lot louder to clearly hear it.

Good luck when you get the new scoot. I'm confident you will love the new Glide.

....... Pikes Peak Harley has been having InfoTainment workshops @ the dealership at least once a month lately.
.. Some dealers do understand that the more a customer knows about the product, the better

.Then....the great salesman disclosed to me the new color options coming in 2016, and I want the new metallic black paint .
...... 19 weeks to the Dealer meeting .... and i'm w/ya on next yrs hard candy colors

Sorry, I have ridden them, they are great but, I love my '05. I can't buy into the hype.
And what's with putting a Sportster front tire on a Road Glide and a Road Glide Front tire on a Sportster?

Sounds like you may be one of the first forum members with a new '2016'! Can we look forward to a detailed 1st thousand mile review? I would like to read your review later this summer.
