Can anyone help me understand if I should pick red or smoked lenses for my road glide ultra.

I have the smoked tour pak rack lens, and I have the tour pak side lenses and tribar light in smoked, but I’ll resell these or maybe some type of combination looks good? I always went smoked, but I’ve never had a red bike and now I’m having second thoughts. Before I start replacing turn signals and the brake lights I should make up my mind lol.

take note all the bag chrome is coming off in favor of a black saddle bag guard.

Smokem if you have them, and if not gettum.

Haha! Now the million dollar question, keep the tour pack led red? It’s $500 for smoked Harley one and CD doesn’t make them for the older bikes.

Do you really need the red? If not, wrap it! I did the same on one of my cages and it looks real nice. They also make spray tint if you wanted to try that.

I don’t need the red, never thought of spray tint or wrapping it. Have you seen any examples?

Here is what I did on the back of my G550 - I wrapped the reflectors (bottom of bumper) and backup lights in the center of the taillights (after pic was taken). Very easy! I made a cardboard template and traced it onto the gloss black film, which you can get from APA for $1 each (4x8" samples).

I prefer smoked lenses as well.

It all boils down to personal choice, but since you're looking for input I think smoked is the way to go. I've been adding lights and replacing lenses as time and budget permits.

I’m not automatically all-in on smoke colored lenses every time, but still think they’re a good look depending on the exact bike and owner’s preference. The look is a bit more low profile and sleek. I went with them on our latest ride which is a 2020 RGL custom:

Smoked for the win! I did front & rear turn signals and the tail lamp on my '02 Electra Glide, and the bike was dark Red, and it looked Awesome. I did the LED's with smoked lenses and the brightness was incredible but the best thing was when you applied the brakes. No way you couldn't be seen...👍
As you may have guessed, this was my Halloween decorated Harley! Lol.

Beautiful bike! The dark grays, blacks, and dark blues smoked lenses are an easy decision. This red makes it interesting.

You guys are awesome!! I really like the earlier idea of painting the housing. That seems like it would really clean things up. Are there any order ones 9-13 that have had this done?

I love that blue Ford ran! Eventually took the bumper off, too. Looks a lot cleaner, imo
Wow much better without! I love the way taking the tour packs off make these bikes look 100% bad-ass. I love the Blue, worked for Ford since 1990, and that two-tone Grey looks hella sweet, beautiful scoot Mhenry1282 you should be proud Sir. Happy Thanksgiving........Kevin.

Thanks, I loved that bike. 3 years, almost to the day, and 40k miles with no issues. Just traded it in on a rgs almost 2 months ago.
