 Congrats on the new ride. I presently have a Road Glide Ultra myself. If you interested in doing pipes & all you really need to check out Full Moto. Good people!

So you traded/sold the Street Glide? Seems to be more people going to the shark nose from the batwing and a reason why I need to spend more time on a RG to check it out. I like the batwing dash layout but do need to look into more time on a RG. Would like to see a pic if you have time.

I've been hearing good info about  fuelmotousa and the TW-7H cam produces some good power. Toss up between the 7H and Andrews.


Ken, thanks for the photo. Looks great.

Enjoy the HD but...when going over your pro&con list...my Raider is NOWHERE near 4200 at 85mph....3400 tops...4200 in 4th gear maybe. I set my cruise at 80mph on way to work and it's at 3100...just sayin.

Very interesting write-up.  I can honestly say that all of your cons against the HD are very important to me and all of the pros for the HD really don't matter to me.  I don't want to ride 270 miles between stops; I don't like to ride 85mph and love the feel, tone and torque of the Raider at 70mph; I like the handling of the Raider in the twisties as I don't like a bike to be too quick to respond (would like a touch more ground clearance though); love my accessories (I made it my own).

If you're happy though, I'm happy for you and after your write-up, I'm even more convinced the Raider is the sled for me. Thanks.

Ken- A Road Glide wouldn't be my choice, but if you're happy, that's all that matters.  Enjoy and ride safe!!!

Ditto Ares but hoping you enjoy the long rides on your Road Glide Ken!  Appreciate you taking the time to share your pros and cons.
