My 05 FXDLI after 8 years is still exactly the ride I want. I bought it new on the advice of the salesman after he heard what I wanted to do with a bike. After lots of mods, I wouldn't part with it. I can't think of a thing I would change except the oil once in a while. Congrats on the SG.

beautiful bike! I still love my 02 enough to keep it and my new bike.Only thing with mine,I needed a bigger front fender,because rocks missed it and dented the original tank.

I got the road glide so my wife can ride more with her bad back,though I love riding it as well.

BOUTYM is reading this now saying WTF is this?
Bought an '05 and have never looked back. If there was one complaint it would the lack of aftermarket customizations compared to soft tails. The stuff is out there, but just harder to find. Other than that I wouldn't part with it. I've been considering a Road King Classic for a few years and the wife is saying I should trade the Super Glide, to which I respond NO WAY!!! Short of some financial disaster, I'll be buried with mine. In fact, I might have to consider selling the wife before the bike should the need arise.

Super Glide

Awesome bike, love the color! I bought a '12 FXDC this past March, and have loved every one of the 7400 miles I put on it. I did put Rush Slip On's on the bike, and it gave it a little lower and louder rumble. Not obnoxious loud, but louder just the same.

IMO, I find the stock seat very comfy. Can ride all day long. I did buy the Brawler solo seat for looks, but it's for around town only. Pretty uncomfortable on rides longer than 50-75 miles. I am putting forward controls on over the winter, as the mid controls feel a little cramped on longer rides.

Enjoy the ride. It's an awesome bike. Plenty of power, and corners nicely.

Yes

I bought an '03 Super Glide to replace my wife's Sporty...problem was, I rode it most of the time...Very easy to manuever, fast, and probably the best bang for your bucks in the H-D store..

I just sold 07 super glide custom , it was a nice riding bike. I traded it in on a new blackline month ago. I think soft tails are way better.

May be, but in my case I started with a Softail Heritage, then to a Street Glide, to a Road Glide, then to my Dyna Custom. I'm happiest with the Dyna over the other three.
In my 60's, the Dyna is lighter and easier to handle and very comfortable on the highway with a touring shield.

Enjoy the new bike. A friend just bought a new Slim and loves it. tomp dd50

Why a good "1st" bike? Seems like a good bike, period. Not everyone wants a big touring bike. It's not my first bike but I'll be I'll be happy with it for many years.
