Thermodyne inspired me to also share my new purchase.

I looked very hard at the Road Glide but decided it was just not comfortable for me. I'm a short guy and the windshield was too far away and it just felt bigger.

I pulled the trigger on a Street Glide Special with the 114. I am pretty excited to get it on the road when the weather cooperates (I am not very tough)

That is a good picture. Idk how to do all this stuff either. It was easier with my old phone. This new phone is too damn smart for me and now I have to size my pics and shiitt. Still haven't figured out how to create a thread.

Anyways there must be a 40° day sometime and then you have to post on how you like it etc. especially the faring. I bought a RK and I want your reviews of it please. I also bought a tour trunk which I am having 2nd thoughts about cuz the thing must weigh 40lbs.with the hardware and speakers.

My last bike was a 13 street glide so I'm familiar with the bike.. how it handles.. etc.

This one has:
-Bigger motor (114 vs 103)
-Antilock Brembo brakes
-Linked Brakes (anxious to see if this is just BS)
-GPS (I use this all the time in my auto's, never had it on a bike before)
-No rear air suspension. Wasn't a big fan of the air.. bled off all the time

Enjoy your Road King. If I was taller I would consider one of those

I doubt that I am much taller than you as mine has been lowered front and rear. I had a faring on a BMW and a GW. A faring is definitely better when it is cold. You probably have a shorter riding season than I do. Today it is 72 as I sit and post on the back porch.

Get the Fork Fangs, and the engine guard covers, and you will greatly extend your riding season!
