All I see is an overpriced ordinary street bike with a couple of small saddlebags, with an odd miniature fairing that likely serves little function hanging way out over the front wheel... that looks like thousands of other Harleys out there.

I've heard that the reason they stopped production for '14, was to figure out a way to hide the radiator and plumbing for the water cooling. They wouldn't sell one, if the hung an ugly exposed radiator out in front of it.,,

Looks very much like the Street Glide, except for the fairing w/two headlights.

That's exactly what it is.

I've always preferred the Road Glide over the Street Glide.

On a related note, Why does Harley put giant fenders on the front of their touring bikes? The Road Glide looks like the smallest one, but it's still too big.

....


The one functional difference between the Road Glide and the Street Glide (indeed I am pretty sure all other HD's) is that the road Glide fairing (and thus headlight[s]) does not turn with the bars. Some riders have a strong preference for one or the other... Doesn't much matter to me.

I prefer the profile of the Street Glide and the front view of the Road Glide. I wonder about the reach to the stereo on the Road Glide, will have to go check it out when in dealers.

They hang them out front on the Street 500 and 750 and the VRSC models and people are buying them.

I like it. We rented a 2013 FLTRU (the dresser Roadglide) and put a few hundred miles on it when I was shopping a touring bike. It was pretty nice, and we enjoyed it, but it had a few glaring faults that were inexcusable. Opted for an R1200RT, instead. The Project Rushmore updates actually address many of the gripes that I had, it would be cool to give the Roadglide another day in court when the Ultra comes out to see how effective the updates are to fixing the faults.

Looks pretty cool to me, anyway. I always liked the sharknose better than the batwing.

It is a long reach, far longer than the Street Glide but can be controlled by the handlebar controls as well as voice commands.
