FLTRI Posted November 22, 2009 Share Posted November 22, 2009 Well Guys, it’s been a fun ride, but I’m parking the RT and going back to Harley Davidson as my primary motorcycle. I’ve owned two Road Glides, a 1999 and a 2003, and I recently picked up a leftover, unsold 2009 R/G at well under MSRP. The deal was just too good to walk away from. Harley Davidson introduced a new frame and suspension system in 09 and it is a huge improvement over the previous touring frame. I didn’t realize how good it is until I was issued a 2009 work bike in June. After riding it at work for close to 9000 miles now, I found myself thoroughly impressed. The things that had annoyed me about the bike were gone… I bought my used 2005 RT about a year and a half ago and put a little over 10,000 miles on it since. It’s a great bike, and does many things well, but for me, the Road Glide is just a better fit. There is nothing wrong with the RT, I just prefer riding the Harley. I wish I could keep both bikes, but financially, it’s just not feasible. Once springtime riding season rolls around, the RT will be for sale. It’s been fun, I learned a lot of things, and I will miss the RT. Ride Safe Dan Link to comment
