2010 Road Glide Custom

Road tested a 2010 Road Glide Custom today. Handling was good, but the handlebars are kinda weird, kinda stick up at you. Wind buffeting is a lot better than the batwing. but still knocks your helmet around at 60 mph and above, lots of air coming under the fairing, but I think it could be less with a triple tree air baffle. It's a Street Glide with a shark nose, so the ride wasn't touring, very firm. Radio? Hardly you jest...just screeching noise. Ear pods are the only way to go, I'm thinking. My wifey's comments weren't good, but that is because of the crappy seat, and she had to hang on which she hate's to do (no backrest or big floorboards). What are they thinking with this seat for passenger comfort? I think I'm forever a Road King rider.

Heck, that's not much better than my Road King with an iPod hook-up. I have to wear a helmet, I'm down with that.

You've got a good one, not the lowered, sporty-looking one they sell now. I had every intention of getting one when we bought the Limited, but was really put off by what it was missing in the name of style.

I really think you need to revisit the ultra, play with the wings on the fairing, and the lowers, I don't get any buffeting and there isn't much in my head keeping it steady

Clearview, no lowered rear suspension.

Works way better.

My wife would love that seat.

Unfortunately, on a Dyna, I probably couldn't see my bags, much less open them.
