    Hello all,
    I'm a long time rider (since 1986), but new to HD. I've previously owned a Moto Guzzi and several Japanese bikes of various sizes. 

    Just ordered a Sport Glide in Twisted Cherry. Can't wait to get back in the saddle again after 4 years going without.

    Welcome... If I wasn't looking at a full touring bike,, the Sports Glide would be high on the list of contenders …. Cheers..

    Just came from Harley, gotta admit the Sportglide looks like a great all rounder.
    That new Fatbob’s somewhat polarising though.

    As promised, photos! Dealer forgot to order the heatshield for the muffler, so that's coming at the first service, along with the backrest and rackHD Forums Australia - 69733969_10159036562103128_4007335513735299072_o.jpg

    If I ever get another bike and they put a 114 in those that will be it, pipe, cam, tune and ride, they handle just fine, seats comfortable, bags and fairing come off and go on in seconds, forwards already there, exterior rear shock adjustment for the missus or gear, best bang for buck they make in my very humble opinion.

    It has the SE muffler as part of the Stage 1 kit I ordered it with. It's supposed to have a heat shield, which will be fitted at the first service.

    At the same time they're going to fit the rack and backrest, which could be fitted at purchase because the docking spools are out of stock.

    There were rumours that the 2020 version would have a 114 available. HD brought out the Lowrider S instead. 

    To be honest, even though it still has odometer in two digits, the performance is great even with the 107.
