    Looking at doing a Tour Pack and Lowers fairing on a Road Glide towards the end of the year. Apart from Harley genuine, what ones are people running. Haven't found an importer of Advan Black. Most of the bay ones look dodgy.

    In Canberra.
    Looked at the Advan site again, things I want will total to about $2000 without shipping, but if shipping is included that is still a fair chunk of money. Good thing I have time to deal with this, as I don't plan on doing any major rides soon.

    I'd be VERY surprised if you get free shipping to AU from the US....I'd say pretty near impossible.  Shipping is at a premium at present due to the lack of flights around the world, AND it is taking way longer than usual.  You will also get hit with GST plus some import duty (so will be higher than just 10%). Do a comparison with an HD dealer as they just might be comparitive but shipping will be just as long.

    Hi l. Good luck with your project. Have a look on gumtree as I’ve seen original tour paks come up from time to time. 
    Consider a quick release bracket and parcel rack. Then fit a soft bag. I know there are many times when I wish I was able to take away the weight and bulk of my tour Pak. Also if you have the engine guards Already you can get soft Removable vinyl lowers which look good and give leg protection in colder wet weather. I myself not keen on advan as you (to my knowledge) either don’t get or expensive to buy the passenger side / speaker bolsters which is part of ultra experience ;)

    Yeah, the free shipping is a bit odd. Doesn't seem right.
    Have imported stuff before, costs a lot to get it through. Even had to pay a fee to get it though, tariffs, GST, etc.
    I want quick disconnect, so I can swap it around.

    Well, got a quote for the lowers and tour-pak. Genuine is going to be pricey, but not too bad. With my experience with genuine Harley vs some of the aftermarket stuff, leaning towards genuine. Some of the stuff I'll need, I might want to do anyway. Like a hidden antenna.
    Think I might pour a big glass of whiskey to help make the decision. Same technique I did when I decided to drop 10k into my 48 in 2018.

    Not quite the look I'm after for this bike. Vivid black and chrome is the style I want.

    I bought a genuine HD one for my Street Glide so I can turn it into an ultra for bigger hauls. I had it painted and don't regret it. I bought a heap of extras for it including LED genuine lights that wrap around the back. I didn't use them - still in the box if you want to buy them.

    Nice one. Sort of thing I'm planning. What was the rough cost for you? No RG Ultra in Australia.

    Thanks, for the lowers roughly $1000 and the rack to mount the top box $300 and the chopped tour pak with pad around the $1500 if I remember...
