It's easy enough to swap out the rear shocks to get the standard ride height back on the Road Glide custom. Street Glide for that matter, too. New take-off standard height shocks are always available on fleabay or any of the HD forums. If you can get used to the look, don't discount the Road Glide. I'm a big fan of the frame mounted fairing, it takes all the fairing weight (and wind buffeting)off of the forks/handlebars, and puts it right on the frame. Helps with stability on the highway, and helps it steer 'lighter' than what it is....
