Owned one for fours and put 62k miles on my 09 Road King and now riding I'm riding an Electra Glide. The RK was/is a great bike, has the touring frame minus all the heavy stuff, great touring bike that can be taken down to a "Bar Hopper". I like the Glide but to me the RK is a nicer all around bike, the RK is a blank canvas that can me taylored to your liking. I had ABS, cruise control, security package, standard cast wheels for the FLHR, I had a few problems that was taken care of with the warranty (nothing major), got 40 somthing MPG, high speed handling was ok not great (not speed limit speed but 20-30 over) I would experince some wobble from time to to time. The windshield worked well, but the Batwing Fairing works better, I never felt the need to change the seat or handbars the bike was comfortable for me, I changed the windshield to a LRS shield, added highway pegs and a Tour-Pac for touring. I wouldn't have even thought of trading it in if not for the miles and if I could afford to keep two bikes I would have kept it.
In 2009 I rode 18,589 miles on an island that's 72 miles long. That's 50 miles a day everyday for 365 days. I think I'll go home now. 97k miles and still riding my YouTube Channel
