My Geezer Glide

I traded in my 09 Road King with 62k miles for a Geezer Glide aka Electra Glide Ultra Limited. The RK was running fine but was starting to feel old and when I saw this 2011 Limited with 7300 miles at the dealer I had to ask about it; two hours later I rode home on my new bike. Haven't really gone anywhere but still managed to ride 1500 miles in the last two weeks, I thought the RK could eat miles but this does it better. I think heat might be a problem compared to the RK with the fixed fairing, lowers and bigger motor? The first bike I'ved owned with a radio and at first it was distracting but I'm starting to really like it. Bike has some nice standard features, ABS, Cruise, heated grips, power point in the top-box, plug in for an MP3 player, CB radio w/intercom and the 103 motor.

Just showing off my new "scooter".

Got mine earlier this year, however mine's an Electra Glide Classic. I can honestly say that it has put the fun back in motorcycling for me.

Thanks, I'm really enjoying this bike and if I can scrape enough money together oneday I would really like to add a second bike to the garage, one that's completely different like a GS.

Great bike
If it still has the cat you're probably toasty near your right ankle, shocking how much heat they put off.

Enjoy it!

Congrats on the new bike. I like the HD touring bikes. I had to smile though, when I read where you wrote you liked your 09 RK, but that it was beginning to feel old. I guess my 2000 SG must be prehistoric

Congrats! Very nice bike. I think there are some deflectors you can get to help keep the heat off. I am sure you will get many enjoyable miles out of this bike.

It wasn't the year that made it feel old lol, it was the miles the bike had more than 62k miles and was feeling like it needed some work to bring it back to that new tight feeling. It was made obvious once I rode the E-Glide that the RK was getting a little worn, the newer bike felt tighter right away. Usually I keep my bikes for a long time like twenty plus years but at the rate I was going the bike would have more than 75k miles in less than five years and would have very little value.

I'm going to find out, haven't felt it on my feet yet, Sidi boots I'm sure are helping keep the heat away.

Defelectors are stock on this bike, hope it helps. Right now it's not a problem, might even be making the riding nicer since it's been chilly.

Thanks for the good wishes, time to go for a ride.

I know what you mean. I was sucked in on a good deal on a ultra, I didn't want a trunk, radio, coffee maker, ect ect ect, but after a good long ride I changed my mind. It DOES add enjoyment and function to my life, go figure?!


PS. nice ride!

For all those Harley haters...

... if any have gotten this far .

The reason the Motor Company sells so many of them is because people really like them.

What's so hard to understand about that???
