Default My new Harley

After 34 years of riding Harley's, I finally bought a brand new one. I have been leaning towards the geezer glides for a while, and the time seemed right. After searching for leftover 2019 Road Glide Specials, I finally talked to the folks at Harley of Atlanta in Lithia Springs, and they beat everyone hands down on a new 2020. I left home around noon on my 2012 Fatboy, and came home with this. They had it parked outside, gassed up, and ready to go when I got there. The whole transaction took maybe an hour tops. It was a 250 mile round trip, so I was able to get used to the new bike on the way home. Even on Atlanta interstate traffic, the new bike was fantastic. Now if I can only figure out all the nerd features, I will be set!

Congrats, very nice

I went to the HD website and checked out the features. ( Your choice of black looks way better the red on the website) I see it has electronically linked brakes. That will help the folks who are "hesitant" to use the front brake

Thanks man. I just need to get it through break in so I can hammer on it. For the first 500 miles, I have to keep it at 3k rpm and below. Even at that, it would roll 80 mph at that rpm.

Now with all the electronics, you really have to stay within the break in parameters or they can check history and "bust you". " I see on Nov 2 starting at 3:42 pm you held 4000 rpm for three minutes. Warranty has been cancelled"

Pretty sharp looking, like the black, probably rides nice.

I miss my riding, had the grand geezer Ultra, with all the junk I put on it, dressed out at about 950 lbs. It was the traditional heavy hog. Gave up riding in '11, moving up in age, just getting a little unsure of my riding skills and reaction time. I knew if I went down, I wasn't getting back up. What did Dirty Harry say...."A man has to know his limitations!".............

Good luck and stay safe.
