Day late and a dollar short my friend........

This topic has been allover this forum for weeks......

But yes, that's the rumor, no more "basic" road glide.

Welcome to the forum 1953riderforlife...

Yes, it looks like the Road Glide is gone for '10, but rumor has it that it may be replaced by something along the lines of an "Ultra Glide"... we'll all know in July when the new lineup is announced. Some other popular bikes like the Night Train and Dyna Low Rider are also rumored to be getting the axe.

Thanks for the welcome. I've had my Road Glide about a year. My favorie bike so far and hate to see it go but I expect to keep riding them anyway.

Welcome aboard guys. I'm sure something will be out to replace it as it is kind of popular.

Wow! I didn't hear about this either. I have always had a strange fascination with this bike. At first, I didn't like the look of the bike. The more I have seen on the road, and the reviews I have read, I am really starting to understand the appeal of it. If it goes........it would be cool to have one.....an original classic.

I used to feel the same way. They grew on me until I had to have one. Now I have it I don't want to ride anything else.
