Funny how I had a 2015 Road Glide previously. Lol

I want to replace my pegs with floorboards next.
Is there anyone here interested in trading your boards setup with my peg setup??
What do you think of that fairing? Quality....wind buffet...etc.

oh, Iím very happy with the fairing.
Quality is excellent.
I was a little concerned if itís mounted secure enough, but it was unnecessary worries...
its very sturdy.

Buffeting: this gives me one of the best wind protections of all fairing I have experienced.
(HDís batwing and shark nose)
the little pieces that cover the bracket on each lower side of the fairing do s great job pushing the air to the side which cuts the air gushing up around the tank.
In my case, I have the factory lowers on, so I feel very little (if any) air coming up around the gas tank.
In short: itís at least as good as HD shark nose/ batwing. I, personally think itís the best of the 3 fairing....

Leather bibs and AC insert I did after trying to teach myself leather working, all other parts added by me, but are off the shelf. Seat is a HD PnA, pipes are Rineharts, bike is an '18.
