Default 2018 Sport Glides

Any Sport Glide owners out there? What are your impressions of your new ride? What mods have you made?

I think there's one or two but they're here infrequently.

They should make a discussion forum for those bikes separate from all the rest. Put it right next to the 500-750 street forum.
Their selling like hotcakes at a NY steakhouse.

I like the Sport Glide, if I was buying right now that would be it.

I bought one and I'm loving the hell out of it. No mods yet besides cosmetic (Defiance collection stuff). After 4 touring bikes, I'm having so much more fun on the new softail.

Curious if you had test ridden other Softails and how the Sport Glide compares to them?


I was originally put off by this bike not being a modernized FXRT, but it's growing on me.....a lot

It's like a poormans bagger. Even though they ain't cheap it's how they come off. Just my 2 cents.

considering i have no interest is a sloppy bagger, it's great in my eyes. And there is no bagger with inverted front end stock.

I’ve ridden all of the ‘18 Softails. The new frame, combined with the new suspension system and the 107, make great bikes. Out of all of them, the Sport Glide and Heritage offer the best ride and handling characteristics, IMO.
