Have ridden both and I have an Electra. Never noticed any real difference in handling. I like both set ups.

I looked on the internet for second hand 2009 RG's here in Belgium and Holland but all CVO's starting from 25.500€

Yup. I've spent the money now anyway, but reasonably priced RG's don't seem to exist in Europe.

You should have gotten it. And I love all the comments by the V-Rod elitists about the "slow" Road Glides. Absolutely laughable. Gazoo and I took a couple of V-Rodders on a long ride in Sturgis to Devil's Tower while in Sturgis, and you should have seen them struggling to keep up with our overweight slugs.

I just don't understand it. I have a big twin, I have a V-rod. With the V-Rod, i go riding with people riding what I think of as "normal" bikes, and I can mostly keep up, so long as no-one goes mental on things like RSVs. On the single occasion I took a big twin (because everything else was off the road), everyone streamed past me and off into the distance. No problem, stopped me having to buy a round

But no way could I stay with myself on a V-Rod if I were on a big twin. Just no way.

I quite fancy an F6B now, but the UK price is stupid (like the RG).

That F6B is really nice, beginning to see quite a few around these parts.

Honda obviously don't expect it to go in Europe, and have imported a few at an insane markup.

I'm hoping they have so over-priced it nobody will even notice it exists and they have to sell them in the end for peanuts. I doubt it, but hey, I can hope!

LLouis interestingly they have brought the Road Glide out in OZ last year and it didnt sell they couldnt give them away they street glide was killing it. I dont understand it I like the look of the road glide but they didnt catch on over here so HD Australia have dropped them from their line up. They are a good bike to mod look tough as anything....
