2020 Street Glide

A few years back, I owned a 2010 Ultra Classic Harley-Davidson which was unfortunately stolen.  I’ve owned several smaller sport bikes since then, but I always wanted to get another big bike.   Last September, I was heading down to ride the Tail of the Dragon with a group of friends and of course along the way we stopped at several Harley-Davidson Dealerships. When we got to Buckeye Harley-Davidson in Dayton Ohio, my buddy suggested I trade in my 2001 GSXR600 for a down payment on a bigger bike. The salesman was more than happy to let me trade up.  So, I signed some papers, and was the new owner of a  2020 Harley-Davidson Street Glide.  The dealership had to perform an inspection before I could take it out of the state, so I didn’t get to ride the dragon tail on it, and I didn’t get to ride it home.  But they did deliver it to me here in Michigan, I didn’t even have to go back and pick it up.  Within 3 hours of them dropping it off, I was already taking it apart to start doing some modifying.  I have blacked out the chrome, vinyl wrapped the bike, upgraded the intake, exhaust, floorboards, put on extended bags, spotlights, different tank dash, handlebars, grips, levers, different crash bar, saddlebag bars, updated speakers, added a sissy bar with my shop logo stitched in, tuner, painted rims, LEDs, speaker lids, luggage rack, and driver back rest. I haven’t even owned it a full year and you wouldn’t recognize it as the same bike I purchased. 

I’ve put a little over 3,000 miles since I purchased it last September, and in August I will be heading back down to the Tail of the Dragon, this time on my Street Glide!
