I never thought of Rockford as anything but a competitive low end of anything. I'm sure if hd is using their stuff it's because it's good for them. Just saying.     Stuart

Good catch. No more hyd clutch on anything it appears. It looks like the ext bags only come on the "specials".  Next time I visit the HD shop I will ask.

Rockford is trash. Looks good on the bike but barely a step up from Boom sound wise

The stretch bags help a ton with the look of the bike.  I think it helps make the cvo rg custom special.   I prefer a hydraulic clutch.  Another upgrade that made it special.  I thought it was a great idea when all standard touring bikes went to the hydraulic clutch. Every year it seems less for more to me.  I'll keep my 19 mako.  :nixweiss:
I agree.  My last 7 Harley's have been Hydraulic clutch, this is a big step back in my opinion.

Press release states the CVO RG gets new bags, not stretched.  I think its only the black hole with out stretch bags that paint looks good with out them.  The other two would not.  That said I think all CVO should be stretch bag, including Limiteds, they look better.

Is Rockford an upgrade???  :nixweiss:Stuart

Thats what the launch said an upgrade.  I will be curious to hear the new amp and speakers to see if its any better.  I am thinking it will be very similar to what is in the 19 or 20

Doubt it. Harley just got a lower price contract switching to them.
It all about how much they can pay to the shareholders.

Plus they went from BoomII's (Harmon Kardon) 1 amp per pair of speaks, to Rockford Fosgate's 1 amp for 4 speaks...   More $$$ saved.

The more I think about it, the angrier I feel. Going away from the hydraulic clutch to me is going backwards.  Not fair to the cvo owners. A cable clutch is not an upgrade. Neither is their choice of stereo equipment. Rockford might be a downgrade as to what they had. Want to upgrade?? Call Pete at soundz customz.    Stuart.

I know in  a couple weeks someone on here will be so impressed with the sound but I've had some RF and never had any luck what so ever. It was all crap. So that coupled with lack of Hydraulic clutch makes it undesirable.

I saw two of the CVO Road Glides out in the sun yesterday.  The Black Hole and the Sunset Orange and Sunset Black fade, they look really good. 

Black Hole does not have stretch bags.  It does have flush mount gas cap.  Graphics look very good on it.  Several people looking at it and it sold.

Sunset Orange and Sunset Black Fade has quite a bit of flake in the paint, in the orange, in the silver and in the black, almost a red flake in the black, really looks good.  Orange looks more red than orange in my opinion.  This one does have stretch bags, but has a raised gas cap.  The orange on rocker boxes has flake in it, a nice touch.  This bike also sold.

The Rims look pretty good.  Interesting way of doing spokes.  They look better in person than on the web site.

Yes, but only with FM radio as the source.  Sounded good.  However to really know you would have to have a 18, 19 or 20 CVO road glide parked next to it.  Then use very high bit rate mp3 or such to compare side by side.  I think it may sound a little better.

Key will be will the speakers actually last and not blow all the time like old system.  Nice the amp is not in bag where it can overheat on a hot day when you have bag full of luggage.

Don't know for sure but do not think so.

.

Saw one of these at a local dealer today. As usual it was much better looking in person and the first one I've seen in person. The Bronze accents are everywhere on this one, including all of the Kahuna accessories, from the heated grips to the floor boards, pegs, fork lowers and push rod tubes.

The wheels are really cool up close and I'm thinking that the spokes could all but disappear while going down the road. Could be a really cool effect. A little tough to clean maybe?!?
