My new Road Glide got here a week early!!! Picked it up today and now I'm stuck at work till 9pm PST. It rides awesome, I can't wait to get home tonight and ad some goodies to it.  :drummer:
I must say it seems much more responsive bone stock than my 2011 did with the 110 tc and sounds better stock as well, but of course all of that will change with time (and money).

I'll get some pic's out within the next couple of days. We had a little break in the weather today fortunately but it looks like its back to the wet stuff tomorrow.  :-\

Congratulations on getting your new bike.  We need pictures.

The M8 117 is definitely more responsive and has more torque lower in the RPM range then the 110.  I had several 110 bikes.  This 117 bone stock is as strong if not stronger than the 110 with a head pipe, mufflers and tune.

Hi everyone, it's still too ugly weather wise here to get any decent photos but here's one from inside my garage. I've added the Freedom Shields 15" Sport Touring windshield, CVO riders backrest, matching Defiance pass footboards, moved passenger pegs up front for highway pegs, 4 point docking hardware, triple tree air deflector, DC plug for Gerbing heated gear, removed the fugly reflectors, took off the mid frame heat deflectors and of coarse transferred my anti gremlin bell for good luck.

It just stopped raining so I'll go out for a ride this afternoon and enjoy today's high temperature. A balmy 43 degrees!

Looking nice, now how about a ride report?  Why did you remove the mid frame heat deflectors?

Hi guys, as much as I wanted to get out there for a ride yesterday it just kept raining off and on. Finally about 4:30 I was able to go for a short ride. Although I'm still getting things dialed in I love this bike. When I ran out of daylight on my way back I was disappointed to find that the headlights didn't work worth a damn. They needed to be adjusted waaay up. When I returned home my Seahawks game was just starting on Monday Night Football so I waited until this morning to address the issue. I must have turned the adjustment bolt a couple of hundred times (turning righty tighty) until it would adjust no more. The bolt kept turning but nothing was happening and the lights appeared to need to come up another 10" or so!?!
Anyway I got out today for a real nice 150 mile ride.

Then we stopped for lunch at the world famous Toby's Tavern in Coupeville Wa. on Whidbey Isl.  They have the best seafood and prepare mussels all kinds of different ways.

So from Toby's we headed north up Whidbey toward the Deception Pass Bridge which connects the island to the mainland all the while getting use to the new CVO. Took some twisties and dealt with good old normal traffic while riding to the next destination. I must say going over bridges that throw a bit of wind your way the bike handled every aspect just friggin awesome. Because the fairings are so different between the bat and shark and the shark fairing being physically lower at the top it gives the feeling that you are sitting more on the bike than in the bike compared to my Street Glide. Obviously that is not the case since the frames are the same but that was one of my first impressions.
As stated by someone else in another thread I will need to watch my speed as it does feel like I'm going slower than I am because of the wind bubble this thing creates! It's awesome.

The final stop of the day was at one my favorite local burger joints with real ice cream shakes called Burger Master, they are a small chain of drive in's up here in the NW. I took this shot of the menu through my windshield. It's one of those car hop drive in's. Can you see the temperature on my dash? The 44 degrees was under their heat lamps.  :'(   Dang, need this one fixed too.

Dealer should have adjusted that during PDI.  Every road glide I have ever bought has had the headlights adjusted low.  Always have to take them back for dealer to adjust.  I could but its there job.

Sorry Dave I missed this initially. I really don't like the looks of them and I really like the open look of the engine with those cool new heads and rocker boxes exposed. I never had them on my 2011 which supposedly ran way hotter than these M8's so I just figured I would remove them. I actually cheated and asked the dealer not to install them during the PDI process.

As for the headlights I'll head up to the dealer this week, it also appears that they forgot to plug in my radio antenna to the head unit. I know that these hidden antennas are not the best but I have zero reception.
