Yes but is a new 114 M8 going to trump a CVO? If I really like it enough then based on the color choices I'd order a 2020 in Scorched Orange/Silver Flux with the blacked out option. I guess they are going to offer that in the 2020 touring models finally.

We'll see what I think.
I'm to the point of looking at a RGU Limited when they come out this fall. New bike, smoother engine and $15k less than a CVO. I can add some goodies and still be under CVO price.

The new RGU Limited sounds nice. I am going to have a hard time trying to decide what to do. I guess if the 114 M8 is all everyone says it is I might decide to go that direction.
Of course sitting here looking at pictures doesn't help much. On looks alone it would be the 2015 CVO hands down. But if the new bikes are as sweet as they say who knows. The fact that you can get the Ultras in a blacked out version for 2020 is a huge plus for me.

But I would have to ride my old bike to SWIX I might end up not wanting to get rid of it. I'm going to ride a M8 Ultra and the CVO tomorrow. Then I'm sure I'll have to come home and think on it.

What did you decide?

I’m curious as I’m on a 12 CVO Road Glide and considering a second bike......16 CVO RGU or 20 RG Limited.

I was between a used 16 CVO Road Glide Ultra and a new 2020 Limited.....went for the Limited....and the new motor is nice. Keeping my '15 CVO Street Glide for now and we will see what I ride more....

MJB what are some of the benefits of the 20RG Limited versus your other bike?

More big picture.....
How is low end torque or 2 up riding compared to your CVO?
what about ride quality?
Sound system?
I hear Navigation is much quicker to respond especially at start up

Thanks for sharing.

Don't have much 2up riding on the new bike yet and only have about 150 miles on it. Ride quality--it takes bumps better than the CVO Street Glide, but I'm guessing it's the 18" front wheel vs the 19" on the CVO. I had the Rockford Fosgate amp and 4 speakers done before it left the dealer...stock sound system sucked like they all do. The CVO has Boom Stage 2 so I was always satisfied with that. As far as the radio goes--way better than the one on the '15. If I keep the '15 CVO I will be upgrading to the newer unit. 

The big thing is the handling of the Road Glide..I took it for a ride on a windy day and couldn't believe how much better it was than the Street Glide. Once I put some more miles on it I can decide if the Street Glide stays or goes.......
