The 1 or 2 times i’ve Ridden a road king were not great for me, for some reason the air cleaner held my knee way out and because it was against my knee I had all the engine vibrations transferred into my leg, also both had floor boards that were to far forward for me to be comfy, did not make me smile at all. As far as performance goes it wasn’t bad but it certainly wasn’t an fjr............ well maybe. If it was root beer brown !
Funny thing about it is that I don’t remember any of the Electra-glides that i’ve ridden having the air cleaner against my knee thing, but i’d Think that the e-glide and r-king use the components in that regard. No concern as I see no Harley’s in my future,,,, now an indian ftr May be a different story.

Itís a great gig and I work with a great bunch of people. Just remember if itís fun all the time they donít give you a paycheck for it. Some bikes and the way some bikes are modified itís just terrible to get on them. Picture a slammed Street Glide with ape hangers and one front disc removed so the 21Ē front wheel looks cool, not a fun ride. Or pulling your helmet on and off 20 times in 3 hours when itís 89 and humid. But overall it is a great gig and Iím lucky to have it.
Why do I love RoadKings and not want to own one? The handling vibration and performance limits the bike have( braking, acceleration) bring me back to my senses after about 2 miles.

Good input, thanks guys.
Never hurts to hear what others with experience have to say.
Donk, nice side job you have ...

My first long road trip right after I bought my FJR, I met a couple of Harley riders who asked what year was my BMW?
I keep promising to have some roundels with "YMW" made to replace the crossed tuning forks on the side of the gas tank.

Did a few reading online about the STP engine treatment and saw a few good reviews...but I want to be double sure and ask a few people with long time experience(s) to plz kind suggest and advice.
Here is the particular STP he was advising I use...
I intend to start my tour on Thursday and intend to cover a total distance of over 3,000km in total.
Thank you all...

|rbentnail||I too have always been partial to the Road Kings. Nearly bought one back in '06. In fact that bike was the first I'd seen with Black Cherry paint. Fell in love immediately. Then out comes the '07 FJR and that was that.|
