Today I want to discuss Street Glide versus Road Glide.Most people have a clear favorite between the two bikes and some either love or hate one or the other. I personally like the Street Glide over the Road Glide, but I still enjoy the Road Glide’s style.
I have recently traded in a 2007 Street Glide for my 2011 Road Glide. I have put about 500 miles on the Road Glide since purchase. I had put about 5000 miles on the Street Glide in the year I owned it. In my opinion, I believe the Road Glide offers better wind protection than the Street Glide.
Dan I have both and consider the roadglide a better ride for me but the street glide also has its pros.The road glide at 120 mph is glued to the ground,like its on rails.The street glide is ok at speed but you get a little wiggle from the fairing not being fixed.The street glide has much less wind buffeting and more wind protection.
So many questions… We also wanted to know if folks were more interested in a Street Glide Special or Road Glide Special with the blacked-out trim versus the regular old Street Glide or Road Glide.
Touring Models - Street Glide vs. Road Glide - Good Morning, All. I am visiting from the Dyna section. I love my Street Bob, but think that I am going to make the jump to a touring bike. I had my mind set on a Street Glide and for the last 5 years or so have thought that the Road Glide is a hideous looking bike. Funny...
The only real difference is the fairing. The street glide has the weight of the fairing on the front end while the road glide has the weight of the fairing on the frame. The road glide handles much better.
They hard a Street Glide and a Road Glide in Black Denim. Just the coclor I am looking for. Sat on thrm both liked the feel. But I felt like the Fairing was a mile away on the Road Glide. I think I am going to go down in the next couple of days and so what my biek will get me and get a ride. I also like the fact that the Street Glide had a 2 ...
Even though the road glide is really growing on me, I've got to say street glide, unless maybe you're looking at 2015s, then the new RG is pretty darn awesome. But the street is just the quintessential Harley, you can't go wrong.

0183 32 Touring Models Road King vs Street Glide? Hey y’all, I’m a Sporty owner looking to move up. Aside from the Fairing and seat height, is there any real difference between RK or SG? Do they handle different or ride different? Thanks..
0183 32 Same chassis and bat wing fairing. Street Glide will have a sportier look and feel with a lower profile rear, due to a 1″ shorter shock. The Standard will probably ride a little nicer due to the rear shocks and a cushier seat..
Note Not include in the package Switchback, Road King, Street Glide, Electra Glide and Ultra Limited models need ring to fix headlight firmly..
