I got to ride the CVO version of the RG. Makes this one look basic.

So, with this bore-job, I guess this is an undersquare config? The intro didn't have the bore & stroke numbers.

All Harleys are big bores.

It's a shame that the stock 103 motor doesn't use the flat top pistons and 255 cams that are supplied with the Screamin' Eagle big bore kit.

I didn't notice an awful lot of difference between my bud's 103 inch cop bike and my 96 inch decker, they both pulled pretty strong. None the less, when I wear out my 96 I'll bump it up to 103 and cam it. It's The American Way after all......

Rumors have been flying for several years that this model would appear...glad they finally did it. I'm surprised they didn't just call it the Tour Glide.
