handlebar swap
By kcm(Owner), Dec. 21, 2008
Anyone who has a problem with the ride position on the 2009 RK can change the bars to the heritage bars. I did and this made a huge difference. You now have the same seating as the heritage(I agree is superior) and the mechanical benefits of the new RK...2009 RK handles loke no other cruiser I hav... Read Full Review

As Stable as they come!
By BLB(Owner), Oct. 16, 2008
Fifth bike and third HD. I went from a sportster, to an FXDX (2003) and now to the Road King (2009).

I went from a 2006 Wide Glide to the 2009 Road King. The difference is astounding. The Road King is stable yet more responsive, especially at low speed, then the much lighter Glide. Riding comfort, ride quality and overall handling are amazing for a bike of this size and weight. I put V&H sl... Read Full Review

I have to say that if you cant see the value and quality of the Harley Davidson Road King "that is made in our own country and by our American brothers and sisters", you need to test ride on... Read Full Review
