Welcome to the forum!

I owned a Road King I bought new in 1996. Rode it around Europe for a few years then brought it stateside and had it a few more years. I still think it is one of Harley's best bikes.

Your Trophy will be a fine machine! Probably just begging for a crosscountry ride...

Cheers!

Welcome. You gotta love the new Trophy. I look for reasons to ride mine.
How would you characterize the switch? What is your perspective on the Road King compared to the Trophy?

I couldn't find a position on the HArley where i wasn't getting blurry vision going 70.
I tried 3 different windsdcreens. also had back issues, which i still have right now. I also realized i valued good handling over good sound.
