What a gem! This customer came to us with the intention of creating the ultimate touring bike, built for comfort and with plenty of power and storage to hit the road days on end. The build below is what we delivered, based on the specifications and parts the customer selected.
We'll start with power.
We gave this 2018 FLTRXS Road Glide Special a Screamin' Eagle Stage 4 engine upgrade for plenty of added power. The FLTRXS for 2018 comes standard with blacked out trim and a blacked-out engine, which we retained on this build. The Bonneville Salt Pearl paint job looks great with the black accents on the engine, exhaust, frame and other trim parts.
Likewise, we added Rinehart Slip-Ons. You'll notice minor chrome details throughout the engine, which are complimented on the pipes as pictured above.
Next up, the full tour pack. The matching detachable tour pack makes this Road Glide Special the ultimate road trip bike with plenty of extra storage space.
It even has a nice, matching black luggage rack on top, ideal for a bedroll or small bag.
Finally, turn signals have been added to the bags for extra lighting. Detachable tour packs like this change things up a bit, so these light bars are both a necessity and a bonus.
Unlike the Road Glide Ultra, which has a fully attached tour pack, the one on this FLTRXS easily detaches when the owner wishes to take a quick jaunt around town.
To match the extra lighting in back, fog lights were added to the front as well, aiding in seeing and being seen. We personally love how it looks on a full bagger like this. For sure a must-have if you plan on taking long trips or will be doing any kind of night riding.
Ape hangers and an extended windshield have been added for rider comfort.
Overall, this bike is a stunning one to behold. It looks great, sounds phenomenal, and is a pleasure to ride! Step back and take a look for yourself:
