I just doubt it... but then again the RG isn't universally accepted and never has been. But it's sales have finally picked up with the bagger craze...

I guess they are having lots of problems with the fairing design and I cant argue that after trying to get it back on. The Road King Clasic is a shock though.

Its old news, and its true. One issue cited in the dealer memo is that the tooling for the RG fairing has reached the end of its useful life.

Beyond the Road Glide issues, I believe they are (wisely) consolidating their offerings.

It's a continued trial to consolidate. It is needed to control costs..
