    Hi John, I saw that pic and some details on some other sites too. Some were saying it was even up on the moco website temporarily like a deliberate tease/leak. It’s called the fxdls baseline which it was never obviously called before. Which lends itself to a t or touring version. I’d be keen but the pricing of all their bikes in Australia is getting out of hand 

    Agreed re pricing. I'm kind of justifying it using the price of second hand shit atm. Guys advertising their two year old bikes for the same  price as they retailed for when  it came out.

    20yr old dynas at the 20k mark. I'll just stump up extra for the new one with warranty and all the kit I want.

    Whenever I look at those balloon tyres, I think of this:


    Gotta agree there, like most other things tyres have got too fat.

    The only hd that I like with a fat front end has to have the letters FLH in front of it.

    I have 3 bikes all with that front tyre. Deluxe , 48 & rebel. My side car is about to get one to. One day I will have a sportster s and I'd have one of those little cars to if I could. I do only use the std size tyres though. 
    For me I don't get the 21in wheel on the front of a deluxe!

    Hey Mike, I like the road glide fairing on the road glide (you remember I had one) but hoped for a little diff look on the low rider…..maybe it’ll look diff/better in other pics or in the flesh

    Another angle. Not a fan of the look

    Hi Bones, that looks a bit better to me but still not as good as I’d hoped. Maybe it goes too far back and is too squared/edged and less rounded? Plus I don’t like the headlight recessed inside the fairing. Looks better with headlight flush mounted to the surface. A bigger headlight fills the fairing better than the smaller one. And it looks like a bastardised road glide fairing 

    This is the aftermarket fairing kit I’ve been considering for dyna. It doesn’t go as far backwards and appears more rounded in shape to go with the lines of the bike better. Bigger headlight flush mounted to surface. Pod lights provide extra lighting capability and look tough. These aftermarket fxrt fairings aren’t cheap. I’d probably do similar paint with gold pin stripe included. Fairing lowers make a decent difference for wind and weather protection and I’d do that too. I think this is a superior look with greater function too. 

    Acknowledge that looks are subjective and what I like might be as ugly to others. But I like function and having ridden with a good fairing and lowers on a road glide, I know how effective they are. Just need the right size and shape to maintain that function with the right look on the smaller softail/dyna bikes

    Pricing is out of control at present. All sorts of old bikes with high mileage now selling upwards of $20k! It’s kind of like days of old which has its pros and cons. You gonna buy one John if they come out as a modern replica of the fxrt? I think you’re in Canberra or surrounding region too

    Gotta 2003 Soft tail Deuce with 135K hard miles. Engine blowing smoke, uses oil, rattly, tyres shot, wheels not round, brakes 10%, paint blistering and chrome pitted. Small crack in crankcase. Yours for $19,990.  See there are bargains out there.

    I do like the look of that fairing plus agree with the lowers. They really add to the looks and completely change the style. Might have to sell the Night Train and get a Dyna

    Bones you might change your mind when you see how much the newer dynas are selling for. Plus that fairing kit I want will cost over $3k aud landed and then needs painting! Don’t spit your coffee out. 

    But then again probably not too many nightrains about and it wasn’t that long ago (before everyone started blacking out their bikes) that nightrains were highly desirable and collectible. Hopefully still the case for you but probably a good keeper in any event 

    I had a mate that was about to buy a 2022-2015 vrod about 18 months ago. He would have doubled his money had he done that. You can’t get one under $30k now. Unbelievable…..

    Actually I don't think I could part with the Nightrain. Being a non injected 2001 model that's never let me down, she will be a keeper. Maybe sell the Ultra, only problem there is the Missus would most likely hold a pillow over my head during the night.

    I like the carby bikes too….last of an era

    I’ve never had a spouse that was keen to ride on the back regularly (maybe my riding had something to do with it haha).  Always liked the sound of doing that together but sounds like it has some cons too but more pros no doubt.

    Yeah I'm gearing up to buy one, about to sell one of the FXR's to help fund it, especially given the high prices of used bikes and how insanely clean this bike is.

    As you mentioned, to me (and what they're trying to achieve I guess), this is a new version of the FXRT, because everybody putting those fairings on everything in America, and for good reason.

    They are awesome to ride behind, being frame mounted, they dont make the bike feel super heavy, and a lot of people like that style.

    As you mentioned too already, to put an aftermarket fairing and bags on your bike, paint it, etc, you're looking at $5k+ pending route, and the quality will still never be as good as the OEM.


    What brand FXRT fairing kits are you looking at fatbat? I've got one the garage if you wanted to see it in person before dropping cash.

    Everything you’re saying makes perfect sense to me John and those exact things have been on my mind. I’m already reasonably invested in my dyna and until I ride/see one of these new ones it’s hard to know if spending more money on a fairing kit and suspension along other things is worth it 

    Apologies I forgot you were more across fxrt fairings so well. Across all things fxr obviously haha 

    I’ve looked at a few fairing kits but likely to go JD customs if I pull the pin. RWD was up there too. Keen to have a look at yours if ok and would love to see your FXRs. I’ll PM you.  Cheers
