    Hi again. Been back to the dealers to check out the wide glide still cant find anything to dislike. On asking the salesman weather it was Aus delivered or a (grey import) it transpires it came from Japan. I asked if there was much difference he reckoned just the rear sprocket apparently this is to do with emission testing! My Q does anyone know if there are any major differences, my mates '03 came from the states and his has a cannister in front of the oil filter, emmisions i presume.
    Thanks again to my researchees!:bigsmiley11:

    Most dissapointed with the trade in value the dealer offered especially considering what they will sell the old bike for. I am seriously considering going new (Harley) as dealers are asking silly prices for 2nd hand ones. I appreciate that others do but i dont like the new wide glide i like more chrome. I like the look of the superglide custom but worry about the mid mounts i am 6' 3". Will i be cramped? Are foreward controls an expensive option? Any comments please.

    I had the dealer install forward controls on my FXDC as part of the deal to sell me the bike. Ask?
