    I love the Road Kings' versatility. Dress it up...then take any or all back off to suit the day or your mood etc.. Before I settle on soft lowers or chaps
    Is anyone using the hard lower fairings on any of the Kings ? Vented..painted..speakers? Got Pics ? What would you call it... Electra-King !!

    Not sure I'd like the look of hard lowers on a RK. Of course, not my ride. I ride with a friend that has the soft lowers... looks really good. With that said, there's a company I've seen advertising leather covered hard lowers... that might look pretty awesome on a RK.

    I got a set of the nylon ones from HD per Gliders recomendation, and he was right. great for when the roads are a little wet to when it is cold out. roll them, stick a rubber band around them and throw them in the saddlebags.
    I would rather these than the hard ones, cause where do you put them when you are out on a trip and want more air.
    I love my RK because of the versatility.
    Recently got a Detachable fairing with radio for long highway trips
    detaches in 30 seconds

    I saw a RK with the hard lowers on it and it really looked great. I would prefer the soft lowers myself, they do the job and are easy on and off.
