    Used the Kuryakyn trunk kit to move it back 2 inches.
    Was wondering with it fully loaded and the passenger back to inches will the handling be any different?
    Have not had time to ride it yet and I and planning a long trip this weekend.

    I added a detachable pack to my Road Glide and moved it back 2" as well and have not noticed any handling differences. Just load heavy stuff in the bags and put lighter stuff in the tour pack.

    Friend of mine did the same thing to his bike and claimed it changed the handling a bit as his wife now sits further back on the bike. My recomendation would be to use caution untill you get familiar with the new handling changes.
    Good luck and be safe.
