Wow, I can't find anything about this water-cooled bit on the Harley site. Also can't find a radiator on these things. More investigation needed!

I do like that they supposedly made their saddlebags accessible with one hand now.

I like the Street Glide. Other stuff looks nice. I think they did a nice job for 14. Now there are truly 3 American Bike manufacturers to choose from.

Blame it on me

2013 Vision Sunset Red
2006 Jackpot sold
2006 Vrod Screaming Eagle (sold)

they did some great re-designs that Victory and Indian made them do.
The nice thing I see is that now Victory will have to step up and do more.

I am finding more to like. They added a nice vent to the bat wing. Still not sure I'd want that big thing hanging on the forks, but I bet the wind management is really nice.

From what I can gather the liquid cooling is limited to exhaust side of the head.

Sounds like Harley has responded to customer input and is making some big changes. Wonder what other changes have been made that they aren't talking about? Can't wait to see how it all shakes out.

Saddlebag, Look at the gallery of pictures on that link. You an see the radiators built into the hard lowers.

I saw what appeared to be vent covers. They wouldn't really blow hot radiator exhausts on a rider's shins right?

Anyway, the Road King doesn't have lowers so I guess that one doesn't get the water cooling?

There site is down due to capacity problems. Apparently, we've all found out now!

From my understanding of what I read, the "Twin-Cool" motor is only on certain models in their new Project Rushmore line. Not all bikes have it yet.

They show the Road King in the Rushmore lineup video. Maybe they integrated those radiators in the floorboards where they can double as foot warmers?
