Yeah man, major Congrats! Wish I had a Streetglide to call my own.

My favorite all-around bike, and I get to ride LOTS of Harleys. Once you get the rear-end of that thing straightened out, there just ain't nothin' like a Streetglide.

Again, CONGRATULATIONS!

Ride In Peace, Rick "Rubberdown" Massey

I find it amazing how much dealers are willing to help in the remedying of dissatisfaction of your current ride, and will help you onto a new one.

High speed wobble/sway due to swingarm/frame movement/flex, cured by an anti-sway stabilizer.

Is that a problem on all Street Glides? I just got one a couple of weeks ago but I have only out about 500 miles on it.

Yeah. I have a 2012 SG with just over 700 miles on it now. I haven't experienced anything like that. What do you consider "high speed"?
