Congrats! I've become used to not having a heel shifter, I don't miss it anymore.Just had a test ride on the Roadmaster today in Madison, WI and then ordered one, red & cream. Trading in my 06' Harley CVO Ultra.
The roadmaster rode beautifully, smooth and handled well like my CVO and didn't shake at stops. Lots of torque too!! Plus that seat was a dream, very comfortable.
I did order the heel toe shifter though due to foot problems and highway pegs plus driver backrest because of my bad back.
Can't wait to get it!!
First of all it is heavy. You really feel it taking it off the stand and a bit in the corners, but other than that it is well balanced with a low center of gravity, not top heavy. Like all tourers I expect if you load up the trunk you'd feel it more. The trunk is a quick release, so you can turn into a Chieftain (sort of) in a few seconds, and you can tuck away the trunk wires into a little pouch on the back seat.PackRat. Tell us your demo experience on the Roadmaster? Top heavy, balanced, smooth, what??? dying to hear what you got to say. I've put my deposit on a red-cream on in Indianapolis, but I haven't had a chance to ride one. I did ride the '14 Chieftain though and loved it.
There's a lot of issues on the Indian website with compatibility and customization. It seems to be a work in progress. I"m sure the lever grips are fine between the two.I am waiting on my red one in September. I was going to order the tan leather lever grips but the Indian site says will not fit 2015 Roadmaster. I can't see Roadmaster/Chieftain levers being different, Nor 2014/2015 levers. Surely a mistake? Can anyone confirm one way or another? I am fixin to order them anyway.
