2019 Harley Davidson Road Glide Special - My first bike install! Full Rockford Fosgate system install!

Recommended Posts

So if you know me, you know i love to do cool stuff for my friends, family and even people i don't know.  When i see the right opportunity and just the right situation unfolding, i usually decide what i am going to do about it in my mind.  I may or may not say or do anything but sometimes, i just can't resist.  I know my boy Trino who i have known for about 35 years (from our hood) has a nice bike.  I follow him on instagram and seen him always out riding with the boys.  One day after taking a trip out to Rockford Fosgate (back in June) and seeing all the big things they are doing in the Harley world, a light bulb in my head went off.  I gave Trino a call while i was still out there and asked what he had (because i don't know much about Harley's).  After speaking with my guys at RF, i decided that this might be my first ever bike install.  I asked him (Trino) if he was interested in a free upgrade, so long as i can make a YT video of the install (and learn from it) and he said HELL YA!  A month or so later after the NEWEST version was released, i received the package with everything i needed inside of it.  I called my main man Greg Cobbs at Rockford to ask a few questions about the install and he totally volunteered to fly out and help me with it! It isn't really that complicated of an install but you do have to take the bike apart, which i have never done before.  So i was happy to have him out to give me a hand (actually it was me giving him a hand) :D  

 

When i called him and asked if he was ready, he said "bro, my bike is an 18 and i the '19's are about to go on sale, i think i'm gonna get that so we can do this all the way NICE".  2 days later, he got the BRAND NEW 2019 Road Glide Special.  He had a few parts put on it (pipe, intake etc) and we were ready to go.  Greg flew in as promised and today, we got it done!  I will be posting video's of the install (before and after) soon, but for now, here is a few pics.  And YES, i did help. He showed me what to do and i did it. Including cutting up the rear bags for the by-nines :D  Check out the pics below - YT video in a few days

Thanks again Greg and of course everyone at Rockford Fosgate :)  What a serious treat it was to have someone of his status in the audio world come down and personally teach me how to do this.  It came out amazing!  I know he loves it!  I can't wait to upload the video.  I will edit it this weekend (if i get a chance) but regardless it will be up soon. Enjoy Trino brotha!! It pays to be in the 35 year club and always was a cool mothaf##ka to me.  I hope you have many years of jamming up the blvd!

It’s pretty amazing the amount of “you can’t really fuck this up” Rockford put into that system. I should have been for more nervous about cutting my bag lids than I was. And the video doesn’t do the sound improvement any justice, at all.
