Rated 5 out of 5 by Shortbus No more running into the antenna
My wife was constantly running into the long stock antenna on my 2016 Road Glide Ultra and I was also. The shorty antenna works just as well as the long one and no more running into the antenna every time I walked around the bike

I purchased this along with the shorty CB antenna and got exactly the look and performance I expected. High quality product that was better than expected.

Put this on my FLHTCU-1. No denigration of reception. My wife and I do a lot of local riding. On longer trips the CD player takes over. Some of the areas around us are mountainous but have not had any issues with reception.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bill505 Works for Me
I bought the Shorty Antenna because I liked the looked on another FLHXS I'd seen. I read the reviews about the diminished reception, but since I do most of my riding local in the DC area, and then use my iPhone or iPod attached to the Boom Audio on longer highway trips, I wasn't too concerned.
Thus far (5 months) I haven't encountered any degradation in radio reception (again though, I mostly ride local in the Washington DC area) so for me it appears to be a perfect fit. I like the shorter and more rigid appearance; to me it compliments the stripped down appearance of a Street Glide over say her bigger touring sisters with tour pack-mounted antenna.
If you're looking to streamline your bike and aren't concerned about possibly losing a little long-range reception, I'd recommend the shorty.
