Eng size: 107"
Transmission(5sp, 6sp etc): 5sp
Pipes: D&D Fat Cat with QB Baffle
Seat: Danny Gray Weekender
Wheels: RC Component Czar 21/18
Accessories: R&R heads, roller rockers and 615 cam-Bob Woods compression release-Mikuni Polished 42mm Carb -Feuling Super Pump-Rivera Pro Clutch-Performance Machine 6 piston calipers-Autometer Speedo/Tach combo-Arlen Ness velocity stack,oil pressure gauge,levers, grips,mirrors, shifter and brake pedal-RWD license plate/brake light/turn signals-Arnott Aldan air suspension-Progressive front lowerings springs-TWR stablizer

So my bike has 85,000 miles on it now. I had the 107 kit installed 5,000 miles ago and it didn't really need it yet but I just wanted more power. The bike has 117 TQ and 110 HP

This is the stock color (Aztec Orange Pearl) which was available for 2 years. People always think my bike is newer than it is. In fact they never believe me when I tell them how many miles it has. It has been a fun project so far and I'm not done yet. Next on the list will be a RWD stretched tank, stretched rear fender and Klockwerks wrapper front fender and then I will be done. At least that is what I'm telling my wife. And yes I will be sticking with the stock color. I am really trying to keep the bike clean, simple and classic.

Thank you for your consideration!

And the story:
To all of those who have a Road King you know the versatility these bikes have. For those who don't know the pics will tell the story. We've been from Jersey to most points south and this bike has never skipped a beat. I recently traded this bike for an Ultra. The Ultra is a great bike for it's purpose (touring) but the King is hard to beat as an all around great bike.

Add this PIX to my resume! It may help persuade some votes. It shows the V&H Big Radius pipes!! Somehow they were deleted from the entry.

The SBfighter needs to loose the gages and mirrors. A RK with 85k on the clock and still looks new gets my vote.

aldean gets my vote

Once again I choose the pretty bike (aldean) vs the one I'd like to ride (SBfighter).

This month it was a lot harder to decide. SB, if you had a some nicer wheels, I'd have given yours the nod. But I am pretty sure you're happy as can be with that bike whether you get my vote or not. Man, that's a kick ass motor!
