How have you equipped your Dyna for long distance riding? I have windshield, saddlebags, tank bag, camelback, tools, and rain gear. What have you done?
KrustyTC said:Depends on what you mean by "long distance riding". To some of us less hard core guys, long distance might mean a day trip. If your buying a Dyna for cross country rides I think your buying the wrong bike.
just my opinion though,
Sounds like you guys had a good first trip. We rode the smokie mt national park last fall on our way to south padre island from michigan . made a pass though the dragon on way down .. spent a month and rode back the end of october ....its about a 5200 mile run ... If you like your lowrider ,,, never let your wife get on the back of an electra glide ,, because if you do ,,, you will be trading bikes lol. ratjeepnut said:04 Dyna Lowrider with Mustang seat, forward controls, Kuryakyn pegs & grips, detachable windshield & saddlebags plus other modiifications not comfort related. Last June my wife and I rode from Southwest Missouri through Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia, down the Blue Ridge Parkway to the Smoky Mountain National Park and back home through Tennesse and Arkansas. 2445 miles total in seven days. This was our first road trip and we had no problems with comfort. baggers do have more storage, but a Dyna works just fine for us.

Put some nice grips and pegs on it too, but that was more for style than comfort. I guess the throttle boss could be considered a touring item. Highly recommend them. I could ride the bike all day and night and be comfy, but I'm a skinny ass...:cheers:
