Well, the pictures are not very good and the saddle bags are not yet mounted on the bike (they won’t be in till next week) but you can see the new exhaust, new seat, passing lamp and turn signal covers, headlamp covers, new grips, engine and saddle bag guards, Speedo/Tach, and various chrome additions, blah, blah, blah, etc…

The back seat rest for my wife and my windscreen have been removed for now. I love those quick release mounts!

I promise to post much better pictures once the saddle bags are mounted and I get her cleaned up a little more and outside. Just so damn excited now that my bike is back.

The Vance&Hines Bigshot Longs sound Great and I love the new Tach/Speedometer. Much eaiser to break in when you can see the rpm's!

Awesome! Seeing yours makes me even more anxious to get mine in November. Are the seat and saddlebags HD? Also, I like the pegs on the engine guard......and want to set mine up the same way.
Have fun,
Lubey
The seat is the Harley Davidson Sundowner Deep Bucket, they make one for each model of the Softtails and is much more comfortable than the stock seat.

The Highway pegs are also Harley Davidson the "Billet" pegs.

Like I said, will post better pictures latter :)

Wow very nice bike, congrads John. We will have to go riding as soon as you break it in. If you are looking for some place to ride it Patriot H-D is having their 100th year open house tomorrow. And, I'll be working the parking lot form 0900-1100, if you'd like to stop by. Bikes only in the lot.

Again beautiful bike, I look forward to seeing it.

Damn, just read the post today/tonight! I would have come on down and stopped in:(

How about next weekend? Although I know how important the break in period is (it's been about five years since I had to break in a bike new) it sure is a pain;)

Yep, that's Gunmetal Pearl, that looks better in person.

For those asking, check the Classifieds section of this Forum for the Badlander seat and Handlebar clamp that I'm selling on eBay. :)

Sweeeeet. Did you install the speedo/tach yourself?
No, but watched (what a rip-off) as it plugs directly into the old harness with zero wiring to be done. Looks good and works great, just a little pricey. Had the stealer do the install so the unit would be warranted for two years in case it deceides to fog up (like some other HOG gages I have had in the past years).... So far, so great with no problems. It really is helping with the break in of the bike!
