:D

I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself as the proud new owner (delivery Saturday) of a Gunmetal Pearl RKC. This is my first HD after riding *** cruisers the past 10 years (I currently have a Honda ACE). The time was right to take the plunge (I turn 40 this fall). The bike is currently being accessorized with V&H slip-ons with the new turn-down tips (almost went SE with the fishtails but the sound of the V&H's I thought sounded deeper; the dealership started a few in the back for me as comparison), detachable backrest with luggage rack attached for the long trips with my wife, and 100th anniversary package accessories; handgrips in particular. I am really looking forward to the bike plus the whole "HD experience" and commradarie.
Look forward to posting on this forum,
Croozer

Yo Croozer1,

Congrats on the new ride (especially be'n it's a RKC). I'm planning on the same this summer. Maybe I'll run into ya somewhere here in the NE. Never know.

In the meantime, gotta get thru this #@#%! winter.

congradulations!..... Now go back to the dealer and buy a few bottles of Gunmetal Pearl Touchup paint.... as it may become harder to find in the future or may not be a perfect match in the future..... I kinda feel for all the black and silver bike owners who won't be able to touchup their silver paint like the Gunmetal pearl etc...

Carolina Rider,

I have the V&H's longshots on my Road King and they sound fantastic. They really look cool, the double barrel shotgun effect. I took the stock baffles out and installed a pair from another type pipe, Samson I think. They are about 6" shorter than the V&H baffle.

Welcome to touring at it's best! I moved to 03 RKC in November after deciding that all the extras on the FLHTCUI was move than I wanted to have around me all the time.

For some added perfromance and sound, I've added Samson Rolled Thunder Ovals, K&N Air and the PC IIIr to manage them. For looks, the Gold Key 100 anniversary package was a good start. Much more to come as the wallet allows.

I be posting pix soon.
