Now change your signature and profile!

P.S. What did you decide to do about the wheels?
Will be updating the profile and signature shortly.:chopper: Decided to go with the traditional spoke wheels being that the profile laced have been rendered not orderable until Harley figures out what the defects are.

Beautiful bike!

Perfect color now that HD went from light-colored fiberglass for the bags, etc. to the black material - it should not show rock dings..... Ride the heck out of it!

Enjoy the new ride.

Hey congrats on the new scooter. Check out that thread on the moco injectors service order and look at those injectors before you take delivery just to be sure it has the updated ones. Enjoy the new scooter.

Sweet... This summer I'll have to keep an eye out for the guy in Erie riding the Black Ultra with a large sloppy grin on his face.

Very nice looking ride. Where did you purchase the bike?? Possibly I will see you in Erie some day.
Jamestown, NY. Got the first bike from Erie. The 2nd from Jamestown. I have my reservations about Erie service. Didn't always make me feel at home if you know what I mean. But Jamestown for some strange reason just feels right.

I got the Profile Lace. I got the Profile Lace!!!! :woohoo: :woohoo:

I ordered the profile lace but Harley discontinued so the dealer couldn't get them with my purchase. So I decided to get the regular wagon looking wheel which is what you see in the above pics. However deep in side I didn't want that wheel. So I decided to go back to the mag wheel and later on I'd get it chromed.

Lo and behold the dealer calls and says he has a fix. A new '05 Road King pops up on his floor with nothing other than the profile laced wheels. I said, "Swap'em!". He goes sure thing but it will cost you an extra $500 for labor and that wheel is more exspensive. *my mouth now on the ground* I go, "Doesn't matter, do it anyway". He says, "We happen to be running a $500 parts deal on new bikes." So even though I ordered technically in 2005 he's still giving me the deal. Plus I get 15% off the parts after that. So bottom line......
Free fuggin wheel upgrade!!!! ?prty:
So my smile just got wider! More to come.

Why did Harley discontinue the Profile Laced wheel? I have them on my '05 Ultra Classic.

Darn good question. Of which my dealer in Jamestown does not have an answer. He says they didn't have a defect wrong with them. So I assumed it was just one of those limited time only items. AND I WAS RUNNING OUTTA TIME!
