Bars and saddle...

The bars are Wild One 518's. I looked long and hard before going with them. I was looking for several things (pullback, rise and wrist angle) and the 518's were the best compromise for all. I like to sit back in the seat and relax and they offer that.
The seat is a Corbin Dual Touring (and I have both backrests) and I love it - mostly. Still get some butt burn on longer rides and in particular when I don't have the backrest adjusted correctly.
I would've liked to try a Danny Gray single touring, since my daughter doesn't like to ride anymore. I don't like their dual, but the single seems to be more comfortable.
The one mistake I made was the brake lever - I went with the "girder" one for Softtails and it's too short.

Hey HarleyGirl - those are staggereds. (BTW - I did respond to your email about them, too!)
They are LOUD! One hellavalot louder than the SEII slip-ons. EVERYONE notices the bike now! (I am hoping the cops aren't...) Since I am FI, I am looking for a PCIII to compensate for some mid-range power loss, but nothing I can't live with.

Thanks for all the comments! Next year, I am hoping to do the Stage II Big Bore kit and the PCIIIr. Maybe new shocks and tires too.

Yeah, right. Next year, my wife will want all new forks and forward controls for her Low Rider. Prolly new bars and cabling, as well....
