Swapped out the pillow look seat for an original factory seat for my '00 Screamin' Eagle RG. Got done late, will take it for a ride tomorrow.

Blue Skies and sunshine. The fall is some of the best riding. No other bikes in sight.
Very nice! I hope you had heated gear on!

Awesome ~ I am a cold weather rider too ~ being from Sunny FL ~ this makes it tough ~ I have all the heated gear and managed to ride through some snow covered trees last year in KY ~ roads were dry ~ gorgeous day... As far as the Deer ~ I run the Deer Whistlers (Walmart/Autozone). I counted 60 one night on I-10 in FL ~ spent the $7 and installed myself Number of deer sightings has dropped dramatacilly. Florida Highway Patrol claims they have not hit a deer or a black bear since they started using them. Some say they work ~ some don't think so ~ I average 35-40k per year and run them... In my circle I ride with guys that ride alot more than I do and they use them... Food for Thought

Me and a buddy rode to the Richmond VA Teddy Bear ride and the Urbanna Oyster Festival yesterday. Left at 8am when it was 41 degrees and got back at 6pm when it was 56 degrees. Great day for riding! Chaps, leather and gloves! All you need for a great day of riding...in addition to gas!! LOL!

what i did to my Roadie today.

Lets see on Friday and Saturday, I put headers and new mufflers, new air cleaner, new windshield and a cobra fi2000. Sounds and performs way better than stock. Looks much better too!

The 2012 riding season is officially over for me.... (sigh!). Parked it and covered it. We also got about 8" - 10" of snow in our area Wednesday. Went for a small scoot Tuesday and topped off the tank.
