Best Mod ever. . . . selling my dyna and buying my 12 road glide custom, every other part I've added since then just add's to the already "excellent ride" the bike has!

2012 Road Glide Custom Vivid Black named "Becky" with a simple motto "If it came from the factory like that, it doesn't belong on the bike!"

Best thing so far Cobra Power Pro Fi2000 Auto Tuner. NO MORE MAPPING. I can make any additional mods and it automatically adjusts 80 times/sec. I've always ran a power commander with good luck and was extremely skeptical, but wow what a difference, and easy to install. I've already added and taken away different things, and it always adjusts. Pricey but it was worth it. The performance blows the power commander out of the water too.

Adding the 14.5 inch medium gray tint Madstad windshield. It made for a very comfortable ride for Momma and we all know happy wife happy life.

Windvest 15". Really thought hard about the Madstad, but at less than half the price, this one works extremely well.

However...I DO have a set Todd's Cycle 10" Z Bar mini apes in black sitting in my garage just waiting for me to tackle the swap!

The combination of the reduced reach bars and a back rest by far. A close second is the 15" HD wind splitter windshield. I know that the bars & back rest are actually 2 items but what they do in combination with each other work as one unit to reduce back & shoulder strain. One without the other has limited effect on back & shoulder strain.
