Smile Power Upgrade - Awesome dealership!

Hi all...
As a recent convert earlier this year from a V-Rod to a RGU, I am very impressed with this bike.
I purchased a new to me 2011 RGU and have put about 10,000 miles on her in the past 4 months.
Put the stage I kit in right away including V&H slip-ons, SE breather and SE race tuner, and many other mods including tall boy seat and bars, Performance Machine Rival rims, Madstad windshield (Awesome!!) saddlebag guards, daymaker head lights and many more...

The only complaint that I had was the lack of "passing power" compared to what I was used to from the V-Rod.
After speaking with my local dealer - Longley Harley Davidson in Peterborough - I decided to upgrade the shark with the stage IV tire shredder kit. Bike is having the install done as we speak.

Am really looking forward to the increased power this upgrade will give me, and although it will never match the power of the v-rod, hopefully it will get me around the "blue hair" drivers a little quicker.

I really want to give a shout out to my dealership... Once they started into the upgrade, they noticed that my crank was worn so it needed to be replaced. As I bought the ESP at the time of purchase, the crank is covered by the warranty so that is awesome. What I didn't realize though, is that now all of the labour that I was going to have to pay to perform the upgrade is being covered by ESP as well!!!
I am so glad that I decided to purchase the ESP.
Between the free clutch replacement 2 months ago, and now the labour on the Stage IV kit, it has more than paid for itself.

Longley HD is such a great dealership... very friendly staff and owners.

Thanks for reading..just wanted to share my story of a great dealership to work with....

Good to know you have a good dealership. Some are not so lucky.
