Post Back on the Bike

I have been off of the bikes for a few years. But just picked up a 2016 Road Glide Special and added some 18" apes and have tall boys lowering brackets ordered. I joined up to this site to get opinions and suggestions with more add on's and or goodies. I am 6'5" 250lbs so and suggestions for bigger riders would be awesome.

Welcome to the forum. Do not fret. There are guys on here who are very adept and super-skilled at spending other peoples money..... I am big boned as well.., but just under 6'. I think the tallboys are one of the best mods. I do drag them a bit in the twisty's and some tight parking lot turns, but I don't freak out about it. I never look at the bottom of my boards anyway, I would rather have the comfort for my hips and stretch out a bit. Congrats on new bike and glad to hear we have a new shark in the pack.

Forgot, you may want to look at a Tallboy seat or others that move you back a bit as well.

Move those boards out 1 1/4 inch. Gets your thighs off the tank.
