Hello from the Wet Coast

Glad to be in a forum dedicated to the Road Glides, I have referenced threads here in the past for mods and repairs; decided it was time to join into the discussion. I ride a 2008 FLTRU 105th Anniversary Edition and have done most of the necessary mods to get it to a reliable touring bike. Living in a rain forest, it gets out in all kinds of weather but does get tucked away from November to March, when there is frost and snow on the ground.

I've ripped everything apart on this bike except the motor - it only has 20k km on the 110" SE, so I haven't had a need to dive into the guts yet. Spent all winter stripping the front end - replaced the springs and polished the lowers, punched new bearings into the rear swing arm, replaced all mounts, swapped out my dash LEDs to blue, added the Progressive Touring link, replaced air cleaner, derby cover, and then splurged a little and picked up some Pro Actions to plant the rear end. It rides right and tight now.

Looking forward to being a part of the forum community.

Cheers

Ian

That's just the motor and tranny rebuild. 57k km on the bike now (and rapidly climbing).
