Haha. Yes! For now. I'm at the end of my bike money for the year. Need to choose wisely. I have my trip coming up and the wife has a trip coming up.

Not to be a Kill Joy but I think the Trike Headers are a tad "Longer" if memory serves so not sure if a standard TC header will fit - I think.......don't quote me but do dbl check as I remember some sort of issue my Buddy had when he was trying to add parts off his '15 SG to his '16 FW and the exhaust was the first thing he tired to fuck with

I already did mufflers. Anything from a 1999 to 2016 touring muffler fits this. There are drop down sections that go from the stock M8 header. Which makes the pipe outlets equal diameter allowing all those years to fit. Which is nice. Not limited to M8 only mufflers.

And same goes with the wifes TC. Same header. Has the drop down sections. the header I'm putting on is a TC header.

Always love the look of a torn down bike. Just means all the good stuff is coming.

I've been trying to convince my dad to get back on a bike for awhile now. He's been off so long that he's afraid to ride 2 wheels anymore. I'll have to show him this once complete. It may change his mind about riding all together.

I seem to have some Getty up go dont I? Lol. I love working on them as much as riding them. When I first lost my job due to my health I applied at a MC school. Was told no go because I had a felony. I told him to straight fuck off instead of trying to get to the truth and seeing if I could just go and worry about the job later. I believe it was due to trying to job place a felon.

Ya. Tell the Old Man get the fuck up to a dealer and test ride one. They're a hoot to blast around on. And when you're going straight down the road. You dont know you're on a trike. You're just riding.

Or being stripped back to stock before the trade in.

Which of course means that a new bike is coming!
