49mm Forks on my 2011 FLTRX

Well for 3years Howard at Motorcycle Metals has been designing triple trees for dressers with 41mm forks so he could install his triple trees , 49mm forks and 30mm fully adjustable cartridges like he has done for years on Dyna's . 17 weeks ago I dropped my bike off to him for what we thought was a 2 week install and set up of his first set . He ran into unforeseen issues and yesterday 3/1 I finally went down to Miami from Tampa to pick my bike up . I will give a complete review and write up shortly but I can tell you these things are sweet .
