Looking good, lots of mods already. My favorite one is that yellow sign on the handlebars. Good color choice too.

Got some goodies installed -- finally

Between piss-poor weather and being sick, I haven't had time to get in the shop and get to work on Jenny. I still feel like crap, but I forged ahead and got the following installed today: (amazing what you can do on codine-laced cough syrup )

Kuryakyn ISO Grips, Rider Running Boards, Running Board Spacer Kit, Highway Pegs, Shifter pegs, Brake Pedal, Passenger Pegs and LED Taillight, plus Harley's Extended Shifter Levers.

I still have the Alloy Art front turn signals, the CD Plasma Rods, the Garage Door Opener Mod and Iron Aces' GPS mount to go, but that's another day.

Here's a few pix:

Blue LED accent wiring was installed today and wired into the ACC switch and I also managed to fab-up the fake Odometer/Garage door opener reset button on the Speedo/Tach bezel.

I'm now at the point of waiting for the UPS truck to deliver my radio, speedo & tach once the LED blue color mods are done.

Its getting there.

How do you like that Harley air cleaner? The RG I test drove and fell in love with had a stage 1 kit done with that a/c and I thought it was awesome how loud it was when romping on the the throttle.

Would you recommend it?
