Blue's build

Hi all,
Somewhat new to the forum, been lurking while I had a fat bob and this forum helped me decide to trade in for a shark. 2013 Big Blue Pearl Road Glide Custom. So far I have added 16" Carlini Gangster Apes and black braided cables and black Magnum Harley "get a grip" grips as well as 5" adjustable extended highway pegs. Today I dropped her off for her performance mods and 1k mile service. She is getting:

SE Billet A/C -black
Vance and Hines power dual headers - black
CFR mufflers fluted tips - black
SE 255 cams
SERT tuner
Dyno Tune

I have had a lot of fun getting to know this bike in its stock form and then with ape hangers for the first time on a bike for me. Loving it, harley makes a hell of a bike without any mods. However I do know from my fatbob that just a few minor mods to help it breath and a tune for the mile high city make a HUGE difference.

Here she is stock:


Here she is with new bars and grips and extended hw pegs:




Will post more pics after phase 2 mods are complete, will have the bike back Friday. Hope I can sleep ok between now and then

More pics below, here is the dyno graph after all mods:

Nice choice of bars but I may be biased. I think you got an awesome set of pipes too. I think over the mod season I'm going to trade my sell off my dragos and get some cfr's since I heard the sound on my buddies its more of what I want.
