I'm not parting with my Scarlet Red 2010 FLTRX either ... But I am thinking about the Fueling 543 cams.

Scarlet Red 2010 Road Glide Custom named Trixie - She's a flashy little minx..
Basic black 1981 Tour Glide Classic named Alice - She's a sleeper project.

Yup, I got over that "got to have new " years ago. Even though I like the new stuff, I like bought & paid for and customized better.

I'm always grateful for what I have and will be grateful for what I have next. 🙂

Unlike Jack I have no clue that different Harley engines sound different. I know that cams and exhaust change the sound but sometimes I can't tell the difference between a loud Harley, a redneck pickup, or a beat up VW beetle.

The OP`s story reminds me of when I lived in Daytona Beach and folks who owned the only 'hot' car in the county they lived in would come to Daytona in it and found out they were a dime a dozen down on the beach. The 'hot' car was the Lamborgini owned by Ron Rice of Hawaiian Tropic Suntan products.

Buy what makes you happy, not what impresses others. There will always be those happy for you, those not impressed, and those jealous of you

I have the same bike in scarlet red with a 106. Like it because you don't see that color everyday. Easy to find in a parking lot. If it were black I'd have to put a clothespin on the windshield so I'd know which one is mine.
Newer might be nice but I know what I have and boogies along just fine.
