The beginning of the Gonzomobile customization

***EDIT - Since some dummy (me) deleted all his photobucket pics, it totally jacked the pics from this thread. I got some updated pics and posted them at the end***

See . . . what had happened was . . . .

My wife and I went to a poker run that started at the HD dealership. At the time I was riding a 2012 Kawasaki Voyager. I saw the salesman she bought her bike from walking through the parking lot, and thinking I was Mr. Smart Man, said, "Whenever you can make me a good enough deal to warrant trading my bike in I just might buy a Road Glide." His response was, "I have the pencil, I'll make the deal whatever it needs to be." Needless to say, a few hours later I rode home on a 2013 Ultra.

So far, I installed the Kuryakyn Longhorn highway pegs I had on my prior ride, installed Heritage Style Bars, put on a 12" Windsplitter, and did the garage door mod so many others have done. As soon as the big brown truck gets here I'll have a set of crash bars for the bags. Next addition will be the Zumo 660.

It'll be slow going, but I'm loving this bike already. Anyway, here she is. BTW, my road name is Gonzo. Makes the "Gonzomobile" thing make a little sense at least . . .

Very nice bike. I like the Vaqueros too. Saw one in a mag, modded out, that looked cool. Of course the RG is nicer
