wrecked my baby, I need a new body!!

So I was out on rt 66 on labor day, and had I run in with PAs excellent road work, well bad things happened.....me and my sweetheart will be ok, just some road rash and bruises. So...I'm waiting on the adjuster, to find out the fate of my RG...... I was thinking about doing the big front wheel this winter and bags next winter,,,,,my time line is greatly accelerated. .... I like top shop black death with viper cuts, also dirty birds top shelf, and azzkiker big merc. Anythoughts?

I want to do a 23 or 26 front wheel with a metal FL style fender...

We made it out pretty good, any and all thoughts would be appreciated....

With dirty bird selling off their HD line so Shope can focus on Indian, I'd rule that one out. Let him sit on parts would be my theory. That's IF, enough people quit doing business with him as far as HD parts.



Glad you guys are here to tell about it.

I am glad to hear that you were able to walk away but I can comment on PA's road work. Having taken many of their roads for SW4 I can say that I did not hit one road that was not under some tyoe of construction. Even some of the back roads taken to get to a restaurant had construction comes or barricades.

I would agree with OBB in staying away from Dirty Bird.

Good luck in your decisions.

Enjoy the Ride!

It wouldnt have been too bad if there was cones or something, Appearantly that section of road was finished!! WTF?!?!

So no Dirty Bird, I can get the top shelf kit with viper cut outs so that i can retain my factory ride.... I am all for looks but if its a trailer queen its useless to me!!

Here are some pics....
