Congratulations Zedbra. The ole girl has class and some spunk I’m sure. Not many get ridden as much or taken care of as well. Well done

TY to the other entrants for participating. I’m glad to see this thread come back to life.

Thanks gents. I always say, she's no prom Queen, but in my hands, she'll always get ya home. ;) This is my forever bike, gonna keep it running until I can't find a 12 point 10mm anymore to swap the brakes (or whatever tools I need at the time). What I can find, is 16" tires front and rear. ;) Roll, roll, roll, let yourself go

Sweet , you did same to your copper glide as I did with the ultra tp and rear speakers , what number is yours ? Mine was 481

JtB
Mine is 1480/1500, one of the last to leave the line. Even though the TP is a quick release, I always have it mounted through the riding season, it only comes off through the winter when the bike goes up on the hoist. I ripped out all the Ultra wiring harness front and rear - I don't have a CB or Comms - never will.

There are some great bikes....I mean AWESOME bikes in the BOTM running. Great idea by the Admin & Mods here. Every month is a new treat. I hardly feel qualified to put mine in here. Belatedly....major compliments to Ian (Zedbra) for his 'you're not getting older...you're getting better' Glide which won for July. That's one I always admire. I haven't followed things too closely here recently, as I've had a sudden onset of vertigo which has disabled me from riding completely. So I took a bit of time to list up the (omg) stuff we've done to our 2020 Road Glide Limited. I give huge credit to my fantastic wife for her enthusiasm and input. I also credit the RG Forums and so many of its members with helping make this ride into what she is. Our dream ride come to life; here is PIKLZ:

Hey Kev @StoneTrekker - how is the vertigo coming along? I want to hear that you are back in the wind on that wicked bike.
Well, I wish I had better news. I've had this vertigo for 8 consecutive days and it's not going away. I just went for a short walk outside and felt drunk the entire time. I'm queasy or even nauseated about 50% of the day. Have lost 3 pounds (not missed though) from reduced intake. There's simply no way I can touch the bike currently. I wouldn't be able to get it out of the garage without a wreck. I know this isn't BOTM-topic stuff, but I really appreciate you asking Ian.

Anyway....trying to get an ENT appt soon. My wife is concerned and watching over me like a hawk.

The forum helps me pass some of the time. I'm grateful to all.
