Congrats to Easy123 on winning bike of the month for February!! Feel free to give him a pat on the back and congradulate him on the win.

Here are the details on the bike.
This month’s contest clearly illustrates why we all love Harleys – there really are no two alike! From full-blown custom to bone stock and everything in between – they’re all great bikes. They’re all our own vision of what a motorcycle should be. Congratulations to us all!
My ride started out as a 2010 Road Glide Custom and I promised myself that after decorating my previous Road King with assorted chrome bits that “this time I wouldn’t do anything to it.” In a moment of weakness however, after completing my annual ride from Toronto to Los Angeles, I couldn’t resist the call to make it my own. Of course the difficulty with any custom project was figuring out how far to go. My goal with this bike was to be true to its’ roots – it’s a touring bike after all and while I was tempted to create something truly outrageous, I still wanted to be able to ride it coast to coast. I was fortunate to find in Jim Hisey of JH Customs an artisan who was as understanding as he was capable. He is responsible for all the fabrication and paint as well as the occasional good idea (lol)! Together we were able to find the right balance and I am quite happy with the results.
Be sure to wave if you see me on the road this summer.

Congratulations, beautiful bike. I will admit I voted for the bike with the side car because it was different, and this was my second choice. :rolleyes:

Great looking scoot. The tank is kick-ass. Your bike is a refreshing reminder that if planned properly, sometimes less is more. I appreciate that you have a full custom looker, but didn't spray a $10k paint job or use stretched bags and fender and all the usual trappings. A true achievement to end up with a bike that's so good looking and yet retains it's full functionality. That's very desireable in my book.
