Added a Grateful Dead Steal Your Face Derby Cover, and HD Wind deflectors.

While in Sturgis, at 3,500 miles, I had all 3 fluids changed to Amsoil Synthetic.

Next I added a Power Commander V from Fuel Moto and Arlen Ness Stage II Derby Sucker and added another GD Steal Your Face Cover. Used a Cooling Map supplied from Fuel Moto to richen up the A/F mix a bit. Bike is running great now!

Also I added stock passenger boards for my girlfriend( had some on my Street Glide and my she really missed having them). I was able to find some from here on this forum for free!!! Just had to go to the Dealer and get the Hardware. Cost me $12! Thank you!

Last weekend I made some glove box liners out of some grey auto carpet i had laying around to keep things from banging around. Actually, my mother did all of the work on those as a birthday gift. What a sweetheart! She even hand sewed velcro on so they can be removed

thats it so far...more mods to come.(looking for a new horn cover, waiting on floorboard extensions from Harley-Goodies, hopefully some black 12"-14" apes, and new Rinehart Xtreme 2 into 1, and black out some more parts)
Oh and getting my inner Fairing replaced under warranty, and upgrading to Vivid Black Painted Inner
5,600 miles in 2 months and cant wait to ride it more.
Got caught in a hard rain coming home from work last night, but it quit as soon as I got home and took this picture with the Rainbow

Thanks for looking!

Oh and I almost forgot, i have a Windvest 10" smoked windshield and bought a new HD rubber seal so I dont have to remove it from windshield on to the other. Much better for 2 up riding and long trips or cold weather. And you can see my sheepskin I cut to fit the seat, and sewed elastic straps on the front and back to hold it in place. Sheepskin is so nice on long trips and for hot and cold weather riding.

Your ride is shaping up nicely... Looks great. I am liking those bars. You were able to switch those out with stock cables and wires--right? I may switch mine out this winter. I am curious as to how wide your bars are thow, from center grip to center grip. I have PYO's 10" apes on mine now, and they seem a little narrow.

Thanks Rowdy.
Yes, All Stock wires and brake cable, just swapped the clutch cable out with a +4" cable to allow it to go in the stock location.
I dont have dimensions in my head, but they are the 1 1/4", 14" Santees apes.I think they are 33" center to center, but im not sure. i will check when i get a chance.

Thanks GR8FLH, I would appreciate it. I REALLY like th ole school look of those bars combined with the painted inner faring. As big a PITA it is to change those bars, I want to be pretty damn sure I have something that will work. I am working on getting all the parts together to do some mods in one fell swoop. Faring off, mods done. Wala... Wish me luck with that. I know something will come up after the fact. It always does... lol.

These are the same bars that Slowglide on the forum has as well.
from Custom Chome part #693673
Santees Black 14" apes
Width 33.75",Center 10", Pullback 11"

I believe they are the same as the Swedged bars on website though they give a different pullback.
These are not the Baggerwerx bars they list for a Road Glide.
(not these!)
