Just got the bike back with the new goodies installed! Unfortunately the blinkers are still on back order.

Thanks, I also like the more aggressive look and feel!

And as for the washing the bike - I knew I would get flak for that

But I just couldn't resist to take it for a spin even though the temperatures are now dropping below zero over here. Was lucky enough that it was a cold clear day but unfortunately the roads weren't that clean, hence the resulting mess...

Only new springs where fitted (front & back) not a new shocking but I can tell that its a MASSIVE improvement over stock for me! The bike is no longer running wide because of my weight (230 lb) and pretty much no more squatting or diving. Its rock steady and feels like the bike is riding on train rails now, best upgrade ever

Forks were completely dissembled for an overhaul (re-valve, polish etc) so there was no need to slip it over the fork tube.

I've been on the fence, mainly cause I hate to part with my money. But I finally ordered the Ohlins TR805 rear shock today. It's going to take a couple weeks, but can't wait.

A guy who used to work for me (now he's at my bosses level) just texted me if I wanted to knock off work and go for a ride. I thought he meant for an hour or something but he meant lunch 2 1/2 hours away. I told him if he thought his Harley could hold together that long I'm in. Work can wait
