I am thinking of trying this out on my old 1988 Electra Glide, However I use a headlight modulator and I am wondering if this would be an issue with the 3800 lumen LED bulb?

Sportster

I miss my Sporty. It was the most trouble free bike I've owned. Rock solid and dependable as the sun coming up. Just wasn't comfy enough for me on long trips so kudos to you for riding it to Alaska!...

Fxrt

I'd like to see HD bring the FXRT back. It was a great fairing, and on a new Dyna you'd have a good sport touring bike.
