It wasn't the year that made it feel old lol, it was the miles the bike had more than 62k miles and was feeling like it needed some work to bring it back to that new tight feeling. It was made obvious once I rode the E-Glide that the RK was getting a little worn, the newer bike felt tighter right away. Usually I keep my bikes for a long time like twenty plus years but at the rate I was going the bike would have more than 75k miles in less than five years and would have very little value.

Enjoy it!
I'm going to find out, haven't felt it on my feet yet, Sidi boots I'm sure are helping keep the heat away.

Defelectors are stock on this bike, hope it helps. Right now it's not a problem, might even be making the riding nicer since it's been chilly.

Thanks for the good wishes, time to go for a ride.
In 2009 I rode 18,589 miles on an island that's 72 miles long. That's 50 miles a day everyday for 365 days. I think I'll go home now. 97k miles and still riding my YouTube Channel
