so the wife and I are out for dinner at bonefish grill for our anniversary, I tell her I got her a new iPhone for anniversary, she says "does that mean we're not getting the RK?"
so it appears I must go thru with the RK deal. the dealer is holding a midnight pearl unit for me, waiting on me to decide if I'm gonna use my money or someone elses to make up the difference on my trade. Should be rockin the road king by saturday or friday.
Hey you road king riders, how difficult is it getting to the air valve on that back tire to check tire pressure? obviously it won't be a deal breaker just occurred to me looking at the pic again on the HD site

Checking tire pressure is all part of the Game. you are a able body rider who can bend down right? you roll the Bagger till the valve is at the 7 o'clock or even 6 o'clock position. you will end up finding a tire gauge that fits. I use accu gauge or even yamaha gauge...... funny .. the H-D analog gauge does not fit my '04 with laced O.E. wheels, but i have other gauges^^^.
might as well get the detachable sissy bar and backrest pad if your wife rides 2up.... stealership should give you a deal on parts when making the purchase.
Please post up Pics of your NEW HAWG..... You will be HAPPY.

Do a little google search for 90 degree valve stems for Harley's. You might get the dealer to install them as part of the deal. Otherwise, like most of us, you'll wait until tire change time, and not check your PSI as often as you should until then. You do have to be careful of the brakes when considering the 90 degree valve stems.

I pretty much figured the air pressure check would be a bit of a trick, just needed to hear it from those already dealing with it.
guess I'll be picking it up on fri if I can manage to disappear from work early or else or sat. I got the detachable back rest for the wife's narrow riding window. mostly it will be off.
looking forward to knocking out that first 600 mi. cause I've got an epic ride planned for early june

Order a pair of Camco valve stem extenders from Amazon. When you need to check your air in the rear, remove the side case, and connect the valve stem extender to the valve stem. To make it easier, connect them both together. Then you can use any gauge or compressor chuck or bicycle pump you want. When you're done, keep them in the side case so you'll be able to use a compressor when you're on the road.

Hope this helps,
'fooz

Use image tags around the URL (remove the % signs):

[%IMG]http://server/path/image.jpg[/IMG%]

You can host images with tinypic.com and it will even generate the code for you...

No pic, but likes like the 06 on page 3-Black Cherry color- 32000 miles (it does have to share time with my S3).
I was actually looking at some new HD's the other day- If I ever did replace it, it was be with another Road King.
