    Thanks, I put more than 62k miles on my 09 Road King more than any other bike I've owned and it was great for putting down miles. In the last week I rode 700 miles just riding around town, this bike is more comfortable than the RK and I thought that was the most comfortable bike I've owned. I didn't plan on buying this bike went into the dealer for a cup of coffee and left on a new bike, got a fair price for the RK and a good deal on the new bike.

    Haters will hate, no biiggie, I still wave, will still stop, still talk story with anyone and take no offense when the other guy talks smack about my bike.

    It's the HD two up seat in vinyl. It rides smooth and handles well. It's my first bike so I don't really have anything to compare it to. The hard candy paint looks awesome in the sun.

    Honestly a harley has probably the widest pegs I've seen on a bike. Some LSL track pegs should sort out scraping issues. I'll probably get some for mine by next summer.

    I don't know how it is for others, but if I didn't have that extra length, My right foot would be slipping off a lot more with those forward controls.

    The new Street Bobs are the best ones yet, and you did yours just right. If they had the factory customization last year I would be on one of those instead of a Blackline. Enjoy your new ride!

    I sold my XR1200, (I do miss her) I was just too old to ride her, I had speeding issues!!! I got a sweet Road King and I feel good riding it so far

    If I ever was to get a new Harley, this one would be hard to beat. Has everything I need.
    A detachable shield and a set of bags.......what would this be like as a "sometimes" touring bike?

    A lot of lovely bikes! Thank you all for sharing.

    A buddy of mine pinstriped my Deluxe and I'm enjoying the forward controls as opposed to the footboards.

    Warmest regards from up north, Mark H.

    Nothing much nicer looking than a black Road King. Beautiful bike!

    Hey all

    First post here on advrider, been hanging out on hdforums for quite a while. Started "expanding my horizons" as it were and been lurking for a bit. Glad to know I don't have to trade one of my bikes away to be part of this adventure-riding thing :clap

    We've got 3 HDs in the garage right now:

    Imagine that, I just joined the HDforums not too long ago.

    Great bikes. Love the fishtails.

    Got rid of it last January...my wife and I at the time were splitting up, and I decided I wanted to go back to a sport-tourer since I was going to be riding solo again mostly. I like the Zed, but I miss "Elvis".

    Thanks!

    Those are Kerkers with "Rocket Tips" on Cobra true-dual headpipes. It took a lot of research and swapping to find the fishtail look that would work with the SE211 cams, not be obnoxiously loud, and still allow reasonable throughput and not choke the poor bike off.

    SWEET BIKE!

    I have been thiking about doing the old pre-1948 rear fender with pogo seat on my softail.

    V-Twin and custom Chrome make this pogo seat kit, check it out its really cool:
    http://www.vtwinmfg.com/webapp/wcs/..._10102_3304039_-1_141351_141924_141929_141936

    Its a mini plunger that mounts to your frame and uses the pre-1948 seat "T". I have seen these installed on Softails, and it looks really similar to the original pogo seat setup used on the pre-1948 hart tail big twins.

    Did you cut the fender strut mounts off of the frame?

    Did the pre-1948 hinged rigid fender fit nicely into the softail swingarm, or did it need extensive cutting and welding?
