    You know I never did get those pictures. I’ll really really try to get them today. Besides I installed a go pro mount and to get a better pic of the screen.

    Okay, pics as promised.
    Took these with the GoPro Black 6. Just wanted to try out the GoPro on a neck lanyard walking around before trying it on the bike. Still debating if I will want it on the new mount on the fairing.
    Also installed some heel rests on the floorboards. May have to adjust after a ride. Sometimes its just nice to stretch the legs out.
    First up is the cockpit with the new handlebars and phone mount. All the gauges are visible, and mirrors are not blocked by my arms.

    So how does the boot hook thingy work? I've seen those on some other bikes, but wasn't sure if you put your toes out on the crash bar and then your heel on that hook, or what. I wondered how secure the boot would be on that thing (looks like a good way to slice an achilles if it slipped off)

    I don’t know yet, just installed this morning. I can see that it can be toes out. If I move it back some then my toes won’t reach the crash bars. I prefer to have my feet solidly on the floor boards and plan on using the hooks to stretch out my legs.

    So today I was cleaning up the coat rack and took down both daughters jackets and helmets getting ready to clean them up for sale. They tell me that they want to ride with me again.
    Sooooo, I got a mustang passenger saddle ordered
    Now need to find the passenger pegs and mounts and a passenger grab handle. Any suggestions?

    I mounted HD passenger floor boards, may not be the look you're going for though. Added passenger grab rail from Amazon or Ebay, can't remember.

    I've gone full tilt touring mode this week for the winter. On a side note, realized that I had several hundred dollars worth of reward points from my credit card and went online shopping today. Have LED headlight and turn signals, rear crashbars, module to convert rear signals to running and stop lights, and a new pair of soft lowers coming next week. Also had my fangs powdercoated last week.

    For me its not the look so much as its my girls being comfortable and feeling secure. So a grab handle and maybe a back rest. Okay I’ll have to get a back rest for them as well.
    I like the floor boards you have there. I can just flip them up out of the way.
    Those grab bars as well.
    You have a great looking bike.

    Yup, comfortable and secure.

    That's why I added:

    * Passenger floorboards
    * Adjustable pegs (till they can reach the boards)
    * A removable topcase (on the police radio box rack) with a back rest pad.

    I run the same set up as @Kevm , and will say the floorboards do reduce room for backing up "leg paddling" a bit. I considered switching to pegs, but prefer the security it ( floorboards) gives my daughter.

    Looking at Jed’s floorboards all folded up they don’t look like they will get in the way.

    Folded up, not at all.

    Folded down, just a little.

    Just wanted to verify, you do have a passenger seat behind the police seat right? Moosetang?

    Awesome looking setup, Jed! How are you liking the Hammock seat and backrest?

    Thanks! I have to have a backrest. Had back surgery 30 years ago for two ruptured discs. I can do anything I want to do, I just have to do it differently. Actually that's an Ultra touring seat that I traded for when I bought the FLHT. I've had hammock seats in the past. This one works for me, especially since the hammock is over $500

    Can't believe I didn't recognize that seat. Really thought by now I could tell just from the looks. Im impressed you find it comfortable for long rides and I really have heard many people praise that seat.

    I have found 2 seats locally that are used but like new that I am trying to decide on.
    1) Hammock
    2) Mustang Super tour solo (comes with the passenger seat also). This seat sits you 1.25inches back for a little more leg room.

    Being 6ft tall, I don't really need the extra leg room from the Mustang super tour seat, but I suspect it might be nice, so I am leaning towards picking that up tomorrow.

    I’m a fan of Mustang seats in general.

    Got one on my current Road King and Sportster

    Seriously? My 1200GS, Aerostich R3, BMW Touring boots, Aerostich lined gauntlet gloves.

    Not the answer you wanted probably.

    I have the luxury of multiple bikes. The GS looks good dirty and my Road King, not so much.

    When I did ride Harleys in foul weather, I’d keep a pair of rain gators in my saddlebag. A good rain suit, and some heated gloves. That and a full face helmet pretty much did the trick. Depending on how far/how long the ride was. My commute (remember when we used to do that?) was about 25 mins. Still, the rain gear stays onboard the Road King to this day.
