    Every time I look at my bike I hate the way the fangs look.

    But every time I ride my bike I like the way they work.

    10” freedom shields, a blem, bought on eBay. Little pock mark about the size of a rock chip.

    I pulled the plastic and mounted it. Will report my findings tomorrow after I ride home and back to work again

    First impressions with the 10” screen are mucho positivo.*

    ran it up to 70 in little bursts and no hammering on the top of the head. Will see how it does on the short (12mile) run into work tomorrow.

    You’d think they would at least put a door on the glove box. Does stuff stay put there with it open?

    I’m not a “stuff” guy. So I don’t know. Sometimes I’ll tuck my gloves in there when I’m stopped. But I’d bet nothing stays in the hole.

    Electra glide goodies makes a glove box kit for it... I haven’t bought it, it’s like $175 and it’s not that important to me

    It appears the Electra Glide Revival is using a taller handlebar than the standard Street Glides/EGS, likely the same bar as the police Electra Glide (which even may still be optional on the police bikes).

    Anyone happen to know or able to get a part number for it? I don't see anything similar in the P&A

    Dropped the bike off for its 1k service this morning. Also having em put on the shocks I had from the dyna. Hagon said they’ll fit, might have to up the pre load, but these were already 330kg springs:imaposerso I don’t think they’ll be too soft. Looking forward to a more compliant ride.

    bout to head over and pick it up.

    MUCH MUCH improved with the 13” shocks. Will back off some compression damping as it’s a little harsh, and probably back off a touch of preload.

    even the buffeting has changed for the better, the windscreen is a touch more forward and it makes a huge difference!

    $408 plus tax (on parts) for the service, using Syn3 in the engine, and heavy duty Synthetic gear oil in the primary and transmission

    $65 to install my supplied shocks

    grand total of $494 n change.

    Mine became less sloppy and stiff as the mils piled on. About 20K it became as buttery as any Harley trans will get. Still doesn't like being shifted at lower RPMs and guess it never will. I run 10K change intervals. Just cannot get with H-D's 20K intervals. Do the primary at 5K. Got too sloppy and nasty smelling at 10K.

    Well, put the passenger floorboards, a new grab rail and the passenger saddle on. Waiting on the backrest now. Going to try to get the Daughters to ride with me again.
    Also installed some custom dynamics tail light and turn signals.

    sad story that is hard to share,

    the fella that came out to buy my bike, i picked him up at the airport, got him situated, and led him to the freeway, didnt make it home, something happened and he crashed and passed away about 1/2 way between here and home. RIP Thomas.
