"HD Mirrors w/ LED turn sigs (flipped - eliminate OEM Turn Signals)"

I'm doing this to my Street Bob next week.

Your bike is going to be sweet!

If I wanted all the comforts of home, I would just stay there.

Thanks! That's actually why we were mocking up the bars, to make sure the mirrors would clear the tank at full turn.

So...do you actually have time to ride it in between adding things?

Hehe, yeah.. But at the moment I don't trust the weather in CO enough to ride it to work, and I'm working most of the time so it seemed like the perfect time to get it all done. Bike should be ready late January and it should be late March before I can use the bike for commutes, but I'll be riding from late March to late October - early November.
