Winter mods

Those of us up north that have to suffer threw the snow and salty roads, what projects do you have planned? I need to get a more comfortable seat for my wife and might swap out handle bars and hand controls.

I put a solid aluminum rear rim on the rear of the Wide Glide.
Also installed a different seat.
Changed the brake fluid front and back.
Changed the fork oil.
I think i am ready to go.

I added a driver's backrest to my Ultra Limited, along with a different brake pedal cover. Would like to add highway pegs, and a couple other miscellaneous parts too. Added a windshield to my wife's Forty-Eight along with front axle nut covers. Just ordered different foot peg mounts for her Forty-Eight too, so I can swap the OEM foot pegs for Tribal pegs. Frustrating that the Forty-Eight OEM peg mounts wont accept most pegs. It was 14 degrees below zero this morning where I am in Minnesota . . . wont be out on the road anytime soon.

I did the stage 1 on my 2017 EG Ultra Limited. V&H head pipes, 4 1/2 V&H Destroyer slip ons, stage 1 intake and dyno tune. It has been too cold(15F this morning) to ride and get a good take on the upgrade.
