Winters here, wheels are turning!!

Well, winters here, these are the months I get in trouble as I sit back with a coffee and catch up on my American Bagger/Bagger mags...AND THE IDEAS START TURNING WHICH MEANS MONEY GETS SPENT! Im stretching tanks definately ( already have Bad Dad tanks ) Im thinking rake with 26", and thinking of a custom front nacelle for King if I can do it....Wanna come up with something real unique..I need to go just sit there and stare @ bike see if anything pops into my mellon?

I know we have talked this topic before, but what the hell....SO what are your BIG winter mods?

Pain is just weakness leaving the body!

Once you go Bagger, you don't come back

I'm undecided between stage 1 upgrades or LED taillights on my Ultra.

I'm worried about the excess noise with a new intake and exhaust only because I have some hearing loss in one ear. I have to be on a waiver to fly in the AF. So I worry that the extra noise could damage it more. I did have slip ons on my old Heritage and loved the sound. I wish I knew how much (or if) the extra sound would hurt my hearing.

My 2nd choice is the LEDs. I already have them up front. They're pricey though. Around $500. Plus I stopped at the dealer yesterday and they said it would be 2.5 hours of labor. Wow. That would add $200 to the price tag. Not sure if I could/should stomach that.

Yeah pricey there anything aftermarket or another shop beside HD for service..Harley is off the charts with there labor/ rates..I have found smaller shops to have better/fair prices.
