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?

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.
