two days- then what?

I've got two more days til my new (to me ) '07 Heritage Classic comes in. I bought it on E-bay, great deal from a Stealer, and picked up a warranty since I haven't even ridden the dang thing! Pumped up and ready to ride! So, what is the first thing I need to do to this stock machine?

It's that dark cosmic? blue- I've been riding a pumped-up Sportster for the last 4 years, and my financier (wife) finally gave me the green light for Christmas. Silly girl! She doesn't know that she just sentenced herself to DAYS of me being gone?.......or.... maybe that was the idea?? lol

As mentioned, gas it up and ride it out.

If you are dying to make some mods, you can never go wrong with the big three.

1. Intake
2. Exhaust
3. Tune the computer

Welcome to the RK club. When you get it be sure and post some pictures in the Road King picture thread.
