Hey blackbagger, what kind of rims are those? They look great! Not too overpowering, but fit the rest of the bike well.

They're HD Blade 18" rims, front and rear, and are also available in chrome. The Dunlop tires are the same style as stock, but are low profile and are rated at slight less weight capacity at max psi (41). The wheel weights are stick black!

Once the speed is up around 75 its still air....I'm in the pocket. I like looking over the windscreen, not through it. HD has a taller W/S but its not dark smoked like the shorter one. I think you'll need the taller W/S at 15" (light smoked).

Update this afternoon: I do not notice buffeting with a half helmet but notice it with a full face helmet!
Thanks for the info! I think I may be better off with a Klockwerks instead of HD. I just need to try them both out I reckon..and I would definitely want the Dark Smoke as opposed to the light Smoke.

Thanks again!

RoadSofa, that is a fantastic pic! I love it! I hope you have that as the background pic on your computer and have it framed and hanging in your house.

I hope I can get my schedule synced up with my friend who is a very talented amateur photographer and do something similar. I'd love to have a pic of me and my bike in action on a scenic roadway.

I am jealous. You still get to ride while my bike is covered and hooked to a charger. And, the more I see beautiful Road Glides, like yours, the more I want to trade my EG in.

Again, very nice! Thanks for posting the pic!

Just traded in my 05 night train for a 2013 Big Blue Pearl RG this week. Have to wait till they can get the bike in from another dealership. I'll post some pics as soon as I get it. Love the pics here.
