Nice bike What did you do for a CB antenna?

I've done the same thing to mine and lowered it an inch or so, the rear is already down an inch, the front will get some new Progressive springs this week that will lower it down an inch or so and then all that's left is a shorter black/smoked windscreen and I'll have it ready to cruise..

CB antenna when Tourpak off

Our son and us each took our tourpaks off our 2008 Ultras and I mounted a trucker type cb antenna on a homemade bracket which is bolted on where the bottom saddle bag support is bolted to the bike's frame. I did the same for the AM/FM antenna. Had to add in a cable extender made from a 3 foot piece of rg-58 and connectors to reach the antenna. I also bought and mounted 2 switches to replace the select/up/down and ptt/audio up/audio down switches which were mounted in the tourpak speaker housings. (If you order the switches from H-D, be sure to get the 6 pin Deutsch connectors for the end of the wires and it is a plug and play set up.) Now my betterhalf can once again vary the volume in her headset and talk on the cb.
Good luck with your mods.

I mounted an after market tour pak on my road glide and all of my antennae are in the fairing. Wife gets on tour pak goes on, solo no tour pak. takes about 30 seconds to connect and 20 to disconnect. it makes the bike more flexible and changes the look.

Moving the tour pack forward for solo riding sounds interesting to me. I'm going to check that out for my '09 Ultra. Great looking bike!
