History
I was in the market for a new bike, looked at many and was heading towards the all black RG and wife talked me into the CVO. So happy she did. Not ever seeing the color in person, as I ordered overseas; I was a bit nervous about it. I could not be happier with the color combo.
2012 Harley Davidson RGC (Blk/Wht)

Modifications

Drivetrain
All factory stuff for today...
Interior
Changed out the stock air filter housing for this one in order to fit the lower fairings. Not installed yet but in the garage are the Jackpot headers all stainless ceramic coated and the ProTouring slipons in chrome with the carbon fiber band. I am using the Power Vision for a tuner, tuned by FuelMoto.

So these things are cosmetic and I really like the looks of contrast cut, so I did the following:
RSD Clarity derby cover
RSD Clarity cam chest cover
PM horn cover
HD Head bridge
Brake and clutch covers by Covington's
PM Air Cleaner
Gauge bezels
Arlen Ness grips
Yaffe Ignition cover
Exterior
Klockwerks 8" screen, OK it does not do much for blocking any wind and I had the Madstad (worked great). I love the looks of the Klockwerks and probably will never change it again. I just dont like th elooks of other shields.
Audio
Progressive 944's on the rear and Progressive Monotubes hlding up the front. I went with the standard height and left the black clips off. Leaving the clips out yielded a little over 1" drop out front. While I was doing the front I decide to change out the sliders and fork tubes, why not right? I have the standard spring rate for the 944's, which I find to be too stiff and will likely change out the shocks one day for either Ohlin's or JRI's.
Suspension
I have color matched lower fairings and a color matched razo tourpak. I changed the grips to Arlen Ness along with the floorboards. To give me more room on the left board I put extended shift levers on from HD.
I put some DayMakers on and really what a difference, well worth the dollar to candle power. The seat has been changed out to a Mustang seat with a backrest. I am overall pretty happy with the seat and can ride pretty long without any major discomfort. It may go in one day to get modded with some memory foam, but time will tell.

And not so typical of a HD rider, but I use a full one piece riding. It is made by Aerostich and is super comftorable, weather proof and so quick and easy to get in and out of. I can quite literally be ready to go in about 1 minute and out of the suit in even less time.
Wheel and Tire
The bike came with the IPOD - cool
I also have a Garmin Nuvi navigation.
I have hard mounted the PV with an Iron Aces mount which I quite like.
