Welcome to the forum from SoCal.
Is the Ultra a add in to the stable, or did the FXR get replaced? Just curious. Both are beautiful scooters.
Them double-spoked wheels gotta be fun to keep clean! They sure look great!

Welcome from KY. Oh, yeah, she will be comfy now. Better strap her in cause a lot of women really do fall asleep on an Ultra.

Cheers 1/2 Ton , still got the FXR for now , but it will be getting cleaned up and sold :( I bought it as a wreck from a dealer in Alabama , shipped it home and rebuilt it - here is a pic of it in the US

The spoke rear wheel looks nice but I have trouble with spoke breakage , cleaning is not so much trouble , we don't need to deal with snow etc on the roads down here ......

Nice. I thought the pics from now looked like a longer fork. Does it still handle as good as the stock length fork? Welcome from Illinois and Michigan.

no idea mate, when I got it the front forks were jammed under the front cylinder, had to cut them off with a grinder - the previous owner had hit something head on . I shipped it to Australia and rebuilt it .

Everything from the fork tube forward had to be replaced, had to cut and shut the right hand downtube , welded sleeves in it and replaced the damaged section. The only part that survived was the headlight.
