I just got off the phone with Ohlins in NC, they confirmed that the set of shocks I was looking at will fit my R and if I have any issues, they'll re-fit on their dime. So I just ordered a set of these.

Damn -- I'd take a ride to NJ for the sole purpose of viewing your bike in person. It's my favorite looking VRod for sure.

New tires!

Threw my new Avon Cobras in the wifey's car and had her follow me over to the hardley dealer for the install. Rode 100 miles to break 'em in, and came home for a couple libations...

Garland HD came by today and picked up my bike. It needs two tires, oil change, and a 40K service. (At 90K, they start over at 50K). The service writer estimates about 4 hours. Since I have a tire & maintenance warranty (lifetime) it'll cost me about $200 as I pay labor for the tires and the extra for the HD Syn.

So far, the service contract has cost the dealer a bit over $10,000. :-)

Drove mine for a nice leisurely ride thru the hills/jungle of Subic bay. Perfect weather, 87 degrees, no rain, slight breeze and had some Spicy Chicken Curry chased down with a couple of ice cold San Mig's at my favorite watering hole.

Here is pic from the shoreline overlooking the bay....

You won't believe the incease in comfort you'll get! I did the Kuryakyn SwingWings and they took riding comfort to a whole nother level....

I'm getting those as passenger pegs for my girl, she's been begging for them for weeks now after I showed her them online.
