I'm diggin' the ride!  I trust we will get a closer look at the MITM soon!

 :2vrolijk_21:

May go back and forth.  Road King will definitely be there.  I'd like to get the old FXR out in the crowd for a day also.  They all need their turn  :2vrolijk_21: .

My God it's hard to believe this thread is 10 years; or will be this fall.  That's how long ago I started the parts collection process to build my Road King.  It's been over six years since the bike was "done."  Done as in just the way I wanted it.  Nothing left to do to it.  Just ride and enjoy it.  Yeah, right :huepfenlol2: .

Most have done just that though.  It hasn't had regular changes and it's required almost no maintenance.  In the just over six years it's got just a little over 26,000 miles.  So not a lot.  But it's also always been one of two or three bikes.  The Road Glide is still the bike that knocks down longer miles.  So though not a lot it's not suffered for riding either.

Here was the bike shortly after its first fire.  When it was done, done; just as I wanted it with nothing left to do or change.  Just right and just going to ride it and enjoy.  It was (and is) a good looking bike.  Was also a tremendously fun frame up every nut and bolt project.

Some time after that the bike got a late model Razor tour pak and hardware mounted on the old pre-2004 tour pak frame.  Used that frame so could stitch up the 2000-2001 SERG side covers for the tour pak frame to match the seat.

The pak looks great on the bike and the extra storage is handy.  USB port inside gets used a lot.....

Then one of the saddlebags got the slightest of dings.  Just a tiny divot that no one but me would ever find without standing on their head and using a mirror.  This, of course, was catastrophic.  Or it was an excuse to get a set of stretched bags painted up.  I liked the new look a lot; especially with the tour pak.

However.....   The Fatcats under the square bags never bothered me.  Under the extended bags the whole asymmetric look just bugged me.  The longer it went to more bugged I allowed myself to be (to generate the excuse to do something to the bike).  I was also just getting tired of the loudness of the Fatcats; so needed the excuse for that reason too.

So while tending to a small primary leak that had shown itself a couple weeks ago went ahead and changed the exhaust.  Huge thanks to some of the Brethren here who helped out tremendously with take off parts.  Inexpensive parts are always a wonderful thing.

Here it is with the S&S Powertune (I think that's right) duel head pipe (with a crossover) and a pair of new take off slip-ons from a Street Glide.  I really like the big beefy looking tips on these slip-ons too.  Very pleased with the appearance and the impact of the change.  And now it's no longer asymmetric :drink: !

The bike has also picked up a color matched rear Brembo caliper and bracket in the intervening time.  The Garmin mount from whatever bike it was that had it windshield mounted has been added to this bike's windshield also (and this works surprisingly well).  But these are the larger changes to the bike in the time since it went live.  By my standards that's not really too bad.  However....

Man these mufflers are quiet.  I wanted much quieter.  I really did.  From the rear right behind the bike you can't hear it but standing beside the bike you can actually hear the engine mechanicals!  Don't think I've ever had that before.  This engine sounds way better than I expected it to  :huepfenlol2: .

The bitch is quiet though...

Definitely preferring the new rear view.  Now its winter project can be new baffles from GMR for the mufflers.  Will go with the small 1.75" versions.  Then the bike is done; really done, with nothing else to ever add or change.  Just service it and ride.  Really  :2vrolijk_21: .

Travis owned the SERK license plate for a long time.  I grabbed it after knowing it was available again.  So now the three plates are SERK, SERG, and FXR2 all side by side.

Took the bike out for a quick 100 mile ride after finishing up this afternoon.  It's such a difference on the road.  Was running 90 or 95 thinking I was doing 70 because of the sound difference.  Can hear so much more of what's going on.  That includes a 4th gear "sing" I never knew the bike had.  Under a load above about 2200 4th gear has a definite voice.  It's not worrying but its definitely there.  Never heard that before tonight.  Also had to think for a moment after getting off the bike about what was different?  My ears weren't ringing!
