Ha heated grips. I've been using Garbing heated gloves for years, they are tops  :)
With the lack of wind protection on the 13 SERK, especially with 14 apes, Gerbing Heated gloves are not enough in the 20's.  Love the heated grips I added.  Also allows in cool weather, not cold to get away with a light weight glove.

A few more pictures...
How do you like the power duals? I've hears some say they drag easily. I say as long as the floorboards touch first it shouldn't be a big deal.

I Love the power duals! I have not been able to drag them, even in tight cornering. The floor boards touch first...
I have true duals on my other bike (a stage 2 - 2003 road king classic) and the power duals feel a lot more powerful with tons of low end torque. Both bikes have monster rounds on them and the monster rounds get tiring on long trips with the true duals. Not with the power duals. I wear ear plugs on any trips over 100 miles anyway, mostly for wind noise. Can still hear and enjoy the pipes.

Been down to -2c in the UK, and have never had my gloves on the full heat setting. But we don't get to the -6c :)

I'm on the fence between, power duals and true duals. Have read loads of posts, where folks say, they see no difference with low end torque with the true duals. Guess my issue is, I like the look of the True duals better. But I don't want loads of noise, have V&H slash cut ovals on the standard headers at the moment.

I can tell you the true duals will be much louder than the power duals with the twin slash ovals. With monster rounds, true duals give me a headache, not the power duals. And while both will have more low end than stock if properly tuned, you will get instant torque with the power duals. Lots of fun on take off at traffic lights...
You can find a lot of posts on line about the difference between the two.
This is just my own experience.

Forgot to mention that I wear a 3/4 helmet on the highway for longer rides (usually cruising well over 70mph) With a half helmet on, noise is not a major issue in either case (wind noise takes over).  3/4 and full size helmets multiply the drone effect of loud pipes. Think of your head inside a bell...
Well, now I am totally off topic in this thread.

You should get a little more torque out of the power duals or a good 2 into 1.

 So fitted my Haymaker Reflector today. Really pleased, a lot brighter than the Halogen light we get in the UK. Not quite plug and play though, even with the harness you have to buy. In all bikes except the RK, you just unplug the harness and plug in the new one. On the Road King you have to cut the old plugs off, then splice to the new harness.  :) Only a problem in Europe I guess

Where are the pics Rob? My Moto Dynamic unit turned up on Friday. Looks really good quality. I only ordered it on Sunday so it only took 5 days to get here from California which impressed me. Unfortunately I won't have time to fit it for a while due to all the work I have to do on the house but I will post the results as soon as I have it on.
