Rode her to Vegas. Only about 300 miles but glorious despite the low miles.

Glad you had a nice ride.  As mentioned, it's also 300 miles more than me as well.

World of difference between the C14 and my old Electra Glide

300 miles=plenty of 'Expedient Travel Tariff' potential as you were exploring those differences!! Especially on those nice long sweeping curves on the way up there.

Went for a ride this weekend and put on a little over 800 miles. I love the performance of this bike but I definitely have some comfort issues to deal with.

Gotta get higher handlebar.  Trying to decide which route to go. Might make my own...

Larger windshield on the short list. I hit a swarm of bees about 175 miles out of Vegas. I had guts and bee parts covering the outside of the windshield,  the inside of the windshield, all over the outside face shield of the helmet, the built in sun shade of the helmet, my gloves, jacket, everywhere. It was a real mess.

I think canyon cages would be good, additional peg locations may be nice.

And a throttle lock.

Biggest complaint I had with the oem bars was the way they turned my wrist.
Still running the oem windscreen?
I understand the cages for tipover protection but are Ronnies pegs not enough to stretch out a bit?
I've got both a Throttlemeister and an OmniCruise. I use the Omni more.
When are you going to move the topcase over the passenger seat so we can get full use out of that 'big rack'?  :)

Wow- that is a long ride!  Makes my little 60 mile ride yesterday and 50 mile ride today seem like nothing.

Yeah, I was hit with some insects this weekend for the first time this year... I dread what is coming.  What sucks is when it is hot and you need MORE airflow, but then hit a bunch of insects.

Go for it!  Canyons are a good investment.

It rained, I worked, no riding.  Ditto for the rest of the work week.   Hope all have a great week.   tomp

Better be a damn good piece of pie. The Club wasn't that good.

Nice little ride!
I'm with ya on the bigger windshield.
I bought my risers from AST(took way to long to get here and they were not painted and only received half of what I ordered ) they work well with the stock bars.
Canyon cages allowed me to put some highway pegs that allow for a good stretch on those long rides.
