Yep, I just pulled off my Coperdawg Sportscreen and put my CB mini back on along with my ProjektD hand wings, and got my Stich out, winter and cooler temps is a coming...  :(

Don't rush it J! There's still some fine weather to enjoy, at least around here. Low 70's and sunny ALL week here.    :)

Agreed C, the high temps are still quite nice in the PNW Falls too, it's the low temp's for the morning commutes that require a little more wind/rain protection...  ;)

Jim, did you use Rivco pegs? Where/how did you mount them? Pics?


Yes, I used the Rivco pegs with these clamps-  http://www.amazon.com/BkRider-Black-3-Piece-Clamps-Harley-Davidson/dp/B007KPTDV0/ref=sr_1_34?ie=UTF8&qid=1373552137&sr=8-34&keywords=7%2F8+black+clamp    Here's a couple pics of the location on my '08-

How is the heat, with your legs in front of the vents?  I've stretched my legs while riding, and found that the heat coming from the vents to be too much for hiway pegs to be useful.for me.  Mine is and 08.  tp

I've never had any heat problem on this bike. The Area P full exhaust was on it when I bought it and I think that is the difference from stock. There is no cat on it to hold heat. My old C-10 was much hotter. I haven't really felt any heat running up my legs.

+1.  Have them on all my bikes.  It eases the tendency to grip too tightly, as well as lessening the vibes, especially on the Dyna.

I removed all my middle fairings last night to see what it would take to move the Rostra CC to the right upper fairing area because I so want to install some Canyon Cages and put on highway pegs.
I guess I will not move the CC and not install the Canyon Cages. :(
So I'm putting it all back together.

So no tip over protection, or are you going with Topblock?



I took my Aeroform helmet locks to the locksmith and she re-keyed them to my saddlebag key. A well spent $20

I installed Murph's wedges, since after my last ride I had sore wrists and my elbow ached.  I forgot to get a fenda extenda while I was at it so I get to order again!  I think lots of little packages over time is more fun that one big package all at once.

Today I made a custom black cover for the ugly nut holding the left side of the canyon cages, Also painted the allen bolt heads on the middle mount black & installed some plugs in them to clean up the look. I also fabricated extenders for the Rivco pegs that bring them out a little over an extra inch.
