You guys don't love me anymore?   I have extended forks, 21 inch narrow front tire, Ape hanger handlebars, and my back tire is a dunlop Whitewall.  I have tassles on my grips AND on my levers.  I have highway pegs that have chromed pointed pieces shaped like a .50 cal anti aircraft cartridge.  Oh, and I have a stuffed bear with googles and a little leather jacket tied to the back of the sissy bar.   

Opps, thats not my bike, thats the neighbors dyna Glide parked on my side of the drive while he washes his jeep.   I knew something didn't look right.....
Yep, still riding the old one

Sorry, but I love highway pegs. When doing 700 mile + days, I just got to be able to move my legs.

Oh man you guys are harsh. Again my drivers backrest with highway pegs feel pretty good after 500 miles or so. After all the other half of the category is tourer.
