Hopefully it has the adjustable shocks, so you can just crank it back up a bit.

If you take that seat to a shop and have some normally-shaped foam installed, you'll have enough 'leather' left over to make something 'cute' for the GF to wear...

I was thinking the only place I'd take that seat is a beach bonfire.

There are stock seats and Hd's Sundowner model readily available on ebay.

Mustang makes a nice model but I don't feel like spending that kind of dough on a used bike.

He was the CAUSE of the tank swelling, out in the garage huffing gas 6-8 hours a day.

His "BagelHead" is actually an imprint of the gas tank filler.

I'm thinking about getting a personalized plate that says HERPES.

I mean, it is a FX STD.

Buz has a unquenchable desire to own a Nazi beanie helmet, conchos and those little pants stirrups or whatever they call them.

nice bike, i'm not sure how you'd go about lowering a softail either. The gas charged Showa's under the frame are adjustable for compression so I suppose if you set them all the way soft it would lower the bike, maybe a shortened swingarm? Shorter fork tubes maybe? There doesn't appear to be a factory lowering kit available like on the Dyna's..

I'd go back to the original shotgun exhaust and knock the plug out rather than screw around with baffles on those, that's what I do on mine and it sounds perfect. Stock appearance, no popping or banging, no tinnitus-inducing "Harley Rumble" just a little louder and better flowing than stock. Ditto on the seat
