I got out for a 85 mile trip today. Feels so good to be out riding again. Ride went great until a rain storm came out of nowhere and caught me the last 5 miles. I guess that's called "Karma"!

Stopped out on a country road near the wind farm for a quick photo today. I've added some new shiny neck covers.😄

Looks good Tom! That wind farm is pretty cool. It goes on forever. I know the first time I rode past it, it was dark out and I had no clue it was there. I couldn't for the life of me figure out what the hell I was looking at!

How hard would they be to fabricate?

Yeah the wind farms are pretty cool if you've never seen them up close. They are HUGE up close. Each blade is about two semi trailers long. When they were building these we would always see these going down the roads on trailers being hauled out to the farms. Massive, to say the least. Today when I was stopped for the photos I could hear them as they spun around in the wind. The country side is so quiet...it was pretty cool to see and hear.

Yea! My uncle actually has a 2014 street glide with the 103ci as well and his (much different exhaust setup) is insane... its the best sounding bike ive ever herd. Its got that thunderous rumble that shakes the ground without being deafening, mine before was just kinda loud like you just herd the pipe, no character or rumble to the note. Now its a good bit better.

And on the fairing, thanks for the kind words! I have quite a bit of time in sanding, painting, and polishing it! it attaches with the memphis quick detach system like the windshields (i swap between) and could fit your bike pretty easy if they make those mounts for it. But if not there are quite a few 1/4 fairings like it and some other varieties made for the HD dynas and FXR's that make the user make brackets and sometimes move the headlight that would probably be able to fit your bike. and it keeps just enough wind off to be comfortable at freeway speeds without feeling like you're going to get ripped off the bike.
