    I have a 03 Fatboy, tank is my Avitar. It's built a little with a 95" set up, 10:1 pistons, S&S 570 gear drive cam, Vance and Hines Big shot longs for pipes, race tuner and Wild ones RKII bars and mustang seat...

    Wife has an 07 883 Low sportster, one year old April 15 with just over 10,000 miles on it.

    I am thinking about getting an 09 FLHX Street Glide:)

    I have looked at the Fatboy's but have not bought yet, at 6'10" tall I need a Large bike and don't want to look like I belong in the circus on a small bike, any suggestions?

    I would sugest you sit on a bunch of different Harleys if that is what your interested in. However I feel you will have to look at a floor board relocation kit to move them forward some on just about any of them. I am 6'2" and if I was any taller, I would have mine moved forward, and that goes for just about all the Harleys....I like leg room...

    The Dragon

    My Brother live in Oak Ridge and teaches as well as rides every chance he gets.

    He's trying to get me and my buddies to ride down.. 1000 miles from NH to do the Dragon.. Have you done it?

    I have the video and looks like a nice ride.. The 11 mile stretch of road with 318 turns on US Highway 129, which crosses the Tennessee and North Carolina state lines I guess it's very popular site for motorcyclists and g-machines.

    Nice bike. I'd like to eventually get a street glide. My neighbour got one at the end of last year. 08 with the 96 and 6 speed. Real nice bike.

    Myself currently I have a 06 sportster 1200 custom. Some chrome and set of andrews N4 cams have been added.

    The Dragon is part of US129 as it goes accross Deals gap from Robinsville NC to Tn near the foot hills parkway.

    It is a great ride, I usually only ride it the weekdays. On the week ends it gets insane with the wana be racers on the crotch rockets.

    It is a great ride though, we usually go over via the dragon and drop down a bit and take the Cherahola skyway back, another great ride.

    Nice ride, those 1200 are very quick especially with a hotter cam like you have.

    I am really hoping to add the 09 street glide to my stable. I just love them with the new engine and trans. I would have them make it the 110 inch before I brought it home :sifone:

    Running an 03 Ultra Classic. She doesn't get much love these days since I always have my 6 month old with me (which makes up for the lack of riding time).

    I'll try to get some pics up of our run to Rolling Thunder last year.

    Dieseldad97 I now know why.

    I ride an '04 Heritage Softail. I do like the twin 88 and the power it gives. Alot better than my old Shovelhead. I'll try getting some pics of her whenever I get my lazy ass off the computer.

    Side note: Anyone with a Softail ever had their fork turn out on them? Those bolts HD installed from the factory will break. Check yours!!! Just a heads-up!
