Rebirth and Re-Energized

Grim V

Saturday night I took Elvis, the "King", out for what I had planned to be a short "shake down" spin. It turned out to be a three hour return to my roots.

As I rode, I felt like I had gone back 10 years in time. I had to look around my immediate area to make sure I was not on my black FatBoy. This Road King Special is so much more agile, quick handling and light compared to my Road Glide and Street Glide. Someone at Harley-Davidson was thinking straight when they released this in 2018.

The new frame and fork design and geometry are really an improvement along with the 114 cubic inch engine. Wow! My motorcycle self is re-energized and I can't wait for warmer weather.

I came home two times and just rode on by past my house for a longer ride. I finally made myself stop on the third pass with much regret.

Now to change out the very ugly air cleaner and exhaust system along with a new tuner. Vance and Hines Raider 450s, Vance and Hines Power Dual header, HD extreme flow air intake and HD street tuner with the Pro auto tuner.

Can't wait...
