Well, I have been pondering a new bike for next year. Looked at a few, rode a few. I like my roadstar better. I have decided to keep it and spend some money on cosmetics to make it my own. Internally wired apes came on bike. Installed a batwing already. Ed big touring seat. Bassani true duals and slash cut down mufflers on order. Softail conversion brackets here already. Does anyone know if the new style Harley stretched bags will clear the 3" mufflers? I would prefer the slightly stretched down bags, no stretch out and no stretch back must be the new style bag.

I will also be replacing the intake manifold and rebuilding the carb. Also got a heated jacket liner that plugs into battery tender wire, it's awesome.

I would consider the truck light LED headlight too if you ride at night any... i'm sure we can come up with other stuff to help you spend that saved money on too.

Thank you, my headlight sucks but I don't ride much at night so it is currently not high on my list to replace. Anyone know of filler panels that fit between Harley bags and fender? I'm using the softail conversion brackets.

Your Headlight is on ALL THE TIME and is one of the main things that cause you to be seen even during the day. The Trucklite LED is HUGELY bright and I would consider a life saving device, not a luxury device. JMPO Besides that, it will lower the amperage use to allow you to use that fancy smancy heated jacket liner without having to upgrade your electrical See, Im actually saving you money

Cike, is this what you're referring to?

Also, is there something others have found that works well for the stock passing lamps?

Might have to get myself something for Christmas.
