A longtime buddy of mine who rides a Heritage Softail called my up and wanted to ride this weekend. Well, he rides it like 3x a year, so take that for what it's worth. He's got skills since he used to be a motor officer, but I really need to get him out on two wheels more often. Anyway, I asked him where and he said he didn't care.
Yesterday we headed up north a bit and rode the Georgia version of The Dragon.
After that run I have come to the conclusion that I need to do one of several things:
C-Start saving $$ for new exhaust and floorboard inserts.
The Roadie was sparkin' and dragin' all over the place. But I did buy the darn thing to ride, right?
Met a fellow R* rider at the small store called Walasi-Yi and was able to finally get my bum on a Road Star with an Ultimate Seat. WAY better than stock and the backrest made it even better. He also had the medium risers so I gotta think the posture and position on his bike would be exactly like mine. His was even a Midnight too.
Trouble is I don't want to buy a passenger seat just to get the backrest for me. BTW
, he's been running a car tire on the back for a while and says he's had no problems at all.
I'm not looking to change my tires, but his seat was fan-damn-tastic. Anyone know if there is an aftermarket backrest set-up that will work with the Ultimate?
