Here is my winter project, It's a 08 FI getting a full Speedstar Stage III Kit, and a Star Glide Conversion.
It's the only pic you get until I fire it up this weekend....hehe

I spent Mardi Gras day (holiday down here) with 5 close friends on a 2 tank ride up to Red Bluff, MS. Nice rolling hills with plenty of twisties, very rare in these parts. Warm, sunny day, good friends, good BBQ, great bikes (2 R*s, 2 Harleys and a VTX18) made for one of the best Mardi Gras I can remember, although there are a few I can't.

Thanks, Sis!

OK, Pigpen now I'm very intrigued!




I'm working on the upper brackets for the venture bags. I can't use the Venture upper brackets with the Roadstar's Quick Release backrest system.

What a saga this has been for you Jason. Good luck brother! You're getting closer.
