Replaced the fuel filters today. Look how dirty the old filters are compared to the new filters. That's about 22-23000k's worth the dirt in there, they don't look as bad as the first time I replaced them though. The first time I replaced them they were blocking the fuel supply and causing the engine to stumble under heavy throttle twisting. I have since relocated, so the fuel I'm getting now must be cleaner.

Slightly off topic but I don’t care.

Congradulations, was recently blessed with my fifth great grandchild Emmett, with a sixth due soon. Enjoy the little one, they don’t stay small for long.

I have utilised an old R-jays tank bag I had in the shed for when I don't need the big gear bag. Its mounted the same way as the big bag, so it only takes about 5 minutes to change over. Very handy little day bag and I don't have to fiddle around taking the OEM tank bag on and off when I want to fuel up.

Sunday ride around the hills.

I haven't updated this thread for awhile.
But I have added some wind deflectors for my hands on those cold mornings, because I'm going soft in my old age. They aren't designed for Harleys hand controls so a bit of cutting and drilling was required to make them fit. I don't use the stock mirrors so I used the mirror holes in the lever perches to mount them.
