Wow, it's been a while since I posted an update

For my 2006 Sporty

I installed new swing arm shaft, isolators, and and swing arm bearings
Installed Bitubo shocks
Installed my panniers
Mounted my Yeti jug holder
Added my Hoka Hey numbers to the bike
Activated my Fleet Tracker
And added 1175 miles to the odometer last weekend

For photos check this post

Got two piece pushrod covers installed, lots of drama. Mounted intake manifold and new rear turn signals. Lots more to go yet but getting closer.

Keep rocking Chris, someone has to lay down some miles to make up for my being grounded just now! Wish you the best through the week.
