Great job, luv2ridexlc

I think we (Sportster Baggers) are a growing presence in the Sportster world...





I am still considering a trunk for mine, but since I have the '70's era fairing and hard bags, I would probably want to keep in that style & shape, if possible. From what I see of the older ones, the trunks that came on the Dyna touring bikes were smaller and had better profile than some of the monstrous older trunks I have seen that you could just about fit a body in...LOL

Please send pics and riding impressions, now that you are back on the road with new paint and goodies.
