That's what I was thinking, more legroom. I'm 6ft with long legs so I like to stretch them out or at least have the option. The older I get, the more cramped I get on long rides. My Dyna has mids but I added highway pegs up front.

Following up previous post with some pictures...

Once the engine was free of the frame, it was evident there was lot of leakage from the rocker covers (the oil shows up even more when using flash).







Upon disassembly, it was clear that it was time for new gaskets.





Getting things cleaned up and put back together





Once the rocker covers were reassembled and torqued down, it was time to clean off the oil w/ brake kleen and little brushes. This is a little better than the "before" pics.





On to the wiring harness. It was fun pulling this apart and seeing how the factory wires things up.







And here's the first batch of toys from Paughco
