Hey @bluecollar, did you do the wiring on your build yourself?
Just wanted to recommend a nice little tool I picked up recently and used today to lube my chain: the Tirox Snap Jack. http://townmoto.com/tirox-snap-jack-portable-jack Worked like a charm.
Price drop: $375 shipped.
Still available - $375 shipped in the US/Canada

Oh yeah. I forgot to mention that the weather was fucking amazing.Every. Single. Day.I didn't want to come back.
Nope. They got more Bonnevilles in so I got one of those. Ride was amazing. Great roads, not a ton of traffic (other than LA) and lots of wide open spaces.Lots of pics below so I'm spoilering them. [[SPOILER]] If you guys have any questions about the trip, let me know.
