        Sometimes I wonder if I shouldn’t have just bought a street glide lol.
        now that I finally have it pretty well how I want, the double din head unit in the fairing crapped out on my yesterday and it’s due for top end work soon.
        Seems like it never ends

          Why would it need top end work? Does it smoke, run bad or make noise?

          It’s an 05, and like most 05’s it has a sticky valve. I’ve freed it up a couple times and it runs good when it’s warm but surely all that stress has caused premature wear in the cams, rods and lifters.
          When I finally do the valves and guides I’ll do everything at the same time. High and long cams, heavy springs and new valves.

              SOUNDS LIKE "I NEED TO GET A HARLEY OR I WONT FEEL ACCEPTED" SYNDROME. a common affliction that affects many americans in the wallet area. The only real cure is to purchase one, and that does not work in all cases, sadly.

                No, it’s not like that at all. I love the Roadie. I’ve had two and they are fantastic, reliable bikes.
                However, I have never been overly fond of soft tails.

                  never been overly fond of soft tails?, thats a HD thang, or hidden swing arm suspension members? i think shocks are uglee,and get in the way of bags. I myself am partial to the HD softails, i think a 2 tone blue and white is like a phukin thing of beauty, and the HD CROSSBONES is my favorite HD, but i wont buy one, im too old now. except the rear fender department at harley did not "get the email" that it was supposed to look like a 1950's era bike, and they put a 1970's rear fender on them, WTF?
