Owned a couple of Harleys this being my second one. It's a 2007 which I bought new in spring 08 (first new bike for me) and since then has been slowly modded to it's present state.

Standard 2007 sb






Where mines at now..to much to list up but main things are changed the wheels to black rims, rear being a 200 conversion using the xbones rim. taller apes, lowered suspension front and rear plus lots of dechroming and a newer style chopped fender. Most recent was a cam upgrade but can test it out due to the weather.Bikes not mollycoddled,used most every day and all weathers up to a couple of months ago when I bought myself an Africa Twin for a winter hack.

Nice,where in Sweden are you ? Wrench Monkey's in Copenhagen do some nice stuff if you're close to the bridge ! :thumbup: ( Wrenchmonkees.com - Home )

I'm flying to Kastrup Friday morning. At the moment apparently, flights are being redirected to Gothenburg because of heavy snow. So I could possibly end up in Sweden for the weekend. :(

Don't worry I'm taking thermals for my thermals then more thermals over that ! :thumbup: ( And that's only 'cause I'm staying in the Kobenhaven Missions Hotel. :D:D:D )

If I get time (leaving lunch time Saturday) I'll have a walk down to Wrench Monkey's and get some photo's.

It looks mean that bike.. I'm liking your good quality snowy photos on the forum. I remember seeing a Harley in Greece, he pulled up and camped next to us, not sure what model it was, but instead of the monkey bar things, he'd fitted (or it had from stock) short sports bars and it looked rather good (to me anyway). Not sure how comfy it was...

Not surprised he had short sporty bars on it..if it's the bike in the pic it's a Sportster ..used to have a Sportster XL1200R before the Street Bob..was a good bike. Girlfriends got one too and she loves it.

@ alias..thats cool..keep on rockin' the ol' Harley :thumbup: I enjoy the AT too, especially when the road runs out. It was sort of cheapish to buy and cheap to run ie a set of knobbies cost less than the back tyre on my Street Bob now I've converted it and looks ok with panniers, not ok on the SB as I wanted a plain stripped down look..bit raw so to speak. The AT was what I wanted to fill the space, bit pointless buying another road bike. My mates here who all ride Harleys haven't taken it too bad, they're still speaking to me *lol* but in general the Harley brotherhood here scorn on jap bikes, seem to forget what they had before they climbed onto the stage :D

BUT I know one thing..it's a keeper is the Bob :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

It's been off the road a while but got it back just before new year :p Front wheel replaced and SE204 cams in :D

First long ride yesterday, bit chilly at around +1 but good to get in the groove again. Mate came out and joined me for a quick spin on his Night Train.
