You did? Do tell. I would not have thought that. What did you have?
Oh I had some old junker Kawasaki dirt bike when I was 11 or 12. My dad had(s) a late 70s Honda CX500 that sat with bad gas for too long. We always tried to get it running, but it was never the same
After high school I found an old Honda Silverwing, which was kind a neat bike. Not my picture
Without all the 80's ferring and side boxes it wasn't a bad looking bike. It still is sitting in my parent's back barn, and I still pay the $8 registration on it every year
I have never had my cycle license and every year consider it. But even in a small city in Des Moines, I get cut off or almost run into daily with a 6,000 lb crew cab 4x4 truck. Being just on a 600 lb bike seems like a bad idea . . .
You can ask almost any harley rider what they have planned for the bike and get a list back of $5k+ worth of mods...whether it's stock or already sporting $10k worth of mods.
You also upgraded it to AMSOIL lubricants.
If you go 3" drag bars, then you have to ditch the mustache bar, and that lay-z-boy sofa. Just sayin
What do you guys think about these? Post up some links if you have them handy!

Supposedly this bike has the 1250 big bore kit and n4 cams and more. This sucker will lift the front tire off the ground in 1st-3rd.
I agree about that dang back rest. it would do a lot for the bike if it was removed. The wife won't be riding it till after the baby is born and that'll put us in January. I doubt she would get on it any time before April, too. I'm open to removing the mustache, too!
Those look good! See if there is a Leather Badlander seat for the Sporty. It is a good looking seat, and if momma doesn't ride much, it will work great. I have one, and my wife hates it!
I'm sporting a solo seat...Mustang wide tripper. Wife would probably hate it if she didn't have her own scoot.
Starting to look a little more like a sportster, again.
Nothing wrong with a sissy. I have the quick-detach version, so I can pack for long rides
