    Default Hello from New Zealand.

    My wife and I have been riding Harleys for 16 years. She has just stopped riding so I now have a 2008 LS3 bike purchased new, showing 600 kms from the New Zealand dealer, a fine bloke. Almost finished modifications, my cow horns from various Harleys, '59 Cadillac tail and indicators, 16 inch ape hangers with 2 inch extensions and my own design exhaust system which is 2 1/2 inch right through. Just making a jockey shift.

    Welcome and a cool looking bike, love the pipes. I guess the low mileage may be because the previous owner didn't know what he was getting into and got scared when he first rode it. It happens. Good for you though. Enjoy

    Thank you Bill, just finished my home-made jockey shift. Works well, two advantages, looks good and lets me keep both feet on the ground while selecting gears. Will try to add photographs. Bill Allen.
