My New To Me Harley

As you can see at the top of this site I have traded in my 2020 Low Rider for a 2016 Ultra Limited. I bought a used one because I didn’t want my payments to put outrageous. It only had a little over 9k when I bought it. I just couldn’t get my wife to ride with me on the Low Rider. While it was a fun motorcycle to ride and very fast, I couldn’t ride as much.

It was a tough decision to make due to the huge loss I was going to take on trading it in and did I take a loss… I lost about $10k on that bike, but it was a decision I had to make. I won’t make that mistake ever again.

We love the Ultra Limited. The first thing I did was changed out the air shocks to Progressive 412 Heavy Duty. That made a huge difference since we are on the heavier side of things. I also put a Tall Boy seat on it to get me off of the tank. Now I sit back and a little bit lower now. I just added highway pegs and covers for the tops of my hard bags.

The reason I had to add leather covers to my hard bags is when I took my bike to get new shocks, the didn’t put the pins back in the hard bag to keep it secure. So when I drove off I heard a loud thud and saw my left hard bag sitting on the pavement. Of course, it got all scratched up on the top and bottom. They are going to fix it when they can, so I put on a temporary solution for now.

Next, I want to get the kit so I can remove the pack for when it’s just me riding, but that’s another $500+ for the complete kit. I also will need to change the rear tire soon. I also want to have it repainted to a candy apple red. I kind of get tired of the black paint scheme. Although, this bike is Black Quartz.

I forgot I also added a Captain Itch concealed carry case to my right side hard bag. It is nice. I hope to write more than I have been writing. We just haven’t gone on many adventures yet. But after all this Covid-19 bullshit is over with, we plan on going to Fredricksburgh, TX for some riding and wine tasting.

Have a safe summer and see you soon. If any of you live in the Corpus Christi, TX area hit me up so we can go riding on a Saturday morning. You can email me at sjmobilemediabiz@gmail.com

My New Ride A 2020 LowRider Adventure

2020 HD LowRider

I decided to trade in my 2016 Heritage Softail Classic for something a little more sportier. I actually went in to the dealership to see if they would sell my bike for me. I originally bought the bike so my wife would ride with me, but that never happened.

So when I asked the salesman if they would sell my bike for me, he asked why and I told him my reason. He said why not just get something that I’d just enjoy riding by myself. I told him I hadn’t really thought about trading out of my bike. I got tired of the hit I took each time I traded my bike in. He told me approximately what he could get me for my bike and that my payments wouldn’t start till May 2020.

I told him ok, I’ll bite, what do you got in mind. He showed me a couple 2020 Street Bob’s that I just wasn’t feeling. So we went out back where they had some new bikes that had just been received. That’s where I found her, a Stone Washed White Pearl 2020 Softail LowRider.

I immediately fell in love with a few exceptions. I didn’t like the mid controls, and the handlebars. But I knew I could make a few changes in the near future and everything would be Ok. So now I own her and love riding her, she is fast with that Milwaukee 8.

Stage 1 Upgrade Pics

Nothing like getting your bike upgraded… I had been waiting for this ever since I bought it back in April 2016. I love the new sound it produces, such a low growl, gives me goosebumps every time I start it up.

I dig the new high performance air breather I picked out. About the only complaint I have is it backfires now and then. I am guessing they didn’t get it dial in like they should have.

Well lets get onto the pics…
