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
