Default New XCT in Red

In one hour I'm leaving the office to pickup my 2013 XCT. Not just one but two Harley's are being traded in, a Street Glide and a Softail Deluxe. Wifey is going back to passenger status for now. A co-worker has an 05 8-Ball w/ only 6K miles he wants to sell. I may have to jump on that. I've already ordered the low beam HID from Crossroad, spent most of the $500 in free accessories on two pair of upgraded/Kicker speakers and the trunk bag. Probably spend the final $60 on some swag. The usual stage 1 upgrades are in the near future, just not sure which direction I want to go with the mufflers. I need to get more details on just how the shop I'm getting my bike from modifies the stock mufflers and at what cost. Otherwise, probably Witchdoctors or RPW but ultimately it'll come down to whatever is going to best match up wiht the eninge work I'll have done: Lloydz cams and timing gear. Need to speak with ole boy up in Iowa.

Just picked my up in red the other day, dealer threw in a 5 year warranty at no extra charge, might be worth asking for that....

With everything else considered, I'm happy with the three year warranty. Plus, once I do the cams, all bets are off. But thanks for the suggestion none the less.

Now get out there and get those "break in" miles racked up.

Exciting times! Congrats. Watch out for sore face muscles from excessive smiling. The rest of the journey should be pain free.

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Except for the wallet but then again, I spent over $4500 getting two Harley's set up.

If I could get out of work this afternoon, I'd join you for the initial ride, but I got too much piled on my desk.

Congrats! I did something similar a few years ago and have not regretted it one bit. Be prepared to hear some smack from your HD riding friends though...
