Default Just installed a batwing

Well it's like 25 degrees out so I didn't road test to see how it does with highway wind. But i got it mounted. Went with the trigger locks so I can take it off. It'll mostly just be for longer rides. Now I just have to get it painted and pinstriped.

I will tell you this, if you're thinking of one, be prepared to mess with it for a while. It takes some wiggling to get it to line up well.

Love the Highball... Fairing isn't for me though.

Hardball costs 5 grand more, doesn't come with a fairing, doesn't have white walls or the white on the tank. So lots of reasons.

Best I got right now, from the front, I'm a little under the weather but I'll get some better pics after I paint it anyway.

Not sure why so many guys have such an aversion to windshields and fairings. It's so much nicer at 70. Plus it has quick release mounts so comes off in like 10 seconds for when I'm just cruising around town.
