i noticed this only when i saw the HD bikes.even our bikes were the same when bought.all these geniune harley spares cost a fortune.
so it just doesnt end with the purchase of a bike.
also we have the screamer eagle exhaust which really scream alot
the company exhaust are very meladious.

I gotta disagree with you on onething...FXDL (Low rider) doesnt have the chrome front forks and yours has , also FXDL is the only bike where they make that mag wheels which kinda sucks compared to the chrome laced wheels but hey its a personal preference (dont pin my ear to the wall on this)

I'm posting the pic of my 09 FXDC. I purchased it as stock from Dallas HD and yes a few months later and few thousand miles on it i've customized it to an extent. I still havent finished it fully customizing it. Trying to make it one of a kind...
I'm posting the pic of my bike for all the HD lovers and just how you can customize it.

My wallet is getting lighter day by day for doing this but hey in the end when I feel there is no bike like mine then all the pain/money is vanished

I still got few mods to be done like
Custom Paint work
Custom wheels
A big bore kit (may be a 103" or 110") depends on the money that i'll be left with.

I'll upload a few now and will upload some more again

hey why not screamer eagle exhausts yet?we both share the same headlamps.

i realise & understand that these spares cost you a fortune.

cautious warning:smoking of cigarette is injurious to health

one thing i like about the US version harley is the indicators are always on.i doubt that is going to happen with the indian lot.

I dont have a screaming eagle exhaust bcoz of the following:
My motor is 96" and the to change the exhaust from the stock to SE slip on or any other exhaust you need to change your air filter to stage I.

This is the basic package where you go for a stage I air filter (139$) or a (SE heavy breather-249$) coupled with SE slip on (249$) or if you want to change the whole exhaust you are looking at (500$ give or take) and you need to have a power commander/dyno jet bcoz you need to remap the fuel system coz you are going for a different exhaust/air filter...

The whole process would take you around 1500$ including parts & labor...and i'm saving money on it

If they have started I wanna become a member in HOG chapter. I heard Bangalore will get one dealership so I'd love to become a Banglore HOG.
