    Gidday Steve ... you may have done this already , spoke about your shocks ... but how are they settling in , you did the fronts as well is that right ... at the time did you get them done at seperate times so you could gauge the difference or were both front and back done together .

    Also noticed from your pics you got the stabliser ... did it make a difference and are they worth getting for the newer touring models ... i have the 17 Road Glide Special

    Had a few seats re trimmed for looks and comfort ... it's a great first mod to personalize your bike. Cheap to.HD Forums Australia - 20141103_143243.jpg

    Yeah getting the seat right is very high on my list. It's very close, I think I just need to get used to the slightly different feel.

     Hi mate, I got both done at the same time and yes still very happy with the setup. I have been playing around with the rear shocks quite a bit trying to get the right amount of preload and adjustments. It will always be a bit of a compromise when dealing with such a heavy bike. If I bump up the preload it becomes a bit firm but definitely handles the corners better. For a softer ride I back it off a bit but I can notice it when pushing it a bit. It tends to get a bit of head shake which can unsettle it a bit. When the preload is firmer the shakes go away but you feel the bumps more. I have tried to get a middle ground and it's still good. Unfortunately the front isn't very easily adjustable, but I can take it back to the shop and he can change it. 

    The stabiliser was on my 14 model and if I'm honest it didn't feel like it did a lot. I did however only have the front one and I reckon with both it should make a noticeable difference

    Had my Brawler done by John Moorhouse (Ergo seats) in Alexandra Hills, it came wrinkled from new, and I just didn’t want to argue with HD Australia about it......gotta agree that modifying saddles is the go.

    The red stitching really sets the seat off with the paintwork OD!

    Yeah he’s very good Steve but your saddle looks perfect too. Thanks steelo I’m pretty happy with It.....I did see a thread on here somewhere about another bloke with a brawler that was also wrinkled but HD just don’t want to know about them. So this not only fixed it but made it custom and it also matches my King......win, win, win!

    Yeah I like the double stiched diamonds, my bike is the black pearl and in the light the blue really shines through. Can't really see it in the photo but the stitching is in dark blue.

    Geez ... good to hear John Moorhouse .. { Ergo Seats } ..  is still at it , had some work done by him a couple of decades back when he was down in behind Peter Gardiners motorcycles at Capalaba ... Fate is a funny thing , had a mate ask me about a seat upholsterer just last week and I couldn`t remember his name and I get online for the first time in a few weeks and here you go .
