I'm not a fan of those big plastic number plate mounts Sportsters come with. Side mounted plate is an obvious choice and everyone with a Sportster seems to go with these but I quite like the lay-back top mounted plates that the Lowrider comes with. So I got that Puig Tail tidy and I'm very happy with how it turned out. Pretty straight forward to install, however you will have to drill 2 wholes in the mudguard for the bracket and you will possibly need some trial and error testing with wiring the number plate light. The light that comes with the kit had pretty short wires so I had to extend them but since I'm not going to use the stock bracket I just salvage the wire from there and soldiered the two together. Job done! Much cleaner look. Eventually I will be lowering it as well so the profile and rear view will be much nicer as well!
So I got me some new slipons. A friend of mine had a pair of Vans & Hines Twin Slash Cuts that I couldn't wait to put on the bike. Not very quiet bit bit obnoxious loud either. I got a chin spoiler and a headlight fairing on as well. The do precisely dick when it comes to air flow and aerodynamics but I've always like the look of them.
So I got me a Sporty. Registered 2014. Bone stock. Squeaky clean and done just a little over 4000 miles on the clock. Not a bad score.
So I started my riding adventure 2 years ago on this. A little AJS Daytona 125. Got it bone stock and modified it to imitate, more or less, the Harley Davidson Lowrider S. And since it was build around a Softail type frame I'd say it worked out decent. However there wasn't much I could do to it in terms of power and performance.
