    Cheers and welcome!!

    ps: I surfed your profile and I see you ride a Harley too. What do you have? I have a 2006 FLHP.
    Common sense is like deodorant. The folks who need it most never seem to use it and there's no polite way to tell them.

    Nice. Do you have the King Tour Pak?

    I've done a couple of minor additions to my Police Edition in order to tour comfortably and I'm considering getting a Tour Pak or aftermarket similar to get the extra storage space. If you have the Tour Pak, I'm curious if you find it useful space or otherwise?
