I didn't think I would be able to demo ride a V-Rod because of hurricane Irene, but the weather cleared up and turned out nice the following day. Here are some pics of the event - they had it at Fairfax Corner Shopping Center where the store owner's are rude but the restaurants are pretty good
Volunteers from Fairfax HOG and employees from Patriot HD helped with the event
The big Harley-Davidson truck with all the toys!
2012 Dyna Switchback
Demo riders coming back from their ride
The 2012 Nightrod Special (I wish H-D would change their naming convention)
Okay, just to change it up a bit - I test rode a Ducati Multistrada. We watched a video about their bikes, they gave us free capucino and biscotis, and took us for a nice ride through old town Leesburg. Very nice experience indeed... but I still love my HD!
It started to rain but we waited it out - well worth it since it made for a cooler ride
I bought this Screamin' Eagle 2-into-1 exhaust slip on muffler last year and I finally got around to installing it. Installation was easy and took me about 30 minutes from start to finish. The part that took the longest was removing the old muffler. Tools needed were a 3/4 wrench and torque wrench.
The Nightstick out of the box Part number: 80881-10and muffler clamp.
