    Hello everyone! William here from Minnesota. I've been here quite a bit doing a lot of reading and getting some insight on this and that, figured it was time I said hello to all of you! All of you have been a big help during the winter as I did some upgrades and can't thank you enough. The ride is a 06 Hammer, changed out the bars and risers, relocated the license plate to the axel, moved and replaced the rear turn signals, new brakes, oil change. New sissy bar coming from Ginz choppers, the wife can't wait for that! All my research came from here!
    So I'm glad to be here and thanks for all your help!

    The first thing I had to do was make this ride a little more comfortable, so I moved the foot controls forward 2 inches. The next thing to go were the bars. The pull back on the stock bars was crazy huge, they were just to close for my liking. Got the new ones from somewhere, just can remember the site, have it saved on my computer.
    The risers are 4inch from ebay, along with the front and rear pegs, grips and mirrors. The rear wheel had a little wabble to it so I shipped that off to this guy in AZ who did an amazing job straightening it. So all new bearings front and rear, brake pads, and an oil change kit pretty much finished out last winters to do list.
