FINALLY .... woke the VTX from a longer than usual winter sleep.
I had committed myself to finishing a bathroom renno before digging the bike out.
That day has finally come.

All the usual stuff .... Vance & Hines exhaust, Cobra Light Bar & Cobra Fatties highway bars, Mustang seats & backrests, Cavalry Custom Saddlebags w/Custom homebuilt bag mounts, Kuryakyn Run/Brake/Turn unit, desmogged w/pair valve removed, decapitated air box, Tsukayu fairing, Clocks4Bikes clock .....

If you did Chuck, I for one would be willing to forgive you if you can source me a good used 6-degree triple tree for my 1800 from someone on here so I don't have to bite the bullet and buy new.

Put about a hundred miles on the bike taking the very long way home and then added a couple of goodies and cleaning up some messy wiring. I added eye bolts to the MS Windshield for carrying my bedroll and added a dual usb port on the trunk. Still waiting on Amazon to get here sometime today for the next addition before I head out to work tomorrow.

TWO Frt IN were .007" ; Frt EX was .013" all adjusted.
One Rear IN .007" and Rear EX .013" both were adjusted.
