Hi Karen amd welcome along :D . Lovely part of the world you live in. We rode up through Steamboat Springs and along Trail Ridge Rd up to Estes Park. It was stunning scenery and I remember VERY windy up the top. We stayed at some old house with a trail ride attached that I am sure was haunted :o .
Nice bike the Delux, I did over 75,000k's on my last one and just clicked over 30,000 on the new one, I'm shipping mine back over to America this year for Sturgis.

Really nice, Aussie! I like the wheels on yours. The changes to mine makes it look like a small Road King. I gave up on keeping the white walls clean when I replaced the tires last year. Once I figure out how to upload a picture I'll post one.

I'm attaching a picture of my bike before I got her home.

Nice! Love the look of the solid bags. The white walls are reasonably easy to keep clean, I use straight truck wash and leave it sit for about 5-10 min and then light scrub with a gentle scourer. They say the dishwashing liquid used in the same way works great. I do like the nostalgic look of the white walls on the delux. The wheels on mine are 50 fat spoke from " ride write". I had them fitted before I shipped her over to Australia.

Those are both gorgeous bikes! Far too much chrome for me personally, I hate cleaning the stuff :lol: but I sure do love to look at it!

Thanks for the pics. I like chrome, have a lot of it, polish it once in spring and once in late summer only, I prefer riding it to cleaning it.
