Here's my '06 1600 mean streak. PO upgraded lots of stuff on it. Next on the list for me is either some risers to move the drag bars back a couple inches or (ideally, if not far more expensive) replacing the drag bars with some apes for more comfort on long rides through the deserts and mountians of Washington state.

Thanks brother. You had a sweet ride. This is my first cruiser. I’ve ridden a touring bike (Concourse) before this. I’m definitely a convert and a fan. Replacing all the bulbs with LED and adding amber accents now. Loud and bright is a good combo for a motorcycle.

Being seen definitely helps... if they're even looking up from their phones. Stay safe out there bud. I'm all over the place with bikes. Standards, touring, cruisers, adv bikes, dual sports. Unfortunately for me, I dig them all. Currently ride an old Valkyrie and a V-Strom 1000. Miss the Meanie, as well as a few of the others. Currently have a want for a Kawasaki Voyager. Why, I wish I knew. I just do. It's a curse. If bikes still sold like they did 15 years ago, I'd start a small used bike dealership just so I could ride different bikes to get them out of my system.

First of all.... gorgeous bike. It looks like a sweet ride. I'm interested to know what kind of tune you have for the Cobra Slashdowns and Big air kit? I just made those exact mods on my 2005 Meanie and was curious. I'm putting on a PC-V (Power Commander V) and the closest map/tune I could find was [1600 Mean Streak, Cobra Speedster shorts exhaust, Barons Big air kit]. Im gonna test it out this weekend just to see if it works even if the exhaust is slightly different. My only fear is that the shorter exhaust will make a difference because the air is released faster than the longer pipes (slashdowns).
