Looks really good. Nice height. I think lowering the tail adds to the illusion that they are taller. Nice touches you’ve done there. I recently put apes on my Heritage and it has really upped the fun...

I hear ya. My SERT is still in my Dyna doing its thing.

I'd only keep the one I like riding the most. Resale means nothing to me. Personally I might lean towards the RK as the 103 is not my favorite motor...although the 6 speed is nice.

At that low...
