    Thanks, Greg. I do enjoy the Bagger. It is a kilt shorter than the K9 and has a significantly shorter rake/trail, so it's quite a bit more stable for touring. The faring really helps knock out wind, I have left it bone stock, with the only issue was a rebuild of the fuel pump because I didn't like how it sounded. Routine 46-50 mpg on the road, mostly 75-80 mph.
    One time I had to warm (3 min./hairdryer) the ECH to start it, so I'll need replace it sooner or later, but that's a drop in the bucket compared to my K9, which remains my favorite.
    The 111 valves are noisy as the dickens, and I plan to try petroleum oil (maybe with a shot of Lucas additive) this oil change to see if that helps.
