Welcome Matt, You wrote a very informative description of the LED Lights. Thank-You. Welcome back to the saddle, I hope you enjoy your new ride as much as my wife & I have ours. We have similar riding backgrounds, I parked & did not ride for 28 years for child rearing time.... Got back in the saddle in 2007 on a new sportster & traded up in '09 to our Heritage... My wife is the one that brought up the idea that maybe we should get another bike.... I Love that Woman!!
