I picked up my new FLHXS about a week ago but wasn't able to ride until this weekend. I had the front end lowered by 1", and had chrome front forks covers installed at the same time. Rear of bike is lower from factory. It's black with a black painted inter-fairing, looks great. I like the vent below the windshield, it does cut down on buffering but doesn't eliminate it completely, works for me. Will post photos as soon as possible. Wow, what a sweet ride! More power, navigation is a big plus, boom audio is very clear at highway speeds. HD describes the Special as it's hotrod version of the Street Glide. Feels and rides much better than my 2011 SG. Adjustable shocks are superior to my old air shocks. I can't wait for a road trip which I won't be able to do until March due to office workload. I should be able to get in weekend rides weather permitting in the meantime.
