It’s the time of the year when the weather again begins to beckon riders to the great beyond. The hints of spring are beginning to show with floral blooms, green grass, and budding leaves. This is a wonderful sight for most riders because it means they can start getting their bikes ready for the road. In some areas like we live, riders have already hit the roads, exploring the landscape for new sites and destinations.
This is a great time to begin pre-ride maintenance for the long months of riding to come. Along with maintenance we riders also like to personalize our rides to make it stand out in the crowds. I like to add and change my bike from the stock parts to personalize my bike as well. One component I’ve wanted for quite some time were some new slip on’s. I don’t have the money for a full stage one but still want more sound out of my Harley. I think most riders feel the same as exhaust is one of the first items to be changed out on most bikes.
Last Friday when I got home from work Margaret said we needed to head to our local Harley Dealership. I had no idea why but was pleasantly surprised to find she had bought a set of Vance & Hines Dresser Twin Slash Round Slip On’s for my bike! She said I needed them for our upcoming trip. Who am I to argue? Well I didn’t, and went home happily and ready to perform an install.
Obviously this was a perfect opportunity to share the install with readers and viewers on my U-Tube channel. So I made two videos! The first is how to install the Slip On’s, the second is a sound comparison of stock mufflers vs the V & H Twin Slash’s.

In moving forward for spring and summer ride fun I have already prepared a few new videos that will be released over the upcoming weeks! A series of quick reference guides to changing your oil separates a three hole oil change into individual videos for changing the crank case oil, transmission oil, and primary oil. Clutch and Brake handle swap out will be coming in a couple of weeks for anyone that wants to add another personal touch to make their bike, theirs. Another helpful video will be how to cut a motorcycle windshield. It can be difficult sometimes to get the right fit and this video will walk you through the process to do it yourself.
Until next time!
