One thing we've been hearing is we need more content geared to women: bike features, events, riding shots, tech, etc. Females are gaining more ground in the Harley world, and they're not just sitting on the back of bikes, they are riding, servicing and customizing their own rides. After talking with a few women riders and asking what they would do to their bikes, looks and comfort were at the top of the list.
One of our friends Marlena, AKA Marnie, has an '08 Deluxe that's pretty much bone stock, except for the Vance and Hines pipes, air cleaner and Fuel Pak we installed in the Vol. 40 No. 13 issue of HOT BIKE. A while back Marnie was riding with one of her friends who also had a Deluxe and she noticed that her friend had relocated the license plate underneath the tombstone taillight. The plate sat closer to the fender and looked really clean. So after asking her friend and doing some research, Marnie found the SoftBrake kit that would mount her license plate under the taillight. She also noticed that the company had brake and shift levers that she liked, so she placed an order for everything. Here is a look at what she got and a few install photos.
