The FXTT gets the March '09 cover.....

Yes, that's right......the March '09 Easyriders Magazine. I don't care what you personally think of this publication, they did an undisputed 1st class feature article on my FXTT bike. Plus, they gave me part of the cover to boot, and it's the very first feature bike when you read the magazine.

My good friend Mike Lichter shot this bike in his studio, and he spent hours and shot over a hundred pictures of myself and the bike. Mike is A RULER when it comes to photography, and he made my bike look absolutely fantastic. Mike has shot everyone - Jesse James, Billy Lane, Arlen Ness, Trevelen - you name them, he's photographed them. Thanks Mike, you went above and beyond on all this.

Rich, Bravo! Is that a rear skid shield or cover under the transmission? What is the cylinder on the right side below the transmission cover? Rich

That rear plate mounts and protects the battery. The battery is mounted up under the transmission. I shortened the frame 2 1/2" in the rear legs, and raised the tranny up 1". It's about a 1/2" longer WB than a Sporty now. Shotrening the frame also raised the bike about 1 1/2", too.

That aluminum finned cylinder under the tranny end cover is the oil cooler. It was a power steering cooler that the off-road truck guys mount on their frame rails. It'll hold about 3/4 of a quart of extra oil.
