  Myself ,I dont think you can go wrong with V & H , they remind me of the early 70's  thrush header mufflers on cars . I put the V & H true duels headers and twin slash ovals 4.5 inch #16767 on mine ,and like the sound . Some people confuse these ovals with the monster ovals there 5.5 inch, and dont sound as good as the 4.5 inch, and the 4.5 is kind of an old school look ,another reason I got the ovals .

With all the changes, I get about 50 mpg at 60 or 65 mph, not sure about before the changes.
As speed goes up after 65, the mileage goes down.
At 75 mph, mileage drops into the low to mid 40's I'm guessing.
In town it's in the low 40's.
I also have a race tuner and the Vance & Hines pipes (Big Shots), the package works well together.
I downloaded the race tuner program from Harley and remapped the ECM with my laptop.
Ride Safe,

Yes the leather piece, Harley only makes the plastic ones for 2008 or later on softail models.
My bike is 2007.
This company also make holsters, shoulder harnesses and lots of other leather goods.

You are talking about the black leather with studs and concho,is the heat shield,right ? If so,I havent noticed those before,just the plastic type that bolt to the rear of the fuel tank and have 2 sided tape,chrome or smoked type.

I bought a heat shield for my 2007 Heritage and they work really great.
They are easy to install and in my opinion look great too.
They take a lot of the oil tank and engine heat away.
The picture is the product I bought, not my bike though.
