Quoted from Gryszzz:
I'm thinking since I've ALWAYS wanted a Harley, if I get anything else I'll just be regretting it. But is it like cars, where the Japanese ones are just generally better built? Hogs are more maintenance I would think for sure. But that's part of it right, kinda like pinball?
So besides a Sportster, what other models might a po boy be able to afford?
I never liked HDs. To me they looked like old man bikes. I am a old man(50 in September) but I didn't want a old man bike. I had a Yamaha Warrior and I loved it but one day I went into a HD shop to ask some questions about a bike I bought to resell and I saw the CVO Breakout and I fell in love. The bike was 26000 and wound up being 32000 all done. I mentioned it to my Grandfather and he snuck over there and checked it out and handed me a check for more than half because he liked it so much. HD gave me a 2 year warranty, that is it. No service policy no nothing. The bike had a oil leak and when I showed it to them the guy said that was a SEEP not a leak and the warranty wouldn't cover it. Of course, now that the warranty is out it is a leak. They will fix what they have to and nothing more. I only have 5000 miles on the bike and its a 2013 because of my grand daughter taking up so much of my time and I wag my shop dog back and forth since she got run over. I ought to sell it but I cant because of my grandfather. I do get lots of stares and thumbs up WHEN I ride it though. Oh, other than the leak I have had no other problems with it.
