Well, if that's the case - get a 2013 CVO in August 2012 and get no payments for six months.....

That's cool, I should be done adding mods to mine by 2013. Now excuse me while I go order something from Zanottis.

I have also heard of the new fairing but my connections tell me we could see it offered on some CVO bikes as early as next year. The fairing will also contain many new electronic toys but I am sworn to secrecy.

Also, they are testing water cooled 103" engines in trikes at the desert test track.........the air cooled, low horsepower, days are numbered..

I personally cannot wait for a bike that will keep up with the new Gold Wing or new 6 cylinder BMW that are on their way next year. Love my new Ultra but I will never turn down more power if it were available from HD. No such thing as too pretty, too fast, or too much money, right?

There will be an outside temp sensor that controls a shutoff valve so the coolant will bypass those regions on warmer days.
And, it will be about as accurate as the air temperature gauge in my batwing fairing...

I did read a story about the HD stock and where do they go from here. It states that HD need to re invent itself again to draw in the younger riders. Seems they are worried that us old farts are not going to carry the stock back to pre 03 numbers. Might mean a hydro glide or something that most of us will hate.

I guess they could just drill all the way through and use ugly bolts and nuts, or big wood screws. What's wrong with well nuts? They work fine and are easy to replace.

The louvered fairing is to bring air down to the DUAL catalytic converter and cool the radiator. I stayed at a Holiday INN last night.
