Only used one I saw at dealer in 2010 was because of terminal health issues. Other than that, the TG's don't stay on the showroom floor for long.

About a month after we bought Vesta her '09, we ran into a couple at a local bike night. Hubby had just bought his wife an identical trike. swapped E mail addresses. When we got back from vacation we E mailed the other couple to see if they wanted to go for a ride. HE E mailed back they had sold the trike, wife really didn't like driving her own and was going back to the back seat. Expensive lesson!

I just got a 2011 Tri-Glide, haven't really had the time to get a good picture of it yet to post. Problems..yes...mine leans about 1 inch to the left. I have done some research on this and it is a problem from assembly. It is not a real problem according to HD to fix, the only problem is getting somone to fix it. My dealer told me it was going to take at least a week because they have never done this before or even seen it. I had to call HD myself, talk to a rep, get a ref #, and have them call the dealer not once but twice to get this scheduled. It has been a hightmare trying to work with my dealer on this but finally have it scheduled for 12-5-11. HD has to teach the techs how to do this repair......this is really reassuring.....I haven't even made my first payment yet....as far as the trike...I love it....getting it worked on, even under warranty....this is a problem ....HD is only giving them 1 day to complete the fix....needless to say I haven't made any new friends during this experience...will let ya'll know how it goes after the 5th....wish me luck.

My 2010 leans to left also, been riding it for a year now with no handling problems. Only way you can tell is by measuring it, just as soon leave well enough alone and just ride. I did change the header pipe, mufflers and 30 tooth sprocket all is well.

We all want to wish you GOOD Luck. You have just started down the path of dealer incompetence.I am fortunate there are 2 good dealers around me and 1 of them is excellent.

I'm surprised you have a "leaner" with the 2010. This assembly/alignment problem seemed to begin when they moved the the Tri-Glide assembly operation to the York, PA plant. Seems a lot of trike inexperience there at the time. I'm glad you are happy with yours.

Dealers here can't keep them in stock either. Most are sold before they hit the floor. There may be folks out there doin the buy/ride/flip with no lost money like its 1990 again when the MOCO limited supply?
