Yes, I don't have the truck experience, but I have put over 200,000 miles on a dozen cars without replacing the clutch. And Harleys have the advantage of the wet clutch that wears even less in normal...

Yes, a crazy time for Harley. They smacked into an era of cheaper more powerful touring bikes that handled better. So they have been making a lot of changes to keep up with the times. Just when I...

Both bikes are over priced if they were in our area( $4500 for the Ultra, $6300 for the Heritage).

Not sure what you really want, cruise?, radio? fairing? But, parts and service are getting harder...

No. Rushmores fixed areas of the bike that were dated or problems like a beefier suspension, up-to-date electrical system, and better saddlebags. Rushmore updates are on all newer bikes.

Rushmores have a lot of improvements that make up for the 25% higher price. And unless the bike has been sitting outside, there is very little risk with the low miles engine. In fact, I think it's an...

I opened this subject thinking I was going to learn about the new windshield maker, RKS. Come to find that this is another thread from a Dyna driver moving up in the Harley line.

Yes, This is what I did. I got lowers and tour pack really really cheap. Turned out I rode with lowers about 50% of the time for the cool months, and use the tour pack twice. So I painted the lowers,...

The stock design is intentional to minimize vibration. Fix one and you will cause the other. The 09 frame is better, but certainly not perfect. One must consider their style of riding when purchasing...

So, a dog walks into a bar and tells the bartender that he is looking for the man who shot his paw.

Wait a minute....maybe I'm confused.

Yep.

Dont forget the softails, Dynas and Sportsters. But saying that, the SG and Ultra flip back and forth as Harleyís top seller. Iím guessing 95% of the SGs and RGSs donít get above 2000 miles...

That was put out by MOCO some years ago. But, I trade a lot of bikes and I agree. There are plenty of 20 year old Harleyís with less than 20í000 miles. Many with far fewer. In fact most bikes fit in...

Good post, and exactly right. One other fact I like to suggest, but I always get in a little trouble, is to consider your style of riding. 95% of all Harley owners put less than 2000 miles on their...

I stayed away from the RG because the bad air from below the fairing into my helmet was worse. I understand MOCO fixed that, so now it's just a matter of which is the best deal.

I believe the groove design is making the tire unstable, meaning the grooves are actually pulling the tire side to side. The rider is trying to make the bike go strait by correcting the unstable rear...

There are a lot pre 09 bikes with newer pipes. They just need an 09 or newer oil pan. I think Iíve seen a bracket from exhaust manufacturers. Iíve seen used pans on eBay for $100.

Never heard that. Pretty sure all 09s have the new frame. Easiest check is the left exhaust tube comes from the right side under the swing arm.

I owned three 09s, good bikes.
