Some people just need to feel like they fit in somewhere, and buying a Harley is a quick way to do it.
Pay your money, you're a part of the flock, and everything that comes with it.
The market is dropping on Harley's quicker than anyone ever expected.
I'm not sure why you want to fool yourself into thinking you would ever be able to sell that bike for anywhere near what you paid for it.
"Minimal loss" for you on that purchase would be bankruptcy for many of us.
Typical of Harley owners, the denial of oh so many things.
Be sure to post a picture of you and your partner in your pirate outfits, that's always worth a smile.
If you decide that it truly sucks having such a huge, overweight bike with no power, www.aerocharger.com
has a nice bolt on turbo kit with no lag for only about $5000.00 - you'll spend two or three times that for similar results without a turbo, if not more, and reliability - well, you did not buy a Harley because reliability was any concern, did you?
The guys are aerocharger said they put 30,000 trouble free miles on the test motor, it's worth considering.
Then again, maybe you've reached the point in your life where it is fun to just poke on down the road.
I always said when I get too old to ride, I'll get a Harley.
Oh, be sure to watch this, it's been required viewing for all of my kids:
