I want this

I called a dealer just for and giggles.



Almost 30k for that exact bike.

Around 20k for just the Bike with the flat black paint, bags, seat and pipes.

If I was loaded I would buy it.

I rode the non-trickedout version of it on several HD test rides. Funnest cruiser I have ever been on! I actually contemplated trading the 919 for it. But I can't give up sportbikes quite yet.

I rode a version of it last summer.... The steering felt so heavy that I just didnt want to take any further down the street than I already did. They are what they are and if its what you like thats cool. I'm just not in the "Harley" place yet or any cruiser type just yet..

That'll work........

$20k for paint, bags, seat and pipes. What else is left for the additional $10k? Handlebar, mirrors, forward controls? What gives?

The $8k Honda just needs some black pipes (and another 400cc) to fit the bill.

Nice apart from the seriously gay seat covering! What is it Bison or something?

30 large ones - what a joke. I'd have more fun on the new Forty-Eight Sporty and have change to burn.

I have friends with those type of things. They won't leave me alone until I ride it. They think they have the Harley that is gong to change my mind about Harleys. There's something about those things that put me to sleep. When I get off the blasted thing I always say the same thing. Don't make me do that again.

Just thought of a clever response to the typical Harley Rider who comes up to you and says


"Hey, how come you bought a rice burner instead of a Harley?"


"Nothing wrong with cruisin' and dreaming on one of those, but I'm an insomniac"


That ought to leave them scratching their noodle.

Last year I rode the DM's Dyna Whatsit. It was the most basic one with mid controls. Now, I wouldn"t buy one, but it was surprising how well it rode! Engine,trans and clutch worked great together. Handling was fine as was the ride within the limits of the suspension.

the picture does look nice, but 30K is a little steep....plus add the cost of all the Harley t-shirts and other costume accessories from all the dealerships in all the different cities just to look Harleyish

A guy at work just bought a Screamin Eagle Ultra..................$37K

Just think of how many bikes you could own for $37K.........a 919, a SV650, a FJR1300, & a Vmax. All slightly used but you would have all of your moods/needs covered and some money left over.


I just don't understand.

BTW it does look very nice (except the seat).

Eh, you're right. I can't buy a Harley anyway due to the fact that I'm single and thus don't have a bike mechanic boyfriend to babysit the darn thing. :/

Isn't that blasphemy from someone who lives in Wisconsin? I thought you guys couldn't talk bad about Harleys, Happy Days or Laverne and Shirley?

It's pretty hard to find somebody who just spent 30-40K on a bike and will admit it's a POS. Can't blame 'em. If they admit they F'd up that bad it would be pretty embarassing.

I'll never get but you got to give HD credit. Their marketing is like Jedi mind control.

You think this bike is worth twice what you are paying ................

That shit don't work on me.

H.D. = Hundred Dollars. Every thing you do to own one (besides buying it which costs you more than a Honda Accord) costs you a Hundred Dollars minimum. BTW love the dentist comment, funnest thing I have read in a long time.

It's one of the oldest marketing tricks, isn't it? Place an astronomical price tag on something, in this case a bike, relative to other similar products and people just have to have it because at that price it has to be outstanding, exclusive, gets you into the cool club, gives you bragging rights at the dentist convention, allows you to wear questionable gear/clothing without having your wife, friends and family wonder about you, etc., etc.

WheelieTime, I apologize.

I was trying to make a light-hearted joke (post #19) and I feel like it was part of a downturn which derailed your thread into another steaming pile of hatred.

You're not being bashed here... it's not your fault.

Flat black and suede/leather seats/accessories sure looks nice. But not like everyone said, not ready for it yet. As in putting around instead of zooming around.

You are exactly right. But think of it this way...

...If you live next to the ice cream shop, it's frickin AWESOME at first. And then, after a while you get tired of seeing people walk by with ice cream cones. EVERYBODY has an ice cream cone and soon, when you see someone with an ice cream cone, you're just like, whatever.

All those loud, vibrating, spitting and sputtering ice cream cones get old after awhile.

When I first saw the new Fatboy Low I went to the Harley shop and checked the price tag. To get it done just like the picture I saw, no chrome, only flat black and polished aluminum, was like 23k CAN$. I said screw it.

I know where I can get an old panhead from the 50's for 5 grand, I'll go get that instead.
