    Yeah, so I can get a 108.8 cubig inch M109R from Suzuki for 14,800 new. It'll weigh in at 764 and give me 125 horsepower. It's water cooled and runs a lot cooler than any HD I've ridden. Just sayin.
    Same for the Yamaha Raider. It'll stomp a HOLE in anything I rode at the HD dealer sans the muscle....and even then, it'd be down to the riders

    The older the better the value, because lets be honest...despite the introduction of PARTIAL water cooling, were still dealing with essentially 1953 technology. So picking up a 10+ yr old Ultra for under $7k IS in fact a good value. But $23k for a new one? Well...you're paying for York Penn Union labor. And having toured that plant twice, I saw the workers taking more breaks than working in a 2 hr span, that's for sure. THAT'S what you're paying for! Not quality/performance/handling/innovation. You're paying for UNION DUES
    Thats why I wound up with a 99 electra glide classic for $5k

    Might need to take a page out of your book, Freddy.
