OK, looking for opinions, which are never in short supply 'round here.
I have a 2015 FLTRUSE with 25k on the clock that I really like. She's been good to me so far, for the most part. It's mostly finished... would like to swap bars for some 14" Factory 47s. Beyond that, just ride on.
It should be paid off by the end of the year, maybe November timeframe. You probably see where this is going... The 2018s will be out by then.
While I really do like this sled, I do have the 110 reliability in the back of my mind. Factory warranty expires in 3 months, but I do have ESP coverage for 3 years beyond that. I have already had the bottom end rebuilt once & it does occasionally make some odd sounds down there now. Have seen at least 2 failures on friend's sleds with 110s. One dude was on his 3rd motor before he said "enough."
I do like all the bells & whistles she has, but managed for years before this one without all that.
I have ridden every model with the 107 & really like it. That being said, I have next to no desire to start customizing yet another one. Maybe I'm just getting old, but these days I'm more interested in just riding.
So, the ideas floating around my noggin are:
1.) Pay off the nut as planned & just keep her & ride off into the sunset, not worrying about what may happen... until mid-2020 when the ESP expires.
2.) Don't pay it off, & trade in on a 2018 Road Glide Special & pay that off. Negotiate the sale so the new one is configured the way I want it.
3.) Pay it off, then trade in on a 2018 Road Glide Special. Negotiate the sale so the new one is configured the way I want it.
So, let's hear your opinion along with why you'd go that route.
