York's Open House Weekend

Took the day off work on Friday and rode to the York Open House with the sole intention of riding the new CVO RG. We got there at 9am and I think I only waited about 30 minutes to ride one. They had 2 that were being ran, the one I rode and my personal favorite, the Gunship Grey CVO. I loved this thing. I am coming from an 09 so keep that in check here; but I thought the motor was quite strong and impressive and I thought it handled really well. There is not much I would change about it (might have to change out the engine guard and put on a normal one so I could add some lowers, and would have to add a detach tour pack for when I ride with the Mrs. This thing is probably my favorite CVO RG to be produced since the 09 CVO RG. Who knows maybe in a couple years someone will be wanting to trade a low mileage one of these in Gunship Grey on something else and I will be ready to scoop it up.
Anyway, after we were done at the Factory, we rode to Wrightsville and ate lunch at The Burning Bridge Tavern before heading for home.
Great day to not be at work for sure!

I ran up there with a few folks..unplanned, they grabbed me at the last minute...interesting that the CVOs are built on the same line as the rest..I thought they were "more special"!!

I could be wrong here, but I am pretty sure that 2009 is the last year that the CVO's were "more special", as they were mostly hand built, then in 2010 they moved to the way it is now.

Yeah, I know I can't afford to sell this one, so I have yet to even test ride a M8 motor. But every time I see a 2018 CVO RG, I get to thinking anyway. Bad thoughts!!

For me, I like the new motors and I like the Rushmore upgrades (though I still really like my 09, hence the reason it's still around, well that and it's paid for), but then comes the problem...I want an RGU (mostly for the tour pack, lowers and longer suspension, but yet I dislike the rear ends and the seat on the RGU, I much prefer the rear ends and overall looks of the RGS much better. I am not sure I have an opinion about it, but the RGU has the water cooled heads and the RGS does not. I have done so much to my 09 to get it where I want it that at this time I am not interested in trading it and figure it will be around for a bit more. I am actually putting new bars on my 09 this winter, going from the Yaffe 10" to F47 14", and I am pretty excited about that.

Hand made bike's are expensive like a Rolls Royce. So the CVO had to move to a line like a BMW so we could buy one. Just like the pin striping has gone to robots from hand striped. Sad but holds costs.
