okay. so it's been a couple of weeks, and the emotions aren't quite so raw.
progressive dropped off the check for the cvo today. so i promptly went down to the harley dealer and spent it.
and of course, being as how we're a 2 bike family, the wife just couldn't stand that i was getting a new bike and she would still have her 2012, so we made a two-fer deal at the dealer. it ended up costing a little more than i would have liked, but we really got a fair deal. damn gov taxes was quite a bit, almost 10% here in la.
no pics yet, but in true skratch fashion, i went completely opposite what i had done before. my road king was white, so when i bought my first road glide i went denim black. then i went to the flashy cvo. this time, vivid black. i wanted the scorched orange, but they didn't have it, and no dealer nearby wanted to trade. i didn't care for the other colors, so i went with black. besides, parts are cheaper
front fender on the cvo was $1100....
wife liked the industrial grey denim.
so 2 road glides, no mods, 2 x 5 year esp, and i'm back in the water again. didn't get to ride them home, doc hasn't cleared me to ride yet, so they will be delivering them to the house monday. picked up a payment, so mods will be slow in coming, plus, there is the warranty implications to think of, but we will be riding new bikes with the new infotainment system (which means someones gonna have to come find us when it gets us completely lost in bumfuk nowhere, lol) but life will be good again.
tomorrow will be spent taking off as many aftermarket parts from the wife's bike that we can before i start work on sun with no time off for the next two weeks.
