Road Dawg I hear you on the upgrades. I bought my 09 in 2015 with 1040 miles on it and it was totally stock. Zero aftermarket parts, or Harley "Upgraded parts. Ive poured all my detailing profits into when I could, but Im still not done. I want to put lowers on it but on a 09 its a little more complicated.
I would love to have a new bike, but my Avalanche has 212,000 miles on it and it has to make it 10 more years, so at some point a new motor will be going in when it needs it, only drive 12 miles a day. Bought a new house last year with a gigantic pool. Wife thinks we should put money into the house before the bike. Really!!!
For the guys with the new bikes, absolute congratulations! Id love to have a new one though as much as the next guy. Ive looked for sure and wanted to say F**** it and buy it but I couldn't do it. I have a plan and Im sticking to it. RFG, that is a good lucking bike sir!
I get you cant compare a TC with go fast parts to a stock M8. But the M8 has a distinct advantage from the get go also.
