    Love big utes/pick-ups. 

    Also love my imperfect HD Fat Bob that’s perfect for me.

    Hilarious you two.
    Bit true though, recall my 74 Sporty going up in flames, it was only a year old.
    Glad we were outside a pub with onlookers, a couple of beers put it right, and me.

    Perhaps another reason there down is  this ,, I went in  the other day , asked two questions ,

    1--- Whats my bike worth trade in ,, 2016 low rider ,  8000klm  ,   2 new tyres recently ,,  extras , bit of bling  bar grips ,  pegs ,  exhaust ,  sundowner seat ,,  passenger backrest and luggage rack ,  screen ,  8 months rego left ,    ANSWER ---- $12000 , , your extras are worth nothing , and   low riders don't sell ,  OUCH

    2 ,, How much , for that heritage classic , add on passenger backrest  , or that sports glide , add on taller screen , 10 inch apes ,  .
     ANSWER ,  Heritage no speciels on that so ticket price plus   the backrest

     Sports Glide ,  28 grand plus    the parts , i don'nt have the parts prices , i'll get back to you  when i speak to  workshop   and parts  and work out what they cost ,to supply and fit ,  Now that was 5 days ago and guess what still waiting for the call , , Not only that they were 2019 models  and 2020  models are just around the corner , and that devalues the stock they have ,

    Could be he thinks i'm a knobhead and messing about ,  but then again , if a customer who had bought  7 new bikes from that store in 9 years   walked in asking the questions , you would think   i've got a sale here , .

    End result , 12 grand , i'm keeping what i've got .

    Dealers  really are a buisness and DO have to make money , after all  there not there for a public service , but   theres making money and theres out and out greed ,

    I have seen run out specials on the sport glide for as low as  $25k  as for your 16 lowrider  $ 12k is an insult I think sold privately you`d get a few k extra. I do like the sport glide but shit!  those wheels suk, & maybe slightly higher bars ,Reckon I`ll wait a while , I always think  the right deal will come along in time ,that`s how I have bought all my bikes over the years .Maybe that salesman has not been there 9 years & don`t intend being there very long , seems the care factor is close to Zero with a lot of  salesman I deal with , but I guess they see a lot of Dreamers

    12 grand is an insult ,  they have to make money , but they know and more importantly i know , its got reg and low klm ,    its  gonna go on there floor for probably $19,900  and , , 8 grand differenc is just too much and greedy .

    Yet it always seems to be Harley ,  when i bought the  LR i had   another bike to trade , harley offered me $5000 trade in , against a new Low Rider ,, i declined , and just bought the lr anyway ,,  not long ago same dealer , different dept , gave me  $9800 trade on the same bike  against a bike 10 grand cheaper than the  LR , like i said it seems to be harley  dealers all the time who want to shaft ya ,,

    Well has far has i am concerned i say fook em , theres plenty of private bikes out there  and enough Harleys around to keep me in a bike for the rest of my life , personaly i could'nt care less if they all went broke , , funny enough we would even have toi go overseas then for parts , and guess what , we would still get them cheaper .
