It's a good thing the driver didn't reach for an extinguisher in his trunk, because the cop would've shot him.

Pray 4 Mojo: Rent Party: Pray 4 Mojo: Rent Party: 2013 Electra glide starts at about $20K
2013 Vulcan 900 starts at about $10K

That said... it's the 900cc thing that's the huge difference. That'd be dangerously underpowered for full luggage, two up touring.

No big disagreements on the twins, but this here is why I don't ride 'em. :) 900+ cubes should be plenty enough to get two people and luggage around the nation.

A fair comparison would be the Vulcan Vaquero... which is about $18,000.

The EG, to correct you, would be about $23,000... I think.

OK. I believe you. :)

Pray 4 Mojo: Also... a 2013 Gold Wing is over $20k... While the rest of the wold wasn't looking... metric bikes went and got very expensive.

Yeah, but those things are living rooms on wheels.

JackieRabbit: Mishno: Harleys are both pretty reliable, it's just that you pay a brand premium of 25-50% over what the same quality will cost you from Honda or Kawasaki.

I have a friend who is a Harley mechanic and customizer. He disagrees with you. He says Harleys are POSs from a reliability standpoint. He owns one and is constantly working on it. He likes them to ride, though, and there is the whole Harley culture. If someone asks him what kind of bike to get, if they don't care about the whole Harley thing, he recommends Honda or BMW.

That's not really true. Have owned lots of Jap bikes and now Harleys. A Harley is no more a POS than any Jap V-Twin. It's a V-Twin... they shake... and stuff comes loose. Just the way it is. That said... you're paying (a lot) for the name. The advantage to paying for that name though... is the extensive amount of aftermarket and dealer support that no other company can come close to matching. Resale value on them is pretty key to.

The AMF days gave Harley a reputation that most still think is true... it's just not. I have an '05 and '07 with a combined 75k miles on them. Neither one has ever been in the shop for anything other than mods, maintenance or tires.

and chicks dig em.
