It's delightful to read your review on the first ride. That "holy shit" moment when you crack the throttle and you feel like the bike is going to launch itself from under you is so pleasant, especially after you've racked up many miles on the C50. The 103 was a kit that really woke up the rather anemic 96 and eventually was produced as the standard motor. Do yourself a favor and get on a Harley forum for info. If I recall, there was an issue with some sort of plastic gear in the drive that was prone to shearing in the 07-08 model year, along with a couple other quirks.///////////
Thanks!!.... I'll check it out.....Bike is headed to the Harley shop tomorrow for at least one tire possibly two. And to visit with them about the bike. They did the upgrade with the 103 kit. I also have some general questions about upkeep service ect. Yeah the power increase compared to the Triumph is...... noticeable.
Wow...Thats a nice.......motercycle? LoL.....Will do beezer. The shop I'm taking it too, is also the largest dealer in Oklahoma. It's called Harley World. Not like they have delusions of grandeur or anything. Gonna pick it back up on the 26th. There will be pics!!! Gotta take some of the Triumph also. Don't want her to get jealous. I broke the news to her about the Harley, last night, while I was taking a ride. She backfired and stalled at the next light. Now maybe I dumped the clutch.... but I don't think so.When you get the Harley back make sure to post up some money shots
Uh-huh. When I got the Triumph she said that's nice honey, you need to take the trash out. When she saw the pics of the Harley, she showed a lot more.....interest. LoL. Thanks guys!!. Maybe we can go riding someday.Hide your keys or you'll never have any gas in it. Your wife will fire it up and just let it idle while she sits on it. 🤣🤣😱😱 Maybe she had it planned all along. JS.
Hey buddy. Just saw your comment, it slipped by me. Yeah you may be correct. But it's all over but the crying. I chose the Harley. She put a spell on me. Thanks for your interest though!!!!Between the Ultra and the Voyager, (I think) the Voyager will have fewer problems.
The Ultra will hold it's resale value better. Both are Excellent choices. The Ultra will have
a better low center of gravity. The 09' Harley is when they upgraded the frame to handle
better than before. But going by Price only, that's a difficult choice. I'd probably still go for
the Voyager. But that's just me.
Thanks Buddy!!! Yes it was a very tuff decision. Wore my ass out. LoL I'm having all its maintenance brought up to date at the shop. Tank flush, fuel lines if needed, break lines and pads if needed, all new fluids, etc. Plus new tires front and back. Just had an oil change, and a new battery a couple weeks ago. Said they would start on it no later than the 26th. So hopefully I'll have it back by the 27th. Pics to come!!!congrats on the new ride...must have been a tough choice but in the end the gut always points one in the right direction...I'm sure the wifes already planning to enjoy the new benefits that come with the HD...vibrations and all...good luck with it and looking forward to the pics.
Well she basically picked out the bike. And she is too mean to take her CC. I think I'm sunk. Headed for the poor house.You DO NOT have to drink the kool-aid ! Hubby has t-shirts & a key ring. That's it. Confiscate your wife's credit card before she steps foot in the "World of Harley"
God no!!! Don't do that. She will just get another card with a higher limit. No good deed goes unpunished.Would you like for us to wish for the magnetic strip on her card to have a major problem so it doesn't read??? Temporary I know, but we can do this for multiple cards.🤣🤣🤣
