    Ok Tootsie gave me the ok to get a brand new 09 FLHTCUI Dark pearl Blue set up my way, life is great. However I found a 05 SE FLHTCI, teal w/20000 miles but everything and more (in a good way) that I would add so any thoughts? I've ridden the 09 UC and love the class of the bike but that little devil on my other shoulder keeps screaming about the cool hot rod factor of the SE any thoughts?

    I'm with Smitty901. If the price isn't a deal breaker, you'll be much happier with the /09 in the long run. Full warranty, new frame, new swing arm, new wheels, new exhaust...etc. Believe me, it's worth it just for the improved handling and ride.

    Well I believe you guys are right, I plan on the 09 UC I think I saw the SE in a moment of weakness, but my gut keeps me leaning towards the 09. Just didn't want to pass up a sweet bike due to a lack of knowledge.

    Do yourself a favor.....buy the new one for all the above mentioned reasons, TC 96, warranty etc.
