I was doing some research and found a guy selling a 2009 FLHTC a few hours south of me. Amongst my list of questions, I asked him why he was selling the bike. Here's his reply: "Now for the reason of selling it. I owned a 2001 FLHT Standard for years and had 105,000 miles on it. The motor needed some freshening up so I thought I would get a new bike to put another 100,000 or so miles on it. They changed the frame for 2009 and in my opinion, it is not as comfortable to ride. Period. It may handle better, but I'm not an aggressive rider and haven't noticed that." He later went on to say: "After talking to a few salesmen about trading it in, I find out I'm not alone in being disappointed in the new bikes." In a word, I was shocked. I've never heard anyone say they weren't thrilled with the new frame/motor mount design. Anyone else out there agree with this gentleman? By the way, if he happens to be a member of this forum, I am not trying to "call him out" or embarass him in any way. I'm just trying to get some more information on this from the forum community. Also, if anyone is looking for a low mileage, 2009 FLHTC in excellent condition (no ABS, standard warranty), send me a PM and I'll give you the link to his ad.
