    Found a 2010 FLHTK merlot/sunglo the color and pattern I have been looking for online at a HD dealer but it has 19,000 miles on it, any concerns with that many miles was told that the guy is retired and trades ever year and has it serviced at the dealership. Would like lower mileage but this was a custom color and I have my heart set on it, if i wait will I find another one in this color? Would like to buy before spring.

    Owners of FLHTK's have you been happy with your purchase? Seems like a Great bike with all the extras included.

    Thanks

    I have one the same year/color and love the bike. The miles shouldn't matter if the price is right.

    What is the right price? they wanted 22,500 got them to 21,500 after 10 min. on the phone. The bike is completely stock with new tires and in new condition he said.

    If not worried about purchasing a pre-owned bike in great shape for the same money that would buy a new classic I would have to say that the decision to purchased a 1 owner limited would be the way to go. I would ask about 20k service and if it has been done along with the new tires that would seal the deal.

    Is the warranty on a new bike transferable?

    As long as you had a good amount of warranty, I think you may be OK. Without warranty, I would have to take a really close look no matter how good it shines.

    The balance of the 2 year warranty should transfer , and may still be eligible for ESP I would plan on that one JMO

    You probably already know this but the 2011 came out with the colors reversed. It looks nice as well. I have the 2010 FLHTK in red and black, I love the bike. After a few mod's I couldn't be happier.....In CA the 2010 Merlot/Sunglo is sold out, but their are several of the 2011's around. They sticker at 26k, if that helps....

    I wouldn't be concerned at all with the miles. As Jack said the warranty should be transferable and the ESP should be available. If it is the bike and colour that you want go for it.

    Sounds like a good deal, 19k miles not a big deal...the warranty and ESP intact is great, if it pushes all the right buttons and your financially comfortable, sounds like a winner. :D
