    You have a good point for after spending almost $11,500 plus what ever it takes to make it comfortable to ride you would be sick of it. It seems Harley is trying to be only a high end type motorcycle. More money for less Harley is getting out of hand in my opinion.
    No wonder why Indian came up with 2016 Springfield. They are calling it the other type of Road King.
    It is well appointed for $21,000.

    The market has always been flooded with Sporties. Not likely to change no matter what they call it or what it costs.

    Indeed! For a Sporty too.....

    Nothing wrong with Sporties but for that kind of money? Nah.

    I don't know if they still do it,but when I had my XL883,after 2 years they offered me list price back if I got any big V-twin.So they gave me 6995 for a bike I figured was worth about 3 grand.Which is how I got my FXDC.
