    I am looking at a 2009 and a 2010 streetglide.They both have less than 1000 miles on them and are bone stock.They are priced within a thousand dollars of each other.Which would be the best choice of these 2 bikes other than the obvious that one is newer than the other.Thanks in advance.
    Peace and Prayers to all.

    Are they the same color? If not, does that have you leaning one way or the other.

    I have an 08 so I haven't exactly kept up on the model year changes. I'm pretty sure they have the identical frames and engines. Wasn't 2010 the year they tried the 2 into 1 exhaust? Did 2010 models have the cats in the headers?

    Someone will jump in shortly with more definitive input!

    Yeah, the 2010 has the 2 into 1 exhaust with the two O2 sensors just in front of the cat.

    Not too many diferences here. 2009 has 2-1 pipe with catalyst and older 18mm, 2 wire O2 sensors. 2010 has 2-1-2 exhaust with catalyst ans new 12mm 4 wire heated O2 sensors. Other than that frames, powertrains are identical.

    The 2010 may have more warranty left. Which is your favorite color??

    I appreciate everyones time and comments.Both bikes are my color,vivid black.
    The dealer was asking 18,999.00 for the 09 and 18,500.00 for the 2010.
    This was the main reason i asked the question on this forum.The 09 has 978 miles on it and is bone stock and the 2010 has 13 miles on it and they are obviously asking more for the 09.
    Only option on each is cruise control. Thanks again

    That doesn't make much sense - the 09 has more miles, less remaining warranty, and they want $499 more for it?

    Yes...something seems amiss w/these yr prices. Are you sure the 09 doesn't have ABS, or security? Gotta be a reason they want more for the older bike...
