Considering pre owned Ultra Classic

Looking at my first HD touring bike. Strongly considering an Electra Glide Ultra.

Looking at inventory near me I'm wondering with Harley Davidson how far back is too far? For example is a 2011-2014 a bad move?

Obviously it depends on mileage and care and price but speaking in general

Budget allowing, I would go for the Rushmore bikes. Worth the difference in suspension and features.

Some folks seek the comfort of the straight and narrow. Me? I prefer the twisted road.

Just my opinion. I would't go older than '09 when new frames introduced. Rushmore's came out in '14.

I know it's an antique, but I still love my 06 CVO.

I wouldn't have a problem with a used bike as my 1st ride. 2014 are the 1st year of the Rushmore with all the New features. Depending on your ca$h flow and what bells and whistles you want. Remember this the Newer bike come two ways. 1. with a liquid cooled heads and 1. without that depending on what you want. Don't jump into just anything cause the price is right. Make sure its what YOU want ! Plus take it for a ride to see if it fits your style of riding. GOOD LUCK

Theres probably more but basically the advantage of any liquid cooled motor is more ability to shed heat and control temps. The cons are more weight and complexity.
