Being a "Copperman" I am biased towards copper for electrical wiring. However, I purchased a 2012 Road King Classic last October and have 10,600 miles on it. It is outstanding ! Go new! Let us know what you decide-go with your gut. Don't worry the 103 has plenty of go.
I Have a 2012 Road King Classic and I love It if I was a little bigger. I think I'm a little to small and old for it , Can't get used to it bought it last May. Traded in a 2011 Heritage Classic was better fit for me…Just My Opinion….. Got 3400 Miles on it.
I'm too late to make a decision difference here, but when I was looking for a new bike back in '08, I test rode a Road Glide but wasn't that happy with the handling, so I bought another BMW. This year, I test rode a new ('11) Road Glide. My perception was that the handling was much more precise. I ended up buying it. I think the new frame is materially better.
Sorry for checking in late.
Went with the Brand new 2012. Midnight and silver.
The performance differance with the CVO was not enough to warrant a used bike.
Anyhow that dealer would not budge as much as I had anticipated.
Bike broke down 10 miles from home Sunday.
Freakin nightmare as the tow companies phone went dead the next day and they had my bike overnight.
In my rush to get on the road I forgot to phone in and insure it. Doh !
At the dealer now.
Said it was the stator.
