Hoep that helps
I agree. Good choice! Enjoy the ride!

Sorry
Given the same price which would you choose ?
2012 Classic is brand spankin new.
2008 CVO is Copper with <100 miles.

Thanks
I was kinda in the same boat about a month ago,
I was looking at a New 2012 Road King Classic, they also had a 2008 CVO, with all the add ons and in a Ghost paint blue.
My choice was easy thou,
I got the New 2012 Road King Classic for $18,500
They were asking 24K for the CVO. I could not justify the cost difference.

Still getting used to it.

Very different from any bike I've had before.

So far so good.

Thanks for asking.

Now looking for an exhaust.
Rinehart 4" is the direction its headed in.
Will take some more time to research.

Yep.
I think it was bad from the factory.
When new they replaced the battery before giving the bike to me.
Got <50 miles on the new battery.

A Monday bike ?
