Me and Gf at the time bought an 2008. Of course we broke up,sold it and I bought a 2009 was looking at a 2012. Found this great bike,loaded with chrome and all I wanted. Bought it instead of 2012. There was a title issue,dealer bought bike back after 5 weeks. They bent over to get me onto the 2013 I have now. Been kinda a mess but have a new bike,first year for midnight pearl. Love bike great deal.dealership really worked to make it happen.
