Nothing of long distance bike trips on the calendar yet, looks to be another busy year for us, last year becoming empty nesters means this year we plan to either move or remodel the house...  :??:

Ordered is a loose term, HMS is getting 10 in, and can get more if need be, there will be plenty of stock in the US. I didn't put any $ down, so I can get one now, or in 3 months, 6 months, a year or not at all.


Will know more once they get the non-tour models in with all the chrome blacked out, I'm hopeful it either screams buy me or not when I see it in person...  :??:

A silver DCT non-tour is coming in with my name on it, when it arrives if I want it I'll buy it, if I don't they'll take my name off it and sell it to someone else...

Better?  ;D  :beerchug:

Glad there is plenty of supply. The AT and Crosstourer were in short supply the first year of release which meant a premium on top of MSRP to roll one off the showroom floor here in the east. Hope you can make a deal if you pull the trigger.....

All this Wing talk peeked my interest especially now that the wife is back to riding on my bike, since I just turned 50 I thought I am ready for one. Well Saturday I test rode one and while it was nice it didn't give me that want to sell a kidney and buy one feeling! No doubt it is slimmer than my fathers 2014 Wing, but it felt like it had less wind protection than my C14. it was heavier and slower than the c14 but handles nice for its size unlike my previous HD roadturd! the heated seat was nice on a cool 34 degree demo ride. Price was $27k, this was the 6 speed tour model in red.

In the end I walked away confirming that I'm still not ready for my final bike. No doubt this year I will be trading the c14 in for something with more 2 up comfort and cruise, it wont be a wing.
