Not that Harley's are bad bikes but if you have to take out a 10 year loan for one wouldn't an inexpensive Honda , Kawasaki, or other good less expensive bike be a better choice?

If the goal is ride around Europe then even a KLR650 might be a good choice.

It just seems like a lot of debt to go into when you might not need to.

And check for JB Weld on the bottom/back of the rear of the motor for a bottle hook-up.

Well, yeah ur right I could, and i know its a good argument and if i was 100% logical I'd go Japanese..but while KLRs etc etc are gr8 bikes and would do the job, they just dont push the same buttons big twins do.

If you're going to keep it literally for the rest of your life, then it doesn't matter which you go for, but if you're even THINKING that you might sell it again when you've finally paid for it, buy the twinkie. It's three years old now, and by the time you've paid for it it might be eight or nine: still saleable. But the Evo is ten years old this year, and by the time you've paid for it will be fifteen or more: hard to sell. But before you part with any money, ride BOTH of the ones you intend to buy, and be very, very picky. If either, or both, don't light your fire straight away, just park them and walk away - there are plenty of other bikes out there. Right now you're buying your fantasy, but when you get it home it'll just be a lump of metal, and you'll see all sorts of expensive things wrong with it that somehow escaped your notice in the shop. And work out how much it's going to cost you to get it the way you REALLY want it - HD aftermarket parts are plentiful, but cost plenty, too, on our side of the pond. That said, if it floats your boat, then go for it. My H-D was a heap of old iron when I bought it and isn't much better now, but I've kept it longer than any other bike I've owned in 35 years of biking so something in it must be right somewhere. Best of luck.

Did/Does the TC version of the Dyna have the beefier transmission mount?



I know the Evo Dynas (if you horsed the motor) needed the reinforcement plate on the right side. Stockers didn't seem to have a problem.



My '88 FXRS Low Rider had at least one leaking base gasket the whole 8 years I owned it. I loved that bike.



Not as much as my Triumph, though!
