Default Go for it. You deserve it.

Hey your mental and physical health is more important than any thing else.. Yep you are going to take a hit on interest and HDs are expensive. But if thats your passion go for it. Buz and I agree I think that you should buy a bike you feel passionate about it. By the way my physical health turned around when I bought a bike. I am a diabetic and before I bought a bike I was having trouble controlling by glucose levels, blood pressure, weight etc. After I got my bike things got better... My mental outlook got a lot better... I still have setbacks from time to time but my bike is my escape. My doctor rides a Harley and he has plaque on his office wall that says "You don't see any motorcycles parked outside a shrinks office" He takes heat from his fellow doctors but he really helped me get my health back on track..



I don't know anything about Harley's but longride, Buz and seruzawa know a heck a lot. They would be the first guys I would ask.. If they don't have the answer they know people who do.



Have fun... You deserve to have a bike..

I actually think he should buy the bike (HD) that he feels passionate for.. See my other post.. on this thread..

I also think longride, Buz, and seruzawa are the guys to talk to on this topic. If I was going to buy an HD they would be the first guys I would talk to..

Harley makes Harleys.



The others make Harley copies.

Thanks my friend, kind words. I think thats the bottom line, when u've been there, it's like ur never gonna get out of it and now I am, I look at things VERY differently and having had plenty of Jap bikes in the past, I know its the one thing that really can take you away from ur everyday life .. meditatin in the wind as James Hetfield puts it! And as i 've said elsewhere, no bike puts a smile across my face like a harley ..so what the hell!

TC88 intro year ('99) issues were resolved by '02, and the TC88 certainly is a more robust, powerful, and reliable motor. But, given that mileage is moderate on both engines, it's the age of the total package that U need to concern yourself with - gaskets, wiring harness and electricals, especially, start to oxidize and deteriorate just sitting in your garage. The Evo your considering is now approaching 10 years old! Lastly, keep in mind that many HD dealers will at some point refuse to do various service work on your Evo, just as they've done with other older designs (shovels, etc.), because they are hesitant to warranty the work. Go with the TC88!!!!

Default Re: A 10-YEAR LOAN ON A BIKE?!

I would counsel you NOT to take out a 1-year loan on anything smaller than a house.



No amount of mystique and image is worth paying that much interest.



Go find a nice used metric cruiser. Unless your self-esteem is so low that you can't arrive on anything BUT a Harley, you will be just as happy on one of the many Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, or Yamaha cruisers.

Do you pay VAT on used-vehicle purchases?
