An investment is something that gains in value.

I was thinking "pi$$ed away 24k" might be a more accurate statement.

.... we'll just hold hands and sing kumbaya a few times and watch "Some Convenient BS" for proper re-education.

I've always chuckled at all the things that are called "investments" in our society. Advertisers call BMWs and Lexi "investments" instead of "depreciating future piles of rust". Tax and spend pork is called by the govt "an investment in the future" instead of "redistributed money stolen from people who work for a living". I'm sure you can think of some.

Default What the?

I thought Harley's "held their value"? Is this the Final Sign of the Impending Moto-Apocalypse? Shouldn't that read "$24K invested, willing to let it go for $30K"?

I mean, you H-D faithful on here might be able to shed some lieght(sic) on the subject.........

Wow, ...is the $24k on top of the purchase price or including?....

At any rate, a new '08 FXWG with 6 speed, EFI, 96 in motor, 0 miles and full warranty + factory financing is...what? $17k OTD ?

This is ..hmmm, a 2000 so early TC88, possible cam bearing issues...carburator and 5 speed...a bunch of standard add on's that cost around $1500 total.....

List for a 2k Wide Glide was around $14k but you no doubt paid a $2~3 k vasoline tax......

include depreciation for whatever miles you put on there, plus my time for yarding off all that "tons of chrome" and undoing any sledgehammer work you and your bros did...I'd say around $8~9 k was more like it...

Just tryin to help here...

....5 speeds. Your Hog has a 6 speed right? It's not like one of those peaky weak-sister 600s. My friend has a DL1000 and the 6 speed on his also seems an exercise in futility. Another friend has a BMW R1150 and an R1100. He likes the 5 speed better as well. Engines with those power characteristics don't seem to gain any substantial advantage from a 6 speed IMHO. My Magna has a 6 speed and with no gear position indicator makes it very difficult to tell which gear you are in.

No, mines an '05, last year for 5 speeds and carburators. I agree, a six speed on an HD is not much use really. The ratios on the 5 speed are well suited for the 88's powerband, 90 in 5th is around 3.5~4k- which is where the motor like to run. One thing I notice with the 88 is it likes to rev, I bounce it off redline in all 5 gears and it eats it up and begs for more.

I don't see much point in loping along at 2k RPM all day in 6th and around here with all the hills you're really not going to use it anyway. Maybe if you're going across like Colorado or Kansas or something where it's pancake city you could just idle along but I don't see much use for it here.
