One could do a home equity loan if a homeowner with some equity and have low interest and small payments.Not having seen the '94......I think that finances plays a big part in that question.
If the buyer can't pay cash for the new one, or pay off the financing within 2 years or so, then I would recommend the '94.
'94 isn't old enough to be "old" by H-D standards.This isn't a question about financing. It's a question about feeling, emotion, movement. What moves you. What is it about motorcycles, Harleys, that pumps your blood. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue?
You are right, most of the time it isn't......but a LOT of the time it really should be.This isn't a question about financing.
Well the RK is really just a continuation of an older model with a new name and a few minor changes in styling to look more like the original Electraglide from 1965.I mentioned a 1994 because 1994 is the first year of the Road King, it's practical and affordable and readily available, and yet historic,
On a typical OHV pushrod car engine like a Chevy smallblock they are called valve covers mainly because they cover the top of the cylinder head where the valves and rockers are but they are just covers with no moving parts attached.By the way, if anyone knows, what's the difference between a "Rocker Box Cover" and a cylinder head cover? Maybe they aren't even related. HWat's the Rocker Box?
If you are going to be picky about what you consider as "constructive", then maybe you shouldn't ask in the first place.have any CONSTRUCTIVE thoughts, one way or the other, now's the time to express them.
What's this "we" business?If you are going to be picky about what you consider as "constructive", then maybe you shouldn't ask in the first place.
We can't make up your mind for you. We can be a sounding board.....IF you try to fully explain your feelings and primary motivations.....which you have just started to do with the last post.
Regardless of your motivations, I think that trying NOT to do something stupid should be foremost.
That is, not spending money that you don't have and not buying a bike just to be "eye candy".
I buy a bike to RIDE, not to screw with. If your objectives don't match that, then my advice may not apply.
BUT that is me.
If what you want IS eye candy........or you aren't concerned about going into debt for it......then by all means, ignore my advice......but don't beat me up for giving it.
You DID ask.
All other things being equal, I think a newer vehicle is almost always a better choice, for reliability and "ego stroking".
