NVR Ultra Classic 2011

Here is a question, If you won a 2011 Harley Ultra Classic Electra Glide would you take it or would you take a $10,000 pay out?
There is a bit of taxes you will have to pay about $8000 to take the bike but it is a $22,000 bike.
just throwing this out there.

I don't understand the tax angle - $8,000 on a $22,000 bike?

I would take the bike if I could (bottom line) sell it for more than the cash pay-out.

In any case, I wouldn't keep the bike.

$8000 is tax title dock fee, it is higher because it is a prise and not just standard tax.
Say you ride it for a year and sell it for $18000 you still make the $10,000 cash you would have.

Why the hell would I want a Spyder! I ride Motorcycles, if I did that I should just get a Miata and be a total Pussy.

As I have a Miata already, I guess I have pre emptied the pussy factor as I still own the FJR. ( which stands for Faster than your Joke of a Ride)

The Spyder is a retirement investment. So when the day comes I am too old and feeble to hold up a two wheeler, I can at least still "feel" like I am riding one. Wait till you hit 60 ... Your views tend to change a bit.

As I am not even 40 the spider will not be running in over 20 years.
If I did want a trike there is great trike kits for HD's and many other options for them.
It is a good thing to have a Vulcan if you are on a Vulcan board also.
Just as info this is a Quote from teh Vroc board and it is not me, just so you know what other people say.

I am glad to be here with real men ( and women) who are not fake and plastic. I am proud to be a member and hope to be for a long time. Thank you for your indulgence.


Is one of the members of the other forum S 50 something Miata driver who owns an FJR and hangs around the Kaw forum spouting wisdom like the great and powerful OZ with a bunch of minions drooling over his every word,and the forum is dedicated to one particular small Vulcan motorcycle.If so ,You know why i hang over here more all the time.If it ain't ,tell me there is not another one like it,It is much less drama over here,and these guys and gals actually ride their bikes and are helpful without ,treating you like a moron.....unless you ask for it,LOL,I like it better here too.

I've ridden the Spyder. Nice but not a motorcycle. If necessary, I would look at one but not until I have to. But the new HD Trike I saw today looked more like something that I would want if and when that day comes.

For me, I would have to ride the HD and see how it stacks up to my current ride (2002 Nomad 1500FI).

For me my decision process would go something like this...

Can I afford the taxes, which where I live would be mighty - somewhere around 8k on a 22k bike?

What could I sell my 9 year old bike for to apply for a new bike with a nice warranty? Maybe 5 or 6 grand...

I would strongly consider the new HD as there is nothing in the Vulcan line that I truly like except maybe the Vaquero, but I'm not sure that I'll like that as I really dislike the new 1700 Nomad and Voyager.

HD has a great customer support network and dealership experience that Kawasaki and the rest of the Metric world can really learn from.

A new bike vs. a 9 year old bike. Lot's to think about there.

Overall, I would have to look at all of the above and as satisfied with my Nomad as I am, I would really be on the horns of a dilemma with this one. HD makes a high quality bike just as Kawasaki and Honda does.

For those who will slam HD for current model quality or their past experiences with douchbags, just remember that there are douchbags who ride HD's as well as Metric. Don't be a douchbag... I ride motorcycles, not brands. Whether I'm on a Kawasaki or a HD, I'm the same guy in any case. I show respect where respect is due and ride with like minded people. Don't be a hater due to brand ignorance.

Just my 2 cents on this issue...

I would keep the hd, that is provided I had the tax money.

And I think I would rather go with a voyager kit than the three wheeler of any kind.
