HD Street Glide or electra glide?

7 posts in this topic

I am thinking about getting a new bike.. What is the difference ?? Also what do you think trade in value for a 06 Road Star Midnight Silverado with less than 5000 miles??

Both Nice Bikes! The Street Glide is basicly an Electra Glide with the tour pack taken off, and a lowering kit on the frame.They are about the same money.

In my opinion, buy the Electra Glide, and get a quick detach tour pack mount. On the long trips the tour pack is well worth having.

As far as trade in goes...better sit down when they tell you. I am looking at trading my '02 Electra Glide Classic in on a new Ultra Classic. They want to buy it by the pound because anything you have is nothing but scrap metal, but thiers are still solid gold.

Good luck, I hope you can make a deal.

I actually got a great deal... I shopped around and didn't let them bully me.. I walked out on one guy and not more than 2 hours later he called me and lowered his price by 1500...... I went with the street glide.... I'm not old enough yet for the tour pack... lol...!!!! Can't wait to pick it up....

I got almost 8000 for the trade in. The final deal: $1000 off MSRP and $1400 off in parts, plus no fee for set-up or freight!! It was the EP dealer ( wild prairie).... I haven't gotten the bike delivered yet, but so far so good.

    •   Not only that, but the boy they're hitching their wagon to ( Nunes ) said this;   Snip. "But he also re-stated his belief that Obama did not order the wiretapping of Trump Tower"  
    •   Those are great names from the kids. They seem to know where they will end up in the end! Instead of sweety, cuddles, lovey........  Lol
    • For something different and a little less expensive you could consider a Texas hog hunt.

    • Not nails but worse, they are self tappers from the metal roofing:)  Sorry, I need to take the angle grinder out there and zip those off this weekend.  Funny you bring up the name kabob, that is actually the name of one of them if they don't produce:)   Here is a short list of the names my kids came up with:   - Kabob - Soup - Nugget - Fried - Drummie - Pot Pie   I cant remember the others but you get the point...    
    •   I agree that in the long run, the very best thing that could be done is to completely repeal the ACA and then continue to reduce government involvement. The problem with that is this is a messed caused by government that would become a disaster at least short term for some folks if it were immediately repealed. At this point, government created the mess so it has an obligation to fix it with as little damage as possible to the people.
