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.

    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
    • What a treat to see a tanager.
