    2012 Tri Glide - Only $95,000

    Down at the dealer (Sound Harley) yesterday chasing down some mystery electrical problem on my Ultra. While waiting on the tech to get a look at my bike, the service manager Brandy takes me back into the service bay to show me this bike.. MSRP on base Trike is about $32K plus parts and almost 160hrs in labor. Total = $95K and ready for delivery this week.

    Apparently, the guy was in an accident on his last bike and due to the injuries now needs to go to a trike. He decided to use a chunk of the settlement money and go ALL the way with his new ride. Way too much to list… 120R, Chrome Everything , Custom Everything, Wheels, Tires, Electronics, Stereo, Lighting and then Everything else, etc, etc. Apparently they actually got to the point where could not think of anything else to add. Much more impressive in person than in these crappy camera photo’s.

    I say... you only live once so more power to him.. don't know him but am happy that he decided to get back in the saddle....... and in style..

    Wow... Love my Harley no doubt, but 95k will get you a home with a new set of mud gripper tires around here, probably polished rims too.
    Riding between the lines,

    Well we all have the ultimate wish list. Like the 120R. zoom zoom. Happy he was able to make it happen but the circumstances suck.

    Sooo,...what he has is a trike that cost him $95K with a resale value of about...oh, $40K tops, now but losing a ton of resale to depreciation every model year for the first 10 years. For that price he paid, I'm sure he could have bought THREE stock trikes, had a different color for whatever mood he was in that day, not put the miles on them individually that he will on that one, and made 3 folks REALLY happy when he sold them down the road. Oh well... Ain't my money.

    I'm walking with Sophie tonight, She lives in the air that I breathe;
    I can't get it out of my mind, How you were left to bleed...
    Was it how you dressed?
    Or how you act?
    I can't believe, How they could act so violently,
    Without regret, , Well, we will not forget...

    We are the others, We are the cast outs,
    We're the outsiders, But you can't hide us,
    We are the others, We are the cast outs
    You're no longer on your own, If you feel mistreated, Torn and cheated,
    You're not alone, We are the others
