Electra Glide Standard starting at $18,999 looks like the best value for the price in the lineup. Well H-D fans and H-D haters welcome to comment.

My mate has last years (19) road glide thingy and has put 30k on it. Paid $34k a year ago and got told now worth $20k as a trade in. New bikes sure can burn through ya bucks aye. And, just by the way, how can you buy a 2020 model in 2019? Smoke and mirrors,

I have noticed H-D has been for the last several years releasing new model information on the coming new year model right after Sturgis bike week. The new 2020 models will start arriving at dealers in the coming weeks.

It's common. Long time ago my roommate bought the next year's model Mitsubishi Eclipse in May.

Harley's never impressed me, my son rides a Heritage Softail. Besides the cost to buy and the cost to maintain, there is the reliability Also a Softail requires the oil tank and filter change plus a purging process requiring removing lines and cranking the engine. Then there is the transmission. Just my observation.

The VTX was released for sale in June or July of 2001 as a 2002 model.

I ran the numbers, it cost no more to maintain my Harley than it did to maintain my VTX.
Change the oil.....Both 4 qts
Change the tires....Both
Change plugs......Both, 2 for HD 4 for VTX
Change brake/Clutch fluids.....Both
Change Transmission oil.....Harley 1 qt
Change Radiator Coolant.....Honda 1 gallon
The only other extra would be the drive belt and that lasts for 100,000 miles now


Reliability is just as good as any other out there now including Honda. Has been since the new factory lines and engines been up and running early 2000's. Had my Road Glide and Ultra Classics all over this continent putting almost 50,000 on the Road Glide and 40,000 on my CVO Ultra( with the bigger engine ) and only 2 problems on the RG. A short in my cruise control wiring and the backlight in the radio went out. Best thing about those problems that has all other dealers out done is they knew I was on a trip in Canada and Calgary HD took me right in the head of the line and got me fixed before lunch. I've had problems on my Honda's and went to nearest dealer only to have them say "We can look at it in a couple days or a week and get back to you."

Spike you might be right on Honda not helping trip breakdowns. When leaving the motel in the morning, three times in the last 6 long trips, a Harley rider was being left behind while he was waiting for someone to pick up his bike. I felt bad for him as his party pulled away.


Last year when I was filling up a HD rider pulled in filled up and asked me to give him a push when he was going to pull out. His clutch cable failed and it was hard to take off shifting into first. I understood his problem and helped him.
