    LOL- just knock $2K off your sticker across the line and be done with it-

    Ford did ok when they dropped the price of the Model T from $850 to $360;

    But what’s to be learned from the past, for it never repeats, right?

    Cough.

    Hehehe- thanks Fuji- I was pretty much banking on winning the longshot, then selling the card on Ebay- heheheh;

    Come to think about it, that’s pretty much Harley’s financial plan going forward, too… Hmm….

    If I win think they will let me have a Buell 1125R or MV Agusta?

    No signature needed either…

    Smart marketing in my opinion. Won’t get guys who weren’t going to visit the dealerships anyway down there, but others who may be vacillating might find this just the spur they need. And riding a new Harley-Davidson motorcycle sure stirs the juices toward wanting one!

    No big secret that many dealers have new ’09’s on the floor and aren’t the 11’s due in a couple of months? My personal belief is some of the more savey customers are troubled by the ABS and fly by wire systems. A lot of police departments have switched to Honda or BMW. This I think tells alot about the uncertanty of their ABS and Fly By wire. I talked with one of the “Juneau Ave Guys” in Rapid last August and asked about the ABS and problems, his reply is that HD was not as bad as BMW, from me he got a “Really?” Nice motto “we don’t suck as bad as the other guys.” Ok I opened the door lets see what the real industry pros have to say.

    Well im, I’m the technical editor of HEAVY DUTY magazine (www.heavyduty.com.au) which is Australia’s leading Harley-Davidson and American V-Twin oriented magazine and which has been published for almost twenty years. I run a regular column Tech Torq. Readers write in with any problems that they might encounter and we do get lots of letters and emails on all sorts of issues. Never have we had one about a problem with either the ABS or the throttle-by-wire system although anecdotally I did hear of one instance. Both the editor and I have a 2009 Tourer in our garage and despite doing lots of miles have never had a problem.

    im…FYI……

    One of my rides is a ’08 (23 months old now) 103 ci Ultra Classic with both factory ABS and Fly By Wire. I do ride…yes ride… and to date the bike has not been on the lift or in shop other than for standard maintenance services.

    I can say that you better have some balls when you are running 70 plus and need to stand on the braking…cause the ABS does work….thank god…chirp chirp chirp..

    AS for the fly by wire, after all was run-in was (1500 miles), this bike was Dynoed (97 passes on the dyno in the bat cave) by Patrick at Gator Harley in Leesburg FL and has no idle stall nor delayed response…106 ft-lbs flat-line torque from idle through 5000 rpm….SE 255 cams drop off afterward since they are indeed torque cams….vroom vroom vroom…plenty of power at any speed for passing with passenger and loaded….like I said I do ride.

    To all the nay sayers here….ride what you ride…’08 103 ci Ultra Classic to ’08 103 ci Ultra Classic bring it on and lets lite ’em up…if you wanna accept the invite…Ms. Hawg and I will be at the Leesburg Bikefest. Mildly put…put up or shut up! OK, Loser buys the beers for the night…lol

    The Super Ride program is a great marketing arm and will definitely boost sales for HD. Problem is most of you’s credit sucks or you may just be pushed over the edge an run out an buy another….I am really thinking about one to ride a little then tear it down for a base to begin with and take it from there for what I really want.

    Huh? Never heard of any problems with the latest ABS bikes, and my next new Harley WILL have ABS- period. As to the drive-by-wire throttle- well dude, if you take one apart, it’s actually pretty easy to figure out- and it’s a lot easier than routing throttle cables anymore….

    No worries tho- some guys are scared of technology- some riders were terrified of shock absorbers once, I get it…..(!)

    BTW- no police departments have switched from Harleys because of the ABS- that’s like saying they switched because of the brand of tires….. As always, what cops ride are dictated by budgetary concerns, and lowest bidders…….
