Got a good deal on a 2015 Limited couple years back. At my age (74) it makes the difference of whether i go on a trip or not. 500 -600 mile days are effortless, great power, comfy seat, stereo and handles surprisingly well at speed - just need to be aware of where you park it and dont let it fall over. I fabbed a lift jack that I carry with me!. Still have the Sportys and Triumphs for hacking around on and short jaunts. I still avoid the freeways though.... a waste of good motorcycles..

Yeah the Limited is one helluva lot of motorcycle. But I don't understand how carrying a lift jack helps. Sorry I must be having a brain freeze ...care to elaborate?

What you youngsters will find is that as you age your muscle mass depletes. there was a time not that long ago I could pick up a fallen behemoth like the Limited...not so much any more. Can still do a Sporty though!

Oh I gotcha Akdawg - "just in case" ... smart idea! I know there's no way I could pick up a touring bike. Hopefully you don't need it very often !
