Joe . Here is the way it usually goes.  New rg. Old rk.  New rg.  Old rk.   Of course the new rg is going to win.   How can it not 😁?    It is newer and has tons more goodies on it.  So that is why I don't get too attached to things that can be replaced.  Just saying. Stuart.

You know Stu, the funny thing is that the RG doesn't have much more than the RK. It is a little more comfortable and I did just add the heated/cooled seat but other than that I've pretty much got the same goodies on both bikes.

When I had the 13 Ultra, the two bikes rode differently because of the bat wing. The RG is pretty nimble without the fairing weight on the handlebars and it makes almost as much power as my RK so it's about as fun to ride.

After reading all the great comments and advice, I think, at least for now, I'm going to keep them both and ride them when I can. I'm down from 4 bikes to two and I've got plenty of room. If Harley ever builds another one that I just can't live without I guess I'll get rid of one of the old ones, or maybe not...

Take care,

Joe

Two bikes is necessary.  One might break (or it might just be cranky).  Three bikes is not inappropriate.  With that you do have an emergency redundant backup bike for those times when one of the other two is broken (or cranky).  So you're not being overindulgent until you've gone past three bikes.  That quantitative analysis does only apply when there's just a single rider in the household.  Multiple riders does up the MBR (minimum bike requirement).

I'm thinking Don was justifying his own stable more so than he was offering advice for you selling/keeping your bike(s). IE: the voices in his head at the keyboard again. :huepfenlol2: :huepfenlol2:

Knew that logic was logical.  Makes perfect sense to everyone.

I rode my green bike today. I’ve had it advertised for about a week with no action.
I told the wife it didn’t sell and we “have” to keep it because nobody wants it.
I’m not sure she believes me but I’m going with that excuse!

It’s still a blast to ride, no drips, runs or errors on this one. Only took me 20 years to dial it in!
I’ll keep it for my solo bike on day rides with the club.
We discussed just keeping 2 but………3 will work for me.

I traded in a 2013 CVO Road King last year in April for a 2020 CVO Road Glide. I LOVED that King. Many custom accessories, blueprinted 124" motor, the whole works. I got comments on it everywhere I went. It had about 90,000 miles and was starting to nickel/dime me with problems. My Road Glide has almost 50,000 miles now and as much as I miss the King, I don't regret the trade. The bike isn't as flashy. In fact, the paint scheme is rather bland. But I love the new motor and newer Rushmore features. A better all-around touring bike. The King will always have a special place in my heart.

Women- Don't know what they want; just know they don't like what they have.
Men- Know exactly what they want; upon getting it they lose interest.
I heard someone say this years ago and it stuck with me. During my wife's 20 years with the MoCo we bought at least 20 new Harleys. Some I kept for a number of years but the fleet would become too large and they would come out with something new I just had to have. I am down to 7 bikes now (3 Harleys and 4 from other brands) and I feel that is a good number. I never get attached to stuff and the only noun I am truly in love with is my wife. (as far as earthly things go) I say if you've lost interest in something and you're just tripping over it in the garage sell it while it's worth something and put the money towards something else that has your attention. Too many times guys save stuff and it starts to suffer from neglect. Now you go to sell it and it's worth 60% (or less) than it was when you kept it all shiny and nice. I've owned several toys that I had no intention of selling but someone wanted it more than me and made me an offer. 3 of those times were at a show when I was proudly putting the toy on display when someone walked up and asked if I would entertain an offer. In all those cases the money meant more than any emotional attachment I had to the vehicle. I guess you gotta follow your heart and use your best judgement.
