A new CVO chapter
« on: September 09, 2014, 09:54:44 PM »

It was very very hard to say goodbye to my Fat Boy after 8 years & 37000 miles of great memories, now she's all dialed in for the next lucky owner, A new chapter of CVO riding and memories is about to begin, I bid all you CVO Fat Boy owners adieu, au revoir, and bon voyage, many happy miles to all on one of the best CVO bikes IMHO on the planet.  :drink: :drink:

Did you trade it or sell outright?

I’ve always found it difficult to trade or sell a bike for the reasons you pointed out – time, miles and memories. Best of luck as you start the new chapter.

I feel your pain, brother.  Sorta like when you were a kid and your best friend (or you) moved away.  Thought the world would be changed forever but actually, you made another friend and life continued.
Hopefully the new owner of your fatboy will be just as happy with his new "friend" as you are with yours.....congrats.

I traded it in, tried to sell local through craigslist but its difficult to find someone with that much straight up cash

Haird, you hit the nail on the head, I would have loved to keep em both but it just wasn't practical for me. The first ride on the SG felt strange, not familiar with the controls or foot positions, I felt like a new rider and very unsure of the bike, sorta like a new pair of jeans just don't fit right, but now with a couple of hundred miles under my butt she's starting to feel much better and I'm really liking all the creature comforts of the glide  :coolblue:
