    Is there a reason other than for a Ride Command update? The BBK seems a cheaper way to go. I'd be curious to hear the opinions!

    well yrs ago. i did the upgrade on a hd. 88 to the 96. cams pipes. a major headache. the mechanics that were suppose to do the job when i inquired quit 2 days prior to me bringing in the bike. Didn't find out till after i picked up the bike. That prob the case. i ended up with 20MPG HD Compared to 34 i was getting. I'm an IT guy not to much of a mechanic. although i do change my own oil an little shit like that.

    My only other thought was trade in for a 17 willow green as that was what i originally wanted. but at time i got the 18 not available. Love the Burgandy /tan.

    Performance costs. The initial investment, while considerable, usually pales in comparison to lifetime ownership costs, post mod. But hell, I'd pay almost anything for more wind and more torque.

    I just bought a 2018! Upgrade from a 2003 Chief, which I still have. Any thing you want to report about reliability issues / warranty?

    I have a 2020 Roadmaster. Have about 1400 miles on it. It works very well and I am satisfied with it. It is my first Indian. I started riding large bikes in 1982 with a Goldwing. Had 3 different Wings. In 1994 bought my first Harley Ultra. Have had a total of 20 new Harley Davidson including 3 CVO's. Should have bought an Indian in 2015 when I bought my last Harley.

    I've cooled a bit on it. It's been tough relearning how to ride, but the Challenger is super duper sweet, though. My garage needs one.
