Well….Mel is graduating

When we first got the Street, I showed Mel the Lowrider S and that when she got proficient at riding, she could graduate up to a Twin Cam……well, it's been 3 months and she's ready. We took the Street in for the 1000 mile service yesterday and she ended up testing several bikes…..finally, they brought a Lowrider S down from the inventory and fired it up for her….she rode it and she was torn between a regular Lowrider and the S. The S comes with the 110 vs the 103 HO…plus electronic cruise control and a bunch of other options…..

We're taking the Street down this afternoon and see how far upside down we're in it because it's only been 3 months……and to see what kind of deal we can make……but we'll be trading the Street in and driving home today with a Lowrider S….

It's been fun knowing y'all and learning from all of your priceless tips and knowledge…..I'll try and drop in from time to time…..thank you for having us here and thanks to the admins for a wonderful forum…..

Congrats, that Low Rider S is a beauty. I see her in my future as well. Enjoy the ride!

How much did you get for the trade in? I took my 750 with 715 miles on it in and the HD Dealer I bought it from only offered me $4200.

I bought my 2015 XG750 from a dealer in March 2016 with about 350 miles on it and only paid $5500, so don't expect a lot on the trade in (unfortuantely).

We got $5000.00….we were negative a couple grand plus the parts I bought and installed….I didn't think it would be so soon that she would move up to a bigger bike…..we had planned on keeping it for at least a year…..it all worked out….she's happy (that's what matters the most) and we got a smoking deal on the Lowrider S…..just a couple hundred over MSRP…..can't beat that…..returning customers has it's benefits….

Just traded my Street for R70000, which, depending on the time of day with our currency, is about 5000US I think. Love the bike but I just can't get comfortable on it. I have moved to a Fat Bob which has forward controls and feels far more comfortable, although a touch (!) heavier.
I think it will also be far better for two up riding, although we still need to try various seats.

Yeah that Negative Balance Adds up. Mainly Why I cant Trade Up just yet. When I traded the 10 Majesty, I still owed some money. Which was carried over to the new loan. I loved the bike. Yamaha Credit was treating my loan like a Credit Card. After 3 years, I still owed about 1/2 the amount. Got tired of dealing with them. Took 45 minutes and 3 people to get the Payoff. At least the HD Financing is a Simple Loan. I pay a Flat $195 month. Even when they tell me the Required Payment is Less.


If I Could Upgrade, The Roadster is nice. Also like the Breakout styling.
