    Evening all, while driving past a local dealership today i spotted a 2013 red/white 109 with 2600kms on her.
    Looked it up on the old interweb and decided to go have a test ride. Felt stiff like it still hasn't been run in yet but was very nice to ride, maybe a bit more comfy overall compared to my 2010 m90.

    Would be nice to upgrade but kinda really on the fence about it.

    yeah the colour isn't the greatest, its a blank canvas but i know what i would like to do with it mod wise and the rough price to go with it too. If it had pipes, rear seat and back rest for the wife i prob would take it.

    It’s a really nice bike and it’s not black and it’s different to everyone else, and it’s been modded nicely too! I actually have grown to really like the red...

    No JR I have had the red since 2013. I hated the photos of them but loved it in real life. AND it matches my camper

    Your sitting on the fence, obviously everyone here on a boulevard forum will tell you to do it. Go to a Harley forum and tell them The same thing see what happens lol. Have you rode a rocket yet?

    Hi all, drove past it again twice earlier doing errands. As Sean said its not black which i like but not entirely liking the red colour to be honest but it could grow on me lol, hell i didnt even like the look of the M series when i first saw started looking at cruisers but love them now.

    They rang up and offered 6k trade on my 2010 m90 and $8300 change over ride away for the red 109. I said not bad but still not sure then he offered me the black one they have 2011 with 41k kms at $8500 for 3k change over . Thinking i might wait until i feel ready to upgrade....

    Don't get me wrong would love a 109 seems to fit me a bit better don't feel as hunched over holding onto the bars. Have just bought another car for the wife as the old one was run into the ground and in the middle of selling our house so i thinking wait for house to go through then look for a 109.

    Hey Ken is it the red or the piss poor white/black stripes? I was like you, didn’t really like the colour and the stupid stripes, but Neddy boy’s bike looks super cool with all his mods and the colour is really nice in the sun...But when the time is right you will know!! Then the world is your playground.

    Hi Sean, yeah it is the colour i not keen on. It is nice in the sun and the fact it only has 2500kms on it is enticing, i do like the black 109's but prefer something with a bit of colour to it, but been thinking and just doesn't feel like the right time to bite the bullet... YET.
