Thinking about buying one. However, they seem to be unpopular. I can get a great deal on a 2015. Fuel processor, V&H Twin Slash slipon, mint condition with 2400 miles. I can get it for under $10,000! KBB says it's worth $14,210. Seems like a steal to me, but what's the problem with Switchbacks? Would YOU buy one?

I dunno if I like it, but the guy who works right beside me has one and he loves it. For perspective, he traded out a 1200 sporty for it. So it might depend on what you're used to.

Decided to keep the Low Rider. I've owned 2 SuperGlides which I traded for "baggers", and was sorry later on, so I sold them and got a dyna back. I traded amy Street Glide for the Low Rider, because even at my age (66), I like the performance, feel, and look of the dyna family. I know if I bought the Switchback, I'd just feel like I was back on a "bagger". They look like USEFUL motorcycles, but maybe not much fun. Thanks for all your responses. Appreciated!
