I went on a ride with some friends to a harley store I believe in Bentonviile Ark. Hundreds of bikes there and I kept looking for another 9 to show up. I was there for about 2 hrs. and finally a white 9 showed up. We compared and discussed what we had done to make them our own . Something about H-D riders , Not very welcoming to the metrics. A salesman approached me and asked if I was looking and I told him I had a 9 . He said he couldnt give me very much trade-in for it and I quickly told him I was pleased with what I bought. It was hot but I went and put my m109r jacket on and wore it proudly. I think alot of H-D riders buy to fit in, just my opinion.
