Last Photo of my 2010 H-D Ultra Classic

2010 Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic

My last photo of the 2010 Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic.

I’ve traded it in on a new 2014 Harley-Davidson Tri-Glide.  I’ve told myself for quite sometime now that when the day comes I don’t feel comfortable on 2 wheels, I’ll get myself a 3 wheeler.  Well, I still feel comfortable on 2 wheels, I simply just wanted to get one!

I’ve been riding 2 wheelers for over 40 years, and I want to try this now.  I guess that’s the real reason.

The dealer (Superstition Harley-Davidson) gave me a fair price for my trade so we made a deal.  I’d like to think I got a fair price because I took such good care of it.  Plus the fact this will be the 3rd H-D I’ve purchased from this dealer in 11 years.  I bought the 2010 Ultra Classic new and put over 30,000 miles on it.  It had been serviced every 5,000 miles like the owners manual said.  New tires recently, new brakes on the last service that they performed for me, etc…  This has been a fantastic motorcycle.

When looking for a new Tri-Glide, it’s all but impossible to find one on a showroom floor out here.  They sell to fast.  I was told by one dealer they only produce 100 Tri-Glides a day at the factory.  I can’t confirm this, but if it’s true, maybe it’s by design to keep the demand and prices up!  Just my thought on the matter.

The dealer here didn’t have any Tri-Glides on the floor, but fortunate for me, they did have 2 on order that weren’t sold yet.  Since production hasn’t been started, they were able to change the color of one of them to Black like I wanted.   I hope to get in within a couple of months.

So, stay tuned for my new ride and more motorcycle rides soon!

  1. Keep us posted… As we all get older we are constantly evaluating our riding abilities. Though I still like 2 wheels I know the day is coming sooner than I would like when I will have to step up/down to a trike. I am looking forward to your post on the new trike and what you miss and don’t miss about 2 wheels…

    Ride safe and I hope we meet down the road somewhere…

  2. Can’t wait to see it! Congrats!

  3. It’s a time that could be in all our futures. I’d go for a TriGlide too. Made by HD and carrying a factory warranty. Not a warranty from HD and then one for the trike part from whoever did the conversion.

  4. Going to put the hitch on it?

    • I’m not sure yet. I have some concerns about the H-D warranty if I install one.

      • Understand that. Iwas in a Ford dealership years ago and watched a man nearly stroke out arguing about a warranty claim on his transmission.

        The ford folks were not honoring his warranty because he had never had it serviced IAW the standards in the owners manual. Not sure how it ended but I get all my vehicles serviced properly now!

  5. It sure seems to be the trend doesn’t it? I’ll be interested to see how you compare the two! Enjoy!
