CVO's are great bikes if you have the $$$. I've owned several HD's but decided to buy a CVO because I could. I've always enjoyed buying and installing all the add ons, possibly as much as riding, but this time I bought the CVO.
I did my research and found the CVO was a much better deal compared to buying and installing everything myself. Typically the resale value of a CVO bike was higher than the others as well. The SE engine was a big part of the decision too.
