I am new to this forum and wanted to ask a few questions. I am looking at buying my first bike(Harley) in the near future. I was wondering how reliable are the new engines? I plan on getting a used bike, so are there certain years to stay away from? What is considered 'high' miles for a bike? What type of scheduled maintainance are required? How long do brakes, plugs, wires, oil, etc. last? What is the going rate for labor? I know these are more than a few questions, but I would like to be informed. I know 'stupid is, as stupid does'; but, if you don't ask, you'll never know. Thanks in advance. Please be kind, after all I'm a FNG. Oh, is shopping on ebay a good idea or not? Thanks again.
