There have been laws since 70s, but no cats. Ask a garage to remove on your car. I think that will be the big issue.wvwayne said:I do not understand why people who own bikes made before 06 think they have a free pass when it comes to changing things on their bikes. .
You should be going through tires yearly on a touring bike. If you are considering getting a new bike just for tires, maybe your not putting enough miles on, and probably not worth it.
Also if you have anything on your bike think what it will cost to replace. Depending on mileage, your going to have to come up with a few grand for initial purchase and then the extras.
Myself, I am the mind that I will maintain. Theres not much to a bike. Replace what you got with better. Big bore, gears, performance clutch.
Take 5k from the new bike and put it into yours. Just my opinion. I got 2001 FLHR.
Its your money, and its always fun getting something new. I just have trouble parting with stuff. I would be looking at 2nd bike.
