Groundhog said:I just retired from the Air Force (reserve) in November. Spent nearly 8 years active navy then got a job working for the Air Force and went AF reserve. Spent 20 years there working A-10s and KC-135s. Got activated right after 9-11 for a year and used that opportunity to order an '02 Heritage thru military sales. Nice deal. You basically get the bike for MSRP. I understand that this has changed after I bought mine and now you have to be PCS, they won't let you buy one if you're TDY. What kind of B.S. is that? The dealers whining because they weren't getting the usual 2-4 grand markup on them? That sucks, the G.I.s should be able to get one at MSRP if anybody. Part of the military deal I guess, BOHICA (Bend Over Here It Comes Again).
