    Yes.
    I bought a 2017 with 4000 miles for $6400 at the dealer near me.

    It only cost me $97 for new progressive springs up front, and $245 for Progressive rear shocks on my 2015.

    Now my 2015 is actually better than a stock 2017.

    There are always deals. Keep your eye out.

    If it were me..... I'd start up a new thread.
    You'll get more traffic related to your need.

    I hear ya, a friend of mines wife got rid of her sporty and got a scout. She loves it, couldn't believe how smooth it rides compared to the HD. He likes to take it for "test drives", says it's a blast to ride. He's got a chieftain.

    We've been riding Scouts everywhere. My Chieftain sits home. I'm going to have to put it on a battery tender.

    Working on a saddlebag setup so we can carry some stuff. Been on some all day rides, and am not missing the Barker lounger on wheels, lol.

    With your New Hampshire, accent ( not as bold as Boston ) and manor, this reminded me of Ye Olde Yankee Workshop. I like that piece of land you are on. What part of Eastern TN is this near. Ingenuity on the bags by the way.

    Outfreakingstanding video -- lots of fun. And I loved the way you used the PVC for DIY spacer production; I never knew you could flatten out PVC so easily, either.

    Now all we need to know is how you're going about making the violin (I think it is) on the wall.

    Thankyou very much!
    Well...
    If you're interested, I do a 12 part series and teach violin building on my channel....

    I also build a fiddle using only materials from Home Depot.

    I was recently in NOLA for Samantha Fish’s cigar box guitar music festival. Some freaking awesome musicians rockin home made instruments. Sounds like something you might like.
