    My family and I recently moved and I started a new job. We are getting ready to buy a house and I’m trying to make my credit picture look better on paper for the house financing. That being said, selling my bike would help my debt/income ratio especially since I’ve only been at my new job for a few months.

    On one hand I love my Gunner and enjoy it a lot.

    On the other hand, I’m trying to approach this as a small sacrifice to make things better for my family and I.

    Adulting sucks. Lol. Anyone looking for a Gunner? If so, let me know and I’ll get you pics and the mod list.

    Lol. I know man. I don’t want to and I probably don’t really need to but I’d rather be better prepared/ready.

    Trust me, I know all about HD. I work as a Harley tech at a dealership. Customers are very confused when they see me riding a Vic. Lol

    So what do you tell them. Hey I work on these all day, I want to ride on my off time. Lol.

    Loans are primarily now credit score. Also your total monthly payments, excluding utilities, can't exceed 42% of your gross income. So if selling bike will get you enough paid down then probably way to go or finance longer, find better rate...to meet that threshold. Of course if you get to know loan officer a bit you can tell them about the extra cash, under somewhere around $600.00 mo you don't have to report. Just saying... HD tech probably has lots of side jobs, right? Good luck brother.

    If you have a really cool bike you don't need a house. Someone will let you crash at their place.

    With Vic prices being what they are does it make sense to sell it?

    I would hate to take a loss on something I was just going to replace later and end up paying twice.

    I second what has been said above.
    If you are considering EVER owning a similar motorcycle someday, do everything you can to hang on to your Gunner.
    You'll never replace it for what you paid for it.
    Look around at the price of the other soft tails today, none of which compares to your Victory.
    The HD Softail Slim lists for $15,899.
    Indian Chief Dark Horse is $17,499.
    Don't sell it, Man.

    Just out of curiosity I've been looking at the prices of both new and used Victory's (so glad I bought mine when I did). They have gone back up. Good luck with your sale.

    BUT lots of spammers it's alot like Craigs List now.

    Hey @crazy4ink
    I've been where you are & sold stuff because I felt I needed to but in the long run it never made a difference.
    Hind sight & experience has taught me a lot over the years.
    Hold on to that Gunner.
