New or Used
Ghost, I bought my first Vic used, which was an 06 Hammer with drag pipes and lots of chrome and only 8k miles. I gave $7200 for it and rode the daylights out of it till my back (4th back surgery) made me go with something more comfortable. I traded it in on a 2012 (left over) Vision Tour. I just love these bikes. You won't go wrong with either. The engines are basically bulletproof. My brother has a V92 a 2001 bagger and has about 50k on it without doing anything but regular maintenance and he wouldn't hesitate to hop on it and head cross country. I agree with a previous post that you should check out the dealers for year old "new" models. They want to sell them REAL bad.
Either way, good luck, and ride safe!!
