Decisions, Decisions, and Hi!
Hi, I am a retired army guy now living in Taiwan. I've set my mind on buying a bigger motorcycle but here they are around double, sometimes more, than what we would pay in the US or Europe.
For example, I am aware of a Highball that could be for sale. New here it would have cost a whopping $29,000 US. This one is 2013, 17,000 kms and is still $14,800 US. That for me is a lot of money to spend and with Polaris's decision about the brand I am really at a loss as to whether I would dare go for it. It seems an incredible amount of money compared to new prices elsewhere, and now with the plug pulled....! Any advice?
To give other examples, an Indian Scout Sixty here costs about $22600 US, and even a HD 750 Street is $17,400 US or thereabouts.
Like I said in my first line, I am just a retired army guy, retired after 33 years service, so I do have to consider possible re-sale values if I decide to leave Taiwan in 3/4/5 years and return west.
I know this is meant to just be an introduction but I am making the 4 hour round trip to the Indian/Victory and the HD dealerships tomorrow, so any advice would be great.
