Default Kingpin or Boardwalk

Looking into getting a Victory...scratch that I'm getting a victory. The question is I don't know if I should get a new Boardwalk or a used Kingpin?

1. Most would say ride both and make your choice.
2. Sure seems the folks with Kingpins never stop bragging it may be the best overall well rounded bike Victory ever made.
3. There are still some new '12 Kingpins out there if you look, and for probably a good bargain. For example I believe a dealership in north AL still has a new one listed for 11K

Depends.... Do you prefer spokes, or cast aluminum ? The spokes may look cool, and old school, but a little more work to fix a flat and when you change tires, most shops will suggest you get new tubes and wheel strips. The Kingpin also has a superior front end with better road manors. The rear shock also offers almost an inch more suspension travel. Unless you buy a low or 8 ball version. Then they have the same rear shock as the Boardwalk.

I had to save that picture. Maybe it's the angle... the color... I don't know, but it speaks to me.

I really like this one too... My bike when it was black and my buddy's Street Glide...

I wonder where Harley got their Switchback idea?
