I could have put money on that happening. The only question was which Indian you were going with.

I hope it and the company gives you many years of pleasure and support Joe.

Glad to see you're gonna keep those miles-O-smiles going...

I'll be interested in your "reports", if you will. My brother in law wants my bike, but can't swing the money right now (building a house). I can't decide between a Springfield or a roadking, it's time to get back out in the air.

With things as they are Joe; I bet a lot of people would be interested in knowing a ball park number on how much you got for trade in on the 12 XC, the Scout, and if you paid full price for the new one.

I think folks are wanting to know what they might expect if they are given a fair trade in amount. Who knows; it might sway some to stay with Polaris even after what they did.

You got your money's worth out of your XC for sure and we all know it will likely go another 80k or more before needing a rebuild.

Well Both these Bikes were not unknown to the Dealership in Ocala I have nearly triple into them what actually got in Trade for them but my Victory Got $7,500 and My Scout got $6,000 which really Hurt with all the Upgrades had almost 18K in it .. But you can get New Ones ( with incentives ) for 9,000 and most people don't give a damn what you spent on Power, Comfort, and Looks .. But Plainly Speaking I never totally trusted the Scout after the Engine Rebuild and with my Income it was Do it Now or Keep your Rides Forever .. This was over Double what anyone else offered me in Trade ... Those that Offered a Trade that is, Many Dealerships just said Not Interested ..

Rule of thumb dealers don't give a crap about add ons when you're trading in.Will give you little to nothing for them.
But love the add ons when there reselling it
