  I could have saved a lot of money if I waited until now to buy one.

  LiveWire MSRP before Tax Credits, $21,999.00
  "Harley Davidson" LiveWire, before Tax Credits, $29,799.00

  Ouch!

When I first saw that price I thought of you. At least you can say you paved the way for the others. And your H-D version might hold some collectors value in the future.

  @HDBitchin,

  Or maybe I paid the way for the others!  As far as a Collectable, well, maybe.  Meanwhile, it's still fun to ride, and Thankfully has traction control!

Cheers,
Ferrous
