Where are you located? Looks like you've added the Klock Werks(or Indian flip) windshield any other option?

I like the bike, it's just more bike than I want. But you are right, I am going to take a loss. I am fortunate enough to do so.
So what do you think you will go with next? I came from a Yamaha FJR1300 to the Challenger and I am very happy. My only issue is the seating position can be rough on my lower back which was never an issue on any of my previous bikes. Just got the rider backrest so will see if that helps.

Might be. My bike has no lien also. I haven’t ridden. A challenger only set on one a dealer. You live in north or South Carolina? I live in central Mississippi. Think we might possibly meet halfway?

I do not think there is very much difference in these two bikes size wise, same Wheelbase?? They may drive different, but you stated the Challenger was too big. Maybe a little more practice?

Chieftain: 790# dry, 1" lower seat height
Challenger: 796# dry

800 miles of city driving is enough practice for me. I got into 3 situations where I couldn't maneuver the bike being that I am 5'10" 150lbs. I haven't sat on a Chieftain yet but it looks like the center of gravity is lower, which would help.
