Been thinking, did I make a financial mistake buying a 2013 Night Rod Special? With 2012 being an anniversary year. Not that I have any plans to get rid of it.

No worries. EVERY year is an anniversary year as far as H-D is concerned. a 2013 is a year newer even if it's the same identical bike.

Ride and enjoy. Repeat as required.

The Anniversary model was a Horrid bike, painted silver and nothing like the 2002 it was suppose to be paying tribute too, you made a better choice getting a DX, actually since 2009 the DX is the best choice in Revo powered bikes to buy (being that in 2008 the Best Revo bike ever offered, the D model, was still in production)

All the anniversary bikes do is make the owner think he has something special. It's not worth a plug nickel more than a non-anniversary bike when you sell it... unless you can find a moron who thinks it's special too.

Vambo - are you posting pics from family album again? + adding nonsense description to it?
If I wanted special I'd buy it. You don't own neither F nor NRS so who's might be mad. And there is nothing special about your bike either lol. You know the drill...

The 08 D. The best bike no one wanted. I think 50% of the 08 D's were sold to Miller, I got the other one.
