New owner in NJ

I just purchased a 2008 Road Star Silverado. So far I love the bike! Purchased it with 10,400 miles. The bike came with heated grips, Vance & Hines pipes and custom LED frame lights The frame lights are super cool! I purchased the bike from a dealer and they did not even know that it had the frame lights. I found the lights by accident because there is a key fob that nobody knew what it was for. I pushed some of the buttons and discovered the lights.
I am looking forward to some great rides!

Thanks for the replies. I just found that my bike came with a Cobra fi2000 power pro tuner. The dealer did not even know that it was installed. I purchased the bike from a Harely dealer and the salesman told me that they just wanted it off their lot because it was a metric bike. He told me that they did not touch it and would not work on it. I guess that was my gain because so far I estimate the bike has $1500 in accessories. They also blew it out at a great price! I feel very lucky that I found it

Welcome to the forum Dave. I hope you feel good about making me envious . Great looking bike and as you said, the dealers loss is your gain.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Thanks again. I was really surprised how the dealer just wanted the bike gone. The salesman told me that they sold it to me for what they gave the owner for it on a trade for a new Harley. I got it for well under book value.
