Yup. But they will get it or drop $100 of their PDI.

It kills a guy looking at dealerships in other provinces or states when I travel and then see what we have to deal with back in Alberta.

Too true.

This 'winding road' lasted about 400 meters. Then about 2 kms up the road, there was another 400 meters of winding road. Hence the need for this sign in Alberta!:D

Wolfman Bag

Which Wolfman bag is that? Does it cover the key & power outlet? Do the straps go under the seat.

I like the lines on it and am looking for a smaller tank bag for my F800GS.
