I was surprised to hear that. Of course, we seem to be selling mostly hard core dirt bikes and sportbikes in ColoSpgs. I'm now officially saving my $$ to buy one.
I would have thought in your area, off-road bikes with FI would be a big hit due to the extreme elevation changes you can go through during a ride. Around here, many of the dealers I've been to are out of stock, and have been for a while now. Maybe it's because we have so few choices for truly off-road worthy bikes that can get a plate here in Kommifornia.

I guess the good news for you is if he's not moving them, then he's more likely to cut you a deal.....
