Cool beans, man.
Rock on Garth.

My mini rant was on the greed of some dealers.
I just never heard of such a thing not already being wrapped up in the advertised price.

A universal dealers fee sure, but not pyramidding fees. Especially for having the bike delivered to the dealership. That should just be the cost ofbusiness if you are a dealer.

But wth do I know.

These guys got a good chunk of that grand back in fees, but chances are the other places added some fees as well.

The bike lists for $15,999 so I don't mind taking $6k off and giving a grand back. I'm ok with $5,000 off on a new, zero mile bike with full factory warranty.

There's a huge number of 2010's leftover, but a few improvements made the '12 worth finding a deal on....unless you're married to the red bikes

I traded the Guzzi 1200 Sport in on a '12 Ninja 1000, but after I got the Stelvio I didn't ride it much and it was a payment - so I sold it last Fall.
Great bike, took a few spectacular road trips on it, I just didn't want the payment at the time.

It reminds me of an area - if you're headed for Aspen Ridge coming from Salida, and stay to the left at one spot where the trail splits....the "wrong way" trail goes on ahead, over a little steep spot and down into a meadow before it dead ends.

It's south and East of Aspen Ridge; closer to Salida.

WEll it looks like that guy was nearly killed. Very close to jugular slicing.

I have gone through a barbed wire fence thrice on my moto. Twice were my fault and i just was going too fast to see the line, the third time was a legit backcountry trail closure (Asshats!!). Let me tell ya it is no fun and with the right wire could have caused major injury. ugh gives me chills just thinking about it!

Well at least you won't have to ride through Amarillo in a 100 year storm aftermath.
