Like I said, I think Pluric qualifies for his own "group" buy all by himself!

Well, Nick may know his suspension, but he sure can't keep a secret.

While quizzing me on my riding style and length of motorcycle ownership
I mentioned that I had more than the Tenere. One of his emails asked for
a list. I can only hope he is more discreet on the whole weight thing.

Tell Nick you want the same deal I got. $500 for fork revalve and springs,
new Penske rear shock, Stoltec Moto jacket and helmet, three year
subscription to Cycle World and a free fork seal change out.

Honestly I don't know how the guy can do it!

Hey Pluric,

As long a your talking deals, I will make you an offer…how about a crate rebate program?

Do you have a pic of the crate that you used to ship your forks to Stoltec? When your done with them put me 1st on the list to make you a deal to *buy-borrow-or steal them as long as they are not a paper sack with bubble wrap

*Must make a second trip from CA to Stoltec and back!

Easiest thing is a $20 gun case.

Nick prefers the hard gun case set up for shipping. All I had around the house were soft cases.
I had a 6X6 long box that a antenna had come in. So I cut it shorter, wrapped each fork tube
in bubble wrap stuffed it with crushed newspaper and shipped it off.

Nick was not amused. I called him a 'Shipping Pussy' and he backed off. Given the choice he
really does want the gun case set up for ease of return shipping.

Good idea! Beats going to the furniture factory and having some oak cases built.

Hey all! My wife went by a dealer in Houston to check out a used 2012 while she is there this weekend.

The used one was not a hot deal, but the manager said he was trying to get rid of his 2013 new stock. He has white and gray.

His out the door price is $13,800. That everything. Tax, prep, fees, registration for a no-option Tenere.

There is no way I want to spend this kind of money right now but you know how it is: the lure of a new bike is strong.

Is $13,800 a smoking deal? It seems like it is around these parts, especially considering that the local Dealers don't even carry them in inventory.

As long as your wife thinks it is, then YES!

Actually it does sound like a good price.

Well, if the used one is fast,ie,raven in color, get it unless you like s-l-o-w. If slow's yer pick, get the cheepies.

With the new improved one coming out in spring I sure wouldn't drop 14 grand on a '13. Just my 2¢

That's why I was asking. Thanks!

Unfortunately, my budget may take me back to a used KLR. If that.

The ravens must be collectors' items already. There are zero to be found.
