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!
He might be but I am not...... Remember this...

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.

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.

These bikes are so bulletproof. There have been no changes since introduction, besides BNG. Why not save several thousand and get a gently used one?

Yes, that $13,800 includes tax, title and license, which go to the state, so selling price to the dealer must be in the mid $12's.

Maybe I should switch to pine and bury the old springs in them. Or else oak may have to go on the mantle or above the fire place…open casket.
