Traded in my bike today!!!

So instead of trying to transform my Thruxton into a comfortable machine for me and resulting in ruining a Thruxton, I opted to trade it in today. A brand new 2014 800 XC SE is being delivered to my home on saturday morning!!!!!! The dealer gave me an offer I couldn't refuse in addition to the manufactures $600 of accessories promo. This dealer is in Orange County NY and has a 2013 Explorer, 2014 Explorer, 2014 Explorer XC, and 2014 Tiger 800 roadie all new leftovers that he wants to move. If you want his info let me know. Can't wait for some warmer weather, anything over 35 and I'll be out. Any factory accessories you guys would recommend?

Congrats! I like the Triumph center stand and heated grips. I'm sure a whole bunch of people will chime in to tell me I'm wrong though. Lol.

I bought my '13 in January of '13 and it was among the worst mistakes I ever made. It didn't stop snowing 'til June. I almost went nuts.

I know how you feel. I traded two bikes for my 2012 800 xc, and can't wait for the weather to get better

I just bought a '14 800XC on Saturday. Already came with the aux. lights, upgraded bash plate, radiator guard and frame protectors. I added engine guard, center stand, headlight protector and a t-shirt with my 600 bucks.

How do you like the aux lights? Do they project well?

That's cool. I am talking to my dealer rep about trading in my 2014 Scram on a 2013 Roadie. I have two Scrams and would keep my '06 Scram. I had an XC but I didn't use it enough to warrant the XC set up. I know the Roadies will handle the roads perfectly as well as the fire roads I do on occasion. I was in Middletown in October for the Eastern States Championship at the speedway. I drove down and I am envious of the riding opportunities in the Catskills. I may have to make a trip down there this year to ride.

Locomotion? I almost bought that SE last week but found this in the White Plains dealer the next day, outrageously loaded, and oddly enough, sold BY Frank at Locomotion just in September, and traded last week with 1,900 miles for a Street Triple. Enjoy, and see you around Harriman!

I bought my Thruxton from Frank, but I got the tiger from Brendan at BMG in Middletown, he is dropping it off this morning. We will definitely run into each other, I'm in Monroe...

Don't know yet. Dead of winter bike purchase not so conducive to bike riding. Got out for a couple of laps around the neighborhood before it snowed that night. But the lights are freaking bright.
