    Another in Blake's MRP (Motorycle Relocation Program). Who's gonna step up and file adoption papers now? We know Blake is just the foster parent. :lol3

    I wonder what the shipping and build charges are?

    I dunno, but I'll bet Blake worked it all out. If I remember right, he's purchased one or two bikes before.

    Oh, no doubt. But I am genuinely curious how much a dealer charges for having the bike shipped to their store. That, IMO, should be built into their price margin. Same with a build charge.

    don't worry, I lurk a lot here in the regional forum.

    I found three new leftover 2012's that were in a price range worth looking at. A couple at different dealers in Dallas, one in the Portland area. The cheapest was the $9,999 and the other two were about a grand more. ($10,989 and $10,999).

    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 :D

    Cool beans, man.
    Rock on Garth. :thumb

    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.

    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.

    I've seen that kind of thing firsthand in Florida in a state forest across legal numbered roads. Rumors there were that it was put up by hunters so that bikes wouldn't spook the deer. Fortunately no one was hurt.
