    Correct,Big Canoe. We pay the tax when we buy the Tag. But wasn't stuck with Dealer Prep. Just MSRP.

    My dealer just called - my CRFL arrived yesterday just before closing. I'll pick it up today at 4pm and go for my first ride around 6pm today. Can't wait. Like a kid at Christmas.

    Congrats! Have fun. I'm off to Prague....not that one. Here in OK. Break in miles....300 the book says. Then Oil change and off to no telling where. Yes, I'm an Old Retired guy. Last Summer 1000Miles of the TAT on the TW200. Before that Copper Canyon Twice on my KLR. And so many places still on the R1150R. It's True, the older I get, the smaller my Bikes are. Minimalist Touring for me!

    When you consider that if you finance it it will only cost me $150/month, I didn't really care about the $300 fee was more concerned about getting the first one ASAP. Honda's finance rate is 2.99% which is pretty darn good. I've got the cash but would rather keep it for other things.

    I think the quality is typical Honda. Fit and finish is very good. The only funny thing, The tool kit has two allen wrenches in it, and that's it. :lol3 Have to cut costs somewhere. I'm going to ride it a bit today on the street. I'm taking it in Friday to get Kenda K761's put on it. It's an 80/20 tire, and I'm an 80/20 rider. :D

    Cant wait to hear your thoughts on how it does at 55/65 MPH. Thats the sweet spot for most of the paved roads I ride.

    At $5,400 as a blind estimate I may have not been that far off?

    Here are some more pictures of the bike. I'm going on Friday to get Kenda 761's put on it. I'll be doing some street riding today. The bike had .2 on the odometer. Handguards are next. I'm thinking Acerbis Rally 3's for this bike. I'll order them before I head out of town. I have some KTM folding mirrors that were on my KLR250 before this, going to dig them out of storage today.
