Normally it's not a problem if the poster is posting as an enthusiast and not as the vendor. Your first post was not clear as to which one you were.
Great to hear. Thanks for posting. I have 6 Himalayans so it is nice to know that I can get some dealer support nearby. Nearby being a relative term in Montana.
Is this your place?
I came across this the other day.
Good to see they come with ABS...finally.
Even if it's basic ABS.
Seems RE does not really follow model year specs exactly as a company. Guys in Denver said they will change parts and specs mid year so you need to look at the bike and see what's on it. And thus early 2019s do not have ABS.
The more dealerships RE has and the more time people ride the Hima will enable it to become more accepted as a viable ADV bike for the masses over time. The aftermarket has embraced it for sure.
I'd like to have one in my garage at some point in the future!
Yes, sure is.
LOL! Yup. I live in Billings and ride a 2015 Triumph Tiger XCx. There's nothing "nearby" that's much good to me. Had a buddy haul my bike down to Harris in SLC since he was hauling a Ferrari 458 Spider down to SLC for maintenance. I'll just probably do my own maintenance most of the time.
That's my plan as well. I figure I can replace a top end quicker and cheaper than hauling the bike twice to the nearest dealer, and I get to be intimate with these things.
I was looking here in Colorado Springs a year ago and found most were marking them up way beyond the national re pricing even wrote re and they said “must be a mistake” they promised
To take care of it but last I looked my locale dealer still was overpricing
I bought my Tiger from a local used dealer (Hansen Motorsports) at 10K miles, and the only single entry in the maintenance book was an oil change at 3K miles. So I had no clue what the former Seattle owner had done. That's why I decided to have Harris Motorsports do a proper 12K check. But I figure that it's FAR cheaper/easier for me to just figure-out how to do my own maint on it from here on out. I bought the 600 page service manual on CD. Wish I was rich and could always just pay someone to wrench on my stuff though... as I much prefer just playing to wrenching.
P.S. The pic in my avatar was taken just a few miles from you up on the Beartooth Pass. I get up there on my bike and in my convertible about 5x a summer. I also ride/drive the Bighorns a lot. I rode from Dayton, WY through Burgess Jnct over to Shell in January of this year. I've been up there in snow a bunch over the years, but never rode completely over the 'Horns in JANUARY before. It was sketchy coming down Shell Canyon in the permanent shadow of the mountain. I just kept the bike in 2nd and idled all the way down. No braking, no turning, no acceleration... just delicate leaning around all of those tight corners on white hard-pack and clear ice. Hardly breathed the entire time until I came out the bottom. No heated gear, so I was pretty chilled by the time I got back to Billings that evening.
Cool, Maverick's is more or less across the street from me. Wonder if they allow demo rides....
