Thanks Joe. That's what happens when you become an ole' dog. Done with the kids, weddings, college etc. It was a long haul. I was going to wait till spring also but Kawasaki had a great 0 down $99 month for two years on this bike. Payments go up of course after 2 years but more than likely I'll pay it off one way or the other. Also being end of season and new bikes coming out the deals out there are crazy. That puppy fully dressed the way you see it. 4 miles on it for a check out ride by dealer was $8,000 plus a 2 year warranty. Looked at another Vulcan 900 classic. The regular one not dressed and they dropped those prices down to $6500. No prep fees, shipping etc that they usually tack on. That's usually another $800 they sock you with. You should check out the Vulcan Mean streak 1600cc http://www.kawasaki.com/Products/Detail.aspx?id=210
Listing for $11,099 but I've seen a bunch of the bigger bikes with like $2,000 off list or $1 over invoice right now. Tough choice really. A lot of great bikes out there. Neighbor of mine has a 1200 sportster. Neat bike. Sooo many bikes soooo little money. LOL
