    Gonna switch bikes

    It looks like I am headed towards the new tour. I'm not too certain when I'll switch over as it will depend on the sale of the B. I'll let you know my thoughts when I get it.

    Thanks Steve. I am going w/ the basic tour. Not the airbag or DCT. I saw no reason to spend the extra $ for the DCT. I'll probably throw highway pegs and fog lights on first, then a Garmin, and that will probably do it for my changes. Maybe the windshield that lets you use Windex (love bugs dontcha know!).

    I bought a 2018 red one. I'll take possession this weekend.

    They are great bikes.
    We are selling a lot of parts for them and everyone we talk to is extremely happy. All of our local customers can not say enough good things about them.
    More parts are coming out all of the time.
    We will be getting one sometime, not sure if this year. We would want a 2021 only to start with the most up to date for parts. The 2021's have been slow to come out, will see when they are available.
    We hope to start getting more traffic on here for the new bikes also.

    They do look nice...
    I have not ridden one yet so I am always wondering if the new one blocks the wind as good as the previous model.

    No. It is slimmer. I ride in almost any non-ice weather. It was 34 this week and I was out riding. I, most definitely, felt more wind around my legs. I am going to get an F4 windshield on it soon, and that helps with the upper body, but the lower body sees more wind. Some will get winglets, I think that direct engine heat in. I picked up the bike a couple weeks ago.

    Did you sell the ‘13, and if you don’t mind, how much did you get for it? I have that same year.
