Back to the deal...
I was doing some work in Wichita Ks so I figured a short ride, why not go look at the bike. Iím close enough.
Friday I take off in the morning, drive 4 hours up to Rodís, look the bike over for 10-15 minutes, put down a deposit and leave with plans to return next Thursday and pick it up. I drive 4 hours back to Wichita to get on a plane and fly to Huntsville.
The following Monday morning I get to the airport at 47 minutes before takeoff and United wonít let me check my bag. They said it had to be 45 minutes before boarding, not take off. Well there was no other plane available from Hsv to Wichita so as they were looking I made an off hand comment about maybe a flight to Lincoln and the lady says sure, I can have you there for 2 pm. Next thing you know I am on the way to Lincoln.
I call rodís and let them know I am early, and they said come on over! I catch a taxi from the airport(Kurt actually said they could pick me up at the airport!!! But I couldnít impose) and head to Rods.
I do the paperwork and I am out the door for 4pm headed to Wichita. Oh yeah I was in the area for work which I totally forgot.
As I am driving back, the what little sun I had on the overcast day, went down and since it was already cold now it was getting really cold. Iíve ridden through snow before and swore Iíd never do that again. This was getting just as cold. Just as I am getting ready to stop on the side of the road to shake out the frozen hands I see a button on the left handlebar.. I press it and low and behold!!! Heat!!! I didnít know the deluxe had heated grips!
Well come to find out this bike that I got at a very fair price and that I was able to buy a 3 yr extended warranty on had:
Heated grips added
Center stand added
Tall windscreen added
Large trunk added
CTX700 rear view mirrors added
Short windscreen in the saddle bags
Small Passenger backrest in the saddle bags
Wait what! >$2k in add onís that werenít listed and I didnít even know about.
I can only say that Rodís was a great place to deal with and I canít believe how good a deal I got from them.
On top of that, as I was checking out the bike before I left we found the battery cover had a broken tab on it. Kurt ordered a new one and had it shipped to my house in Alabama.
Well I rode the bike to Wichita, didnít get a rental car and rode my bike to work all week and then rode 4 hours from Wichita to Springfield Thursday night and 8 hrs from Springfield to Huntsville on Friday. I slept late on Saturday as I caught a cold in the cold riding. Spent the day Sunday with the wife and went finish the job this week. I am looking forward to a break this week to start measuring for the hitch and trailer...
And Monday I will be ordering front peg mounts and rear crash bars from Charlie.
Enough for tonight, I start the trailer work tomorrow. I bought a wheel in Wichita and found shocks online...
