"That is kinda close to you isn't it? "

Sorry, didn't see that question yesterday. It's closer to me than it is coolpig but it's still at least 100 miles from me. Definitely look at shipping costs and providers. My co-worker had a bike shipped from Texas to Kentucky for $600 right to his door. It's cheaper the more flexible you are, it may have to circle the country before it gets to you but patience is a virtue, or so I hear.

Close is a relative term. My closest Kawasaki Dealers is around 75 miles away or so. But hey for the right price and maybe some extras thrown in. I would be willing to pay the get one shipped if it was new of course. Especially if I have ridding the same model bike before.

I got a 07 - 2000 at kawicity 2 years ago for $8500 out the door. there all gone. don't remember seeing any more 2000 on there show room floor, but who knows whats in the back room. Deal with them all the time and always been good guys working there. If you buy one and plan to trailer it they don't fit on a 10 foot trailer if you have a ramp on it, the thing is 10.5 ft. long with fanders. The thing is the nosiest thing I ever rode but when you twist the grip you better be hanging on. I love it

I've been in SWVA's part of the country, they have to pipe in daylight. Ever heard the phrase 'can't get there from here'? It was coined close to there. It's beautiful country to be sure but make sure the tank is always full.
