My new ride

[IMG][/IMG]just picked up the bike today and since I imported it from the U.S. I have to wait for the import papers to get it on the road. It will be a long 3 days but on the bright side the weather will suck for the next 3 days. I want to than everyone for your help on my thread 1500 vs 1700. You made the decision easy. Bought it from a dealer in michigan who let it go at a reasonable price it even has ABS. Is there a link on how to wrap the pipes and which ones do you wrap?

Did you get that in Ann Arbor. Store front looks familiar. If so, this is where I purchased my VV back in 09. Seen this bike on the floor when I was having a service being done. IMHO Hope you didn't pay what they were asking, it looked like it wasn't given a whole lot of TLC by the previous owner.

Yes it was in Ann Arbor they were asking 14200 but I manages to get it for 11500 with a five year warranty. Bike was gone over by my mechanic all good a few scratches but nothing that could not be buffed out.
