Thumbs up Movin' On Up!

I want to thank everybody for all the good information and advice about the 9 that I have received here. You have all helped me put about 18,000 fun miles on the bike in the 20 months since I bought it.

I've had my eye on the Voyager for quite a while now, and there is a dealership about 150 miles away from me that has three brand new red and black non-ABS 2010 bikes still in the crates. They are offering them out the door for $13,500, and it looks like I will be picking one up on Monday.

So, thanks again, and we will see you guys around!

Ride Safe.

Congratulations! The Voyager looks amazing in red/black. I wonder if they dropped that colour scheme at the suggestion of a certain other motor company ... it's what I always think of when I think of an Ultra.

If you put 18,000 miles on a 9 in that time, imagine how far you'll go on a Voyager ... enjoy.

It turns out I was reading Google Maps wrong, and it was really 300 miles to the dealership. I'm glad I decided to take my trailer, because 300 freeway miles on a brand new bike would probably not be a good idea.

The 900 on the trailer headed up to Rockingham:



The Voyager on the trailer and headed home:



It's now in my garage!
