Talking Welllllll, I went and did it!!

Before ya'll go and start holler'n bout no picture, didn't happen, I can tell you with 100% certainty, It DID in fact happen!! I just came home with my brand new 2012 Voyager ABS. Metallic Graystone / Metallic Spark Black. Since I have been up at 1600 yesterday (I work nights) I NEED a nap so Pics tomorrow.
And I need to find a way to tell the wife. That's the part I'm really scared of But I must say, WOW, what a ride! It's everything I imagined and more. I was cheese'n all the way home. Thanks to all ya'll on this forum for talking so good about the bike. It really helped me not talk myself out of it. I need to read the manual now and play with the buttons and knobs while I'm sitting still. Don't want to have a boo-boo while I am riding and look down to figure out what I'm pushing on.
I need to give a plug-in here for the folks at Village Motorsports here in Unionville, Va. They were AWESOME to work with. So I look forward to getting in my first service and 1000 miles so I can really open her up and cruise. We are riding down to Orlando, Fl next month to visit my dad and our oldest daughter and granddaughters. Till the next time; Ride Safe

Congrats on the new ride. I have a left over 2010 and when I get done with one ride I can't wait for the next ride. I considered Village Motorsports but hot a killer deal on the leftover 10 at another dealer. If you are considering upgrades I suggest RACNRAY's throttle mod first. I live south of Fredericksburg in Warsaw, VA. Maybe our paths will cross, I'm in Fredericksburg from time to time. Enjoy your new ride.
