Trade in story

Well guys 4 seasons on the strom and I am ready to follow in big b's footsteps. This morning I brought the old 06 wee to the dealer to look at an 09 connie. My instrument buttons broke this May when the bike had about 52k miles and I only had the trip meter to judge how many miles on bike, well seems I under estimated, the bike had 63,412 miles!! Anywho, they offered me 3500$ for my wee with luggage + $3500 for my wifes 06 burgman 400 w/1500 miles. Total out of pocket including tax and tags $5875.

The connie is a beast, I rode it for about 25 miles, no buffetting and unbelievably planted to the road at highway speeds. Big B, i did notice a little vibration through the tank at about 5500 rpm, it may just be that I'm not used to my knees touching tank at speed. Any insight?

Waiting now for financing, Kawi card no payments for 6 mos. may as well ride free for rest of year.

I will post again if the deal goes through, I have some farkles left over, that will go to someone for a donation to the site. New heated grips, never installed and some other stuff.
