Love at first sight since I saw her at the dealership.
I couldn't stop noticing that your bike is next to a car (Suzuki of course).
Does your dealership sell cars and motorcycles ?
Here in Australia, cars and motorcycle dealerships are separated. (or water sports or others )

There is a mix, some dealership are Moto-Specific others Car-Specific, others mixed. BTW customer service in this specific dealership sucks. Kind of strange, in my country most of the Japanese car dealers have very good service.

they look awesome, just curiosity, is it ok to put different tires ( brands) on your back and front tire which have different treads or patterns ? Don't you think that will create challenges in terms of balance etc. ? Sorry I am a naïve rider that is why I am asking , I am also thinking of changing my tires soon as well ..

from what I learned there are no issues in mixing tires, after all I am still alive :D ...some "experts" even recommend mixing (y)
...post some pictures if you didn't already

FortNine, Royal Distributing or Pete's Superbike is where I shop

great looking 650 XA I guess the only thing "missing" are; Oxford heated grips (highly recommended), better skid plate and some engine crush guards....and yes Aux lights (mandatory...jk :) )

and front fender riser kit (that I still need to get or make)

also if you are concerned how the knobby tires will do on asphalt, they perform super great, I can't even tell I have knobbies, the only time you'll notice is when rolling out of the garage, surprisingly good experience. My first and only set for TKC80's F+R and was very happy with those, but decided to try a few different brands and if I am not happy, will happily default to TKC80's again.

I'll throw in a quick pic... just brought this 2018 home today, 1450 miles on the clock. I had a 2009 Wee and sold it last summer. Regretted selling it right away. The 2018 is a nice upgrade. I'm here to check out what top and side cases you folks are running. I want smaller, single helmet top box and slimmer side cases.
