Thanks. That's exactly the company we're thinking about using. It looks like a fantastic tour. We figure that if we get Rugby World Cup tickets we'll do Ireland. If not, Prague-Malaga. Win-win :evil

Canadian MSRP is available

I noticed on the Canadian Motorrad site that the announced MSRP is $9,750.00. Pretty much where I expected it to be. Pretty sure we'll be seeing quite a few on the road next year at that price.
