That IS a seriously good price! Congrats.

I'm guessing that with the economy in the crapper, the market is starting to become pretty saturated for such a specialized model of bike.

Back when I was thinking about getting one I was quoted $27.87/Mo. for full coverage - $250 ded comp & collision w/State Farm. Don't know how good that is, but it seemed pretty reasonable to me.

I was quoted $1200-$1300 for the 15,000 mile service by a local high-end Indy shop - Boulder Motorsports.

That and several other things were what took me out of the market.
