Outstanding deal

You know you won't lose money on that deal & will get to see your daughter riding this season (for a bit anyways).:clap

Looking forward to seeing the pictures in the Dads & Daughters thread.

Yup. But they will get it or drop $100 of their PDI.

It kills a guy looking at dealerships in other provinces or states when I travel and then see what we have to deal with back in Alberta.

Dealer prices...

Don't include PDI, admin and GST.

The dealers around me will have the PW50 out the door at $1600-1700 by the time the fees are added. So it is easy to sell them at $1000-1200 because the things...

Too true.

This 'winding road' lasted about 400 meters. Then about 2 kms up the road, there was another 400 meters of winding road. Hence the need for this sign in Alberta!:D

Wolfman Bag

Which Wolfman bag is that? Does it cover the key & power outlet? Do the straps go under the seat.

I like the lines on it and am looking for a smaller tank bag for my F800GS.

Looks like the GIVI Wingrack I had on my 2002 VFR.

They make them for various bikes, look up GIVI Wingrack application guide to see if they even have a compatible one for your bike.
