Sometimes there is no local guy or the local guy doesn't sell what you want. There are no new XT225s locally at all here. I know, I called all the local Yamaha dealers. I bought my used XT225 locally, at a Suzuki shop.
I bought my helmet in Wisconsin because noone locally sells decent helmets.
I will buy my jacket and pants mail order because noone locally sells decent motorcycle apparel.
Such is living in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Have a nice day.
