otherwise, i'll be waiting till end of may for my X.
I talked to a salesman at powersports 360 in port clinton Ohio, and they have 2012 650 v-stroms (orange ones, and white ones) for $6,999 plus fee's which then pushed it to $7,400 plus tax and plates, but it is sold as a new bike and you get the zero percent financing with it. Why is a bike with zero miles on it sold as used?

Sounds like the guy is getting rid of the wrong ride I wish the 500x would be here in May, but I was told most likely July.

You know what they say, Picture or it didn't happen. The wee was one of the bikes that I was looking at, And I got to look and sit on it along with the cb500x minuts apart at a motorcycle show, along with a couple other bikes I was looking at, and I kept going back to the cb500x. But if it felt good to you, I'm sure you will be happy, as I have read nothing but good reports on the wee. I was riding a 750 shadow, and am looking foward to a more standard bike. What bike did you have before? and how does your new wee compare to it?

Thanks, Mike

Not taking away anything from anyone who makes videos for youtube, i don't do it after all, but that has to be the most useless bike video i have ever seen.

I watch it expecting the UFO in the background, or the car fire on the right or something of some substance to happen or present itself.
