I am curious about the lower bolt pattern for guards. I just refinished a carbonfiber bash plate for my TXC. If it is remotely close to yours I can make one up in a jiffy. Any idea on how to confirm this besides a side by side, if that is what it takes and you have a moment come to Rockville and we can see. This will be superior to an aluminum plate.

Does anybody know of a Kawasaki dealership in MD that allows test rides? I wanna test ride the new Ninja 300, and Pete's Cycles in B'more is staffed by lily-livered spongecakes who have had their nuts soaked in fabric softener.

Was trolling the FFs in G450X Thread and this popped up for anyone looking for a clean beemer

It's lonely being the only one in the BWDR tri-state area with this bike... Paris needs a friend.

There are 9 dealerships or so that indicate they are demo dealers. Don't know if that is every bike in showroom or how it works, but you'll have to work that.

That is a fair price for the BMW... I was looking at a few for a while but opted for the Husky out of nostalgia, my father had a two stroke 500 Husky when I was a kid. It had a horrible suspension but the engine was gnarly!

Thanks....it was just time for me to get a new bike and not one that has been "modified" by others.
