    Finally, 2015 Kawasaki Versys 1000 with 2700 mi. Can't wait to put a lot of miles on it. BMW is gone. A great day for riding, also. Picked it up at PCP Motorsports in Sacramento. Feeling happy.

    Sweet! Way better than that other bike you were gonna buy :smilewink
    What did you do with the BMW. Don't forget to oil the chain and tighten the drain plug :lol

    BMW was traded in. I'm happy and they were happy. You guys will never let me forget the drain plug thing. I was back in the group in 1 1/2 hrs, thanks to Robert and his generosity. :thumbup

    That is one of maybe 2-3 Asian bikes could sway my Eurofag tendencies.

    Great choice Ron!

    Clearly my ride-along absence is diminishing your core moto-values.

    I was kind of drooling over a Z1000 and then I remembered I lack self-control with the throttle...

    Congrats on the new ride @CaptRon !!

    Lucky you did ok, sometimes they can screw you ,could be the same reason your bike is still up for sale I almost bought a new left over 2015 Versys 650 last year from Hayward Motorsports . this is what I posted on google reviews

    I went to this dealership because the had a motorcycle advertised for sale on craig's list for a discounted price . I saw the add on Wednesday. So I called on Saturday to as if it was still for sale and total otd price .they quoted a good price .so I drove over a hour and a half through 880 traffic .and when I got there and Asked about the bike I called about .they told me they sold it a few days earlier ! But they said they could sell me a newer model for 500.00 more that was in stock , I said ok . Then they said they were mistaken again. It would cost much more .
    Talk about bait and switch and false advertising.
    Look somewhere else for ethical and honest service. ( I called them in advance and they tell me they don't have it , dick heads )
    A week later I found a 2015 Bmw F700gs 1400 miles 9,000
    I added givi box ,windscreen. Wilber's 3 way coming from rich porters in a few days
