Well Ive been for a test ride.....
« on: November 20, 2013, 06:58:25 AM »
Well I've been for a test ride.....
And I am very impressed after coming off a Sprint ST 1050.
It is effortless riding, so good in fact I think I will buy the Demo bike.
It currently has 11000Kms on it...
Comes with the following:
1. Top box and back rest.
2. GPS mount and cabling.
3. Service done.
4. New Screen as the current one is scratched.
5. 12 months Rego.
6. New grips.
7. and its blue..... :062:

Best of all it is $16500 ride away with my bike as trade in.

I am taking it on a test ride with the wife this Saturday to confirm the deal.

Oh and the bank has given me pre-approval.  :046:

I am little worried about the Klms what are your thoughs?

11,000 KM (6835 miles)? The bike is barely broken in!
And you got the best color too!

Judging by comments from Mrs. Coconut and other pillion passengers on this Forum,
Mrs. Frosty will be just as impressed, so you can look forward to bringing it home  :028:

Frosty,

Mate sounds like one from the original consignment. With those km's any bugs should have been sorted by now. As far as two up the pillion in a million and I have ridden from Sydney to Toowoomba and return with no ill effects; very different to my 2007 Sprint ST. It's a great motorcycle that you'll enjoy.

Cheers,

Scott

Frosty

Sounds like you know what needs to be done.  If you don't, you will be wishing that you had. My Mrs couldn't fault it, I'm sure your Mrs will be hooked.
Always ride in control.
