I've been looking around for months now. Still new left over bikes out there from 2016! The leftovers are going away. I have made offers on three different brands of motorcycle but the dealers seem to be real proud of their bikes. Some have even RAISED the prices on these "old" bikes.      A week ago a dealer was stuck near list price and I told the sales guy to ask his boss if he ever bought a stock and couldn't sell it later for what he bought it for. Same difference here. There is a reason you have a new leftover that is four years old now. Take my offer and generate some cash flow!! No luck so far.

It's near Winter so my looking is almost over.               Sad

I keep hearing about how the economy is having problems, but sure seems like people around here are out spending money like normal, maybe even more. It might be a good thing the Tenere 700 is selling so fast and in short supply, or I might have even less garage space.

My company never even slowed down.

No new bikes but I did order a new tire for the FJ-09. I was going to ride it to work tomorrow so I was checking the tires. Oops, cords showing. It's a PR5 with 13,528 miles.

13,000 miles? What do you do haul it around in the back of your truck?

No new bikes here either. But since this started, I have gotten a new rifle, a new pistol, gifted another pistol to my brother which I replaced just before COVID, several sets of iron sights, a .22 suppressor (still in jail), ammo (gack! that's an ordeal), 2 advanced training classes, a dress carry belt/holster/and mag pouch, a western holster, and at least 1 scope. I think that's it.

Anyone going to buy new during this Coronavirus time?

I did. Not a two wheeler, but I did sell the Harley and purchase this 2020 Can Am Ryker Rally back in mid July. Very different from my usual two wheel bikes. This has been a lot of fun with no regrets, something I was concerned about since I've never had any experience with anything like this before. I've been setting it up for long distance trips by adding luggage, Zumo GPS, drink holder, cruise control, windscreen, upgraded the sway bar and end links to eliminate the twitchyness at high speeds, and a few other accessories. I've really come to like the adjustability of the handlebars, footpegs and brake pedal that allows me to stretch out on long rides. I've since also sold the Moto Guzzi Griso, thinning it down to just two machines, the Ryker and the Kawasaki.
