Just buy the thing already! I'm flying out there to break it in for you!
Some guy sent me a note that he wants to trade an 07 Aprilia Super Moto 450 for my Duc "plus insentives."

Can't say I'll be making that trade.

I put a couple thousand miles on my dad's '05 Roadglide. You're going to love the thing.

I understand that some dealerships are still marking UP XR1200s.

Why would they do that when Harley included the XR in the 100% trade in plan?? That's how you can tell they aren't selling. You don't need trade-in incentives on a bike that sells well. Anybody that buys an XR that is marked up would be a true moron.

Why would anyone buy a marked up XR1200? You can buy an 883 and add goodies and have a faster, better handling bike for less money.

Considering the ones I saw in the dealerships have a half inch of dust on them, I'd say not so good.
Tell them to send it to me... PO Box...

It's better than "plus insertions."
