Just paid a deposit on a 2017 manual Tri-color. Was going to wait for the 2018s to come, but the dealer in Scottsdale made too good a deal to pass up. I figure I can pay taxes & put all the accessories I want on the bike and still be well under the msrp. I spend half the year in AZ, then travel all over North America in my Winnebago Navion RV towing the bike on a bike trailer for the rest of the year ...retired Will fly down from Seattle in June to pick up the bike. Currently riding a V-Strom 650.
