"New" ''12 picked up yesterday!
« on: August 01, 2017, 03:30:46 pm »
Picked up my "new" 2012 ST yesterday. Blue, Happy Trails Teton panniers, Altrider crash bars-bigfoot-rear rack and Madstad windshield bracket. And now the best part......wait for it.......ONE OWNER WITH ONLY 966 ORIGINAL MILES!

I am very happy! ::003::

congrats on your new ride, Quadidaho, with a simple hello.....
comments with substance will be chastised by soulless pub riders lacking imagination...
and calling out princess trolls will be met with the monomaniacal pruning shears of censorship.....

Congrats and welcome.

Have the final oil change as well, for peace of mind.

 ??? ??? Wow.  966 miles?  It is like you just rescued a dog that has been chained up in a backyard for 5 years....  Let us know when you get 1,000 miles of your own.  I am betting it will be in a week or two....

Terminus-- getting close to the 1K mark. Did 300+ today. LOVE THIS BIKE!

No issues (no surprise), apx 42 MPG with the majority of the day being at 85-90MPH with wind.

This has been my dream bike since they came out.....really scored on this one!
