Well, that didn't take long, just made a deal on a new 2020 V1000 SE leftover...I couldn't resist the price, $5,300 (CAD) less than a 2021 and Kawasaki is including an extra year extended warranty (so 3 years in total).  The 2021 has the new skyhook suspension, but it seems that most folks are happy enough with the current KECS system.

Now, we just need winter to go away!

I have a toy carrier motorcycle trailer, so will likely trailer it down.

I see you are in Bridgewater, have you dealt with OCR in the past?

 Yup, I'll send you a p.m. later on tomorrow when I get back from Halifax.

Nope. Definitely no. No. No way. Absolutely not. You are definitely NOT going to regret this!  :031:

You sure you didn't miss the '1' in front of that number?  Even that would still be a good price!
Otherwise they're just giving them away!
