changed my mind, give the Buell another summer as my main pony
I turned down a Guzzi Quota yesterday. I don't see Stelvio on your list. Odd enough and v-twin.
I have a 2014 DL1000 i am debating selling.
Just bought a new (old) house and have way too many things to do which take time and money.
Shoot me a text 7097402089
Keith, you can’t sell your V-Strom!
The Forum wouldn’t be the same without you!
Shawn's Super 10 in Pasadena is a really nice clean bike. You won't be disappointed... I think you PMed him...
Didn’t anticipate finding a pre owned one around, but figure it fall under “anything similar” lol
How did you know I like odd bikes I may have to see what they have in the shop
I did yes he sent me some pictures. We met his riding buddy with a super 10 in Barachois Brook park couple summers back
Haven’t messsged you yet as I’m checking out some old inventory new bikes in town so I have something to gauge prices on
The new Guzzi ADV bike looks sweet.
No worries, buddy. Message whenever you are ready or want to drop by for a look.
Looked at them, not interested in one new. The new 850 might be fun
I'm sorta, kinda in the same boat this year (as I was last year as well ). I'd like to get a new bike as I just want a change but its so hard to move on from what you have when it works so well and does most things you ask of it. Plus I find it hard to find something that checks all or most of the boxes you want in a bike. They are all full of compromises (too big, too small, too heavy, too new, too old, too expensive, too techy, not techy enough, on-and-on), hard to find that perfect bike but it is fun looking for it. Best of luck in your search but looking at your original post it seems you already found it .
Love the Buell, lost a bit of confidence in it lost the Stator last summer on vacation spoiled my trip, but that stuff can happen to any 10 yr old bike.
I might check out a few of the 800-850 adv bikes if anyone has some ride days the summer.
I see a couple R1200GS's for sale on kijiji and nlclassifieds... Things must be made of gold ... new they were the same asking price they have listed. IIRC 2014 R1200GS $20500....
Gone the way Harleys went a few years back....
Just checked the price... I was wrong.. $19200
It never ceases to amaze me how different the motorcycle market is up there compared to down here.
With the introduction of the new R1250GS, the price of both used and leftover new GS’ has been dropping.
There are actually some new loaded 2016s out there that can be had for less than $18k with a full warranty.
Bike market up here, both new and used, is head shaking to say the least. It totally goes against what other parts of the country and world do, dealers here seem quite content to just sit on unsold bikes and only reduce the price slightly. As an example, Honda One has a two year old Africa Twin sat on their floor for the past two years and its only been reduced $1500. I believe there is one in Clarenville with the same type deal. Never see it advertised anywhere either, whereas Mainland dealers really work to get last years models out of their showroom to make room for the latest models. Plus you'll never see a full lineup on the floor either, BMW usually only has a few bikes on their floor at any given time so if you want a specific model you'd probably have to order it in without even seeing it first. With used bikes, sellers think they are worth almost as much as new one but buyers want them for next to nothing Its a weird market for sure.
Canadian (east coast, in particular) used bike market is out to lunch! Quebec and Ontario aren't as bad and I got a smokin' deal on a well farkeled used FJR from BC last year. In general even with exchange rate factored in along with the costs of bringing a bike over the border, you can often get a much better deal on a used bike from the USA than buying in Canada.
For a new bike (current model year), prices are very comparable from what I have seen and you don't have to deal with import hassle or warranty issues.
I think for such a small dealership, Avalon Motorrad has a pretty good cross section of their line up on the floor. I was in 2 weeks ago and saw one of their least expensive bikes, the G310 roadster, a new F750, F850, a R1200GS, a new K1600B ($$$), a R Nine T Urban Scrambler and Keith's demo R1200GSA (smoking annual deal). With limited floor space taken up by snowblower and winter snowmobiling clothes you may not realize what goodies are hidden out back. I often see several brand new machines stored out back inside when I take my bike in for service. Maybe have a chat with Keith to see what he has or what's coming. I believe BMW often has an event showing off new models in early Spring which should be coming soon. I guess my point is if you don't see it you may have to ask at The Toy Box.
That's not a bad lineup for such a small place, more than what I've seen the few times I've been in there. What was nice about them was they brought the majority of their lineup here for the demo ride last summer, good opportunity to check them all out. May have to swing by for a look at the new F models, didn't even realize they had any in town, local dealers don't advertise much.
There you go. I had an opportunity to sit on the new F850GS a couple of days before the demo ride in August. Keith said it was the first one in North America at the time if you can believe that and it was available to ride Aug 25-26.
