So I just signed the paperwork today and got my local dealers last 2008. They had 4 of them less than a week ago but then they lowered the price to 3997.00 + TTL. I got lucky and sold my 86 200x in time to put money down on the last one they had (I'm still keeping my 86 350x). I finally rode it today as well. I think I'm gonna like this machine. It feels very comfortable and I'm sure there is a good amount of power there. It was had to tell in the snow/ice, I kept spinning the tires. I still haven't taken delivery since I just put it on Layaway, but it will be paid off by March 31st so I can get all the rebates and such. I look forward to learning from and interacting with this community. Thanks for making a forum dedicated to this machine!
