Bit the Bullet and Bought One

As you can see in my post below this one, I asked for advice from members of this board. Here is the post I made:

Thanks for everyone's feedback. Just so you'll know, I took your advice and put down a deposit this morning and will pick it up tomorrow. ('08 Black/Red) I took a little test ride around a dealer's parking lot and couldn't really tell much about it. Two things I noticed right off that I didn't like but probably can be fixed is the position of the shift lever. It is to high and I had to take my foot off of the peg to shift it. The other was how easy the throttle works. I think I must have looked like a kid trying to drive a standard shift the first time. It was hard to keep it steady. I just hope I enjoy it as much as I have my Raptor over the last 10 years. If I like it as much as I think I will, I will probably sell my '07 Rhino Sport Edition as well. Hint: The '01 Raptor 660 is for sale as of today. Thanks again to everyone.

Congrat.'s on the new bike! It's gonna feel awkward at first. At least it did for me. You'll get used to the IRS and the push.

Hello and welcome. Duramax as is the diesel? Love that new GMC with engine braking and 765lb.ft...

Same here with adjusting to the throttle. 13t really helped. I've also ended up with cuts near the bottom of my thumb from the bolt head above the throttle after a big air landing.

Xstriker. I did some shopping around and got a variety of prices. Found some left over '08 that started at $4399. But when you sat down with them, they began adding all sorts of things. Like freight, prep, property taxes, etc. One started out at $4499 and with my '01 Raptor as a trade in, it came out to $6850. I bought mine from Bartlesville Ok. Cycle Sports. $4399 +$12 for paper work and I paid the taxes when I returned home to Tx. Total with taxes was under $4700. They had some '09 Limited Editions for $5599 + the $12. I completely understand a dealer needing to make money to stay open, but I don't want him making all of it off of me. This is the second 4 wheeler I have purchased from them and they have been very up front every time. It was worth the 300 miles one way drive as far as I am concerned and will do it again the next time I am in the market. They also carry Suzuki, Polaris and Harley Davidson.
