See now we need to know what color ... and what color the riding gear is ... you can't just leave that to everyone's imagination ... :)

Congrats on the bike and gear .. ride safe .. and always keep you stick on the ice (Canadian's should know this reference??)

is that $6034 out the door including taxes and DMV? Sounds really good, given the MSRP is 6000 (assuming you got non-AbS since Tupi said its black). I am finding it hard to find anyone who will discount below MSRP.

Really??? Wow! I'd be furious as well. We're you told this bike was reserved for you? That is low down. So sorry for you.

Yeah, if you don't give them a deposit, they don't have to hold it.

It sucks though. Bad luck.

I went to get mine today, and they have to order it. So I get to wait at least 30 days. I'm in no hurry for it, and it will be SO worth it!

Better late than never!
:D

me and my bike
Gloves, pants, and boots.
Believe me, you don't want to leave those parts of your body unprotected.
I'd especially recommend getting boots that cover your ankles. You DO NOT want to have an accident with exposed ankles.

As Mikethebear says dude, gear up - it's essential, even I minor knock will hurt on those bikes...

It's up to the OP what gear he wears, not the rest of us. It's his life and his safety not ours.
If it's a case of money, you can always get 2nd hand gear on places like ebay.
