shopping

well, my KX is down for repair and I have the urge to impulse buy

so I'm lookin at newer KXs and I see a deal on RMZs

SPRING IS HERE!!! and so are the deals at Maxim Power Sports....NEW 2014 Suzuki RM-Z250 was $7,982.00 now only $4,872.00.. no freight, no prep. Stop by Maxim Power Sports today and see why we are N.W. Indiana's largest power sport dealer. THIS IS NOT A GIMMICK WE ARE OVERSTOCKED ON THIS BIKE AND ARE GIVING THEM AWAY AT $2,000.00 UNDER DEALER COST!!

and

Race season is Here. Time for a NEW Bike? check out this NEW 2014 Suzuki RM-Z450....was $9,172.00......on sale now for $5,307.00 no freight, no prep. Stop by Maxim Power Sports today and see why we are N.W. Indiana's largest power sport dealer.

last Saturday I raced at KI with the filllipinos and late in moto 3 the KX quit shifting, locked in first, so I pull off, cant move the shifter,,,,,, so I hose the bike off a few times and eventually I see this hole in the clutch cover,,,, hmmmm, not good,,,, pull it off and the outer basket is a bit scratched and has 1 big gouge , have trouble getting all the plates out,,, once out I see there is a tooth missing from the kickstart gear, which took a lap or 2 around the clutch basket before lodging in the shift mechanism, oh well, at least its not the trans

If those prices are accurate, you're getting a good deal on a good bike. Last year, I paid $7,600 out the door for the 250.

NIIIIICE - Hearing great things about the new Zuks - Easier to ride than the KX and all the power you need

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"
