And that one in Newmarket - HA! Went to see it one sunny Saturday & "Oh, it's in our store in Richmond Hill". Fine, so I make arrangements to see it later on that week. Get there and "Oh, we're not sure where the keys are". I asked them if they even had the ownership.
That bike was a US model that they got on some kind of repo deal. Looks like it was repo'd before it was PDI'd. I found several loose nuts and fasteners. Don't think I'll go anywhere near that deal...
Thats interesting, as the GT I rode felt like a big, heavy, slow steering, pig. It took a lot of effort to pick up and crank over on quick directions changes and I really noticed the longer wheelbase.
Interesting and surprisingly, (a little off topic) the 1200 Explorer was surprisingly agile, changed direction easily and was just a hoot to ride.
This is why I always try to drum into people to ride everything a couple of times if possible as opinions on the good and bad bits of bikes can vary enormously.
|I got a steal of a deal for a new 2011 GT from Sturgess in Hamilton this past January $12000 out the door!|
