I Did It! I'm a Thunderbird Owner!

as of this coming Saturday, that is. I've working with Baxter Cycle in Marne, IA, for quite a few months on pricing, trade in value, accessories, etc, etc, and this coming Saturday I swing down there From Sioux Falls, SD, on my trade in ('08 Kawa 900 Classic LT) and pick up my new 2011 Thunderbird. I'm so excited I could dry hump a utility pole! HAHA!

I'm getting the paint job that has the white upper and blue lower, with a thin blue stripe near where the upper and lower meet. I'm also getting the longhaul seat, rider back rest, detachable passenger sissy bar and luggage rack. I traded some of the "Value Package" for credit towards the purchase. Eventually, I'll be getting foot boards and maybe a windscreen.

I think the only mod I'm looking at doing is raising the license plate up flush with the rear of the fender. I think it sits too low, but we will see.

here it the exact bike:
