Hi all, well I just pulled the trigger on a blue 18 grizz with aluminum wheels. Hopefully the wife isn’t too annoyed>:). It was a great deal from let it ride in Rupert, Idaho. Highly recommended dealer. I haven’t seen any other dealers that were this low on a new model year bike and I have been looking all over the northwest. Now on to more research for the mod train. Hope to hear from some folks in the area! Now I can update my signature with more pertinent info related to the forum!

Best regards,
Cleaver

I wouldn't go supporting the dealer yet until you find out what the service department and customer support after the sale is like.
Remember, getting the lowest price is only 1 part of the process. If their customer service after the sale sucks, then did you really get a good deal?
I will gladly pay more to have great customer service.

I was supporting them also because I have a close friend that has bought 3 bikes (KTM) and a couple quads (Honda) from them over a number of years so some of the recommendation is based on his past experience also. Like you said though, I will see for myself. I will update as the process goes along.

Thanks much reogem. I’m super stoked. After looking for months at used I just bit the bullet and got what I wanted. The used and new prices were too close together to bother trying to find something that may have been taken care of. Oh, and go vikings too. (Just not this year, again......) Had to poke someone from Wisconsin. Been a vikings fan for 40 long years. Glutton for punishment.

I'm not much of a football groupie...but I do know that at one of my favorite bar and grills I ride to, can still leave the Viking trophy case on display empty.
Sorry.

I just ordered an EHS tuner as mod number 1. Don’t like how lean these things run. Next will be the EHS airbox and the exhaust. I ordered some 3m digital Camo vinyl samples in blue (to match the base color) to wrap the high wear areas to keep the scratches down. I’ll post some pics of how it turns out. I have to travel out of town to pick her up next week. They are installing a 3500 lb KFI stealth with synthetic rope on Monday for me. I opted out of the factory Yamaha 2000 lb winch and they credited me the difference towards the new winch. So far the dealer communication has been great. I’ll continue with updates as they come. Any questions feel free to PM me. Also, how do you add pics with the drag and drop on an iPad? I’ve been trying for a bit and can’t figure it out. Need a milenial around I guess. I’ll search for pictures help in the forum in the interim.

Thanks folks!

I re-read my post above and I think I came across in a negative manner. Not what I wanted to do. I apologize for that.

Congratulations on the new ride. I wish there was one in my garage. Now get out and get it dirty.

No worries dezz! Didn’t come across negative, just cautious which is a good thing. Won’t be picking it up till later in the week unfortunately so I get to stew about it all week. Love your neck of the woods! Mom just sold her place in PEI. Murray Harbor. Too much for her to maintain at 75 years old with home base being Great Falls, Montana. She would go out for the summers and mostly work on the house and property. It’s a long haul over there. Everyone we met out there have been great people.I hope to head back out at some point and hit the links again. Beautiful county.
