Default Pulled trigger on new lowers

I thought long and hard about trading/selling my '10 for a '12 Tour but decided I'd take too much of a financial bath. Plus, my bike runs great and it's setup well for our riding already. So, I put my parts list together and shopped around. I decided to go with Don Wood Victory parts. Great guys. I spent the $$$ yesterday for the bars, lowers, locks, iPhone connector and the air management kit.

I also considered waiting for awhile to see what the aftermarket would produce and decided I wanted the air management system before the fall/winter riding season. It's been unseasonably cool and windy this summer and I expect the riding season to be cool this year.

I already wired the bike for our electric vests. I'll probably add the heated seats/grips later this year, as well.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to putting on the new system. I'll post pics and detail the install later.

I am looking into this also, I have a couple requests for quote out at different dealers.

Did Don Wood give a good discount off MSRP?

I just got my XC in May, like you I don't want to take the financial hit of getting a new one, although the red is tempting.

Yep. 20% off retail.

Athens, OH. I chose them because Internet tax is free! I'd have to pay ~10% tax if I bought the parts local in CA.

Yea and that just on those. If you buy through me I'm not doing 10% 15% or even 20% off...I'm making bigger waves doing more like dealer Cost plus. So really if you need anything hit me up. I'll give you the best price I can.

OH! Just to let you guys know. If your just a normal customer and walk into Honda east you will get 20% off. We love making deals!!!
