Well, I gave it a couple weeks and decided that if the dealership still had the 06 anniversary and I could get the right price, I was gonna take it home. Salesmen love me. I walk in, I buy. lol.

Anyhow, here it is right when we got home:



And here it is staying cozy warm in the shop:



I didn't get to ride it much, but I did rip up and down the road a little. The pipe was still smokin a lot after I shut it down... so I know it wasn't really run at all

Now, off to the FAQ to find out what my first mod(s) should be! lol

Thanks, guys! no worries about scratches that way. :) She made it home good.

Just checked the plugs for the fan.. they were good! And I checked the fuel pump! It's good too! I'm pretty happy about that!

Congrats, My $.02, if you ride any rough terrain I would do skidz all around first. Hell of a bike, enjoy.

Looks good! Those tires in the back look deadly!
They are my ice riding tires. Sled studs in them. They work so great.. 100x better than ice screws or anything else, and they last forever. The traction is amazing.

The only problem is they're for my Z400, so the bolt patter on the rims isn't the same. So, I have to decide if I want to try and find new hubs for the rappy that have the honda/suzuki bolt pattern, or just get an extra set of rappy rims and mount the tires on them.

Very nice!! Good pick on the color :lol: Is that a crew cab titan? If so does the rappy fit in the bed with the tailgate up? It is a 5 and 1/2 foot bed right?

Yep, 4 door Titan. Nope, tailgate doesn't quite close. Maybe if you aired out the tires it would. Straps work fine, or I also use a 2 place sled trailer to haul as well.
