I think it is time

I have to go to work tomorrow at 10 am. My local dealership is doing a pancake B-fast starting at 8:30. I say all this to hope they have time to order my red SVTC before I have to go to work. I got the blessing from the wife tonight. She LOVES how it sits when we 2 up. She can actually see over me and has more room than the GW. I also pointed out the heated passenger grips, heated seat and heated passenger back rest. I hope to have it before we go to the mountains in Sept.

Congrat's on your decision. From a fellow ex-Winger...you and your wife will love the bike. It really will shine for you both, after the first couple thousand miles, as you both break into the bike, as much as the bike has to break into itself. I so highly recommend that you order the lower and larger wind collector/deflector set, right off. This will enhance your ride home, in the first mile....and especially that you will be able now to pretty much keep in warmth in Sept. Also, remember right from the dealer before you mount...to have the lower left and right side foot vents wide open. In Sept, open or close to suit your cockpit comfort. Just wait until she feels the heat surround her shoulder blades as well as her behind and thighs...on those early morning Sept/Oct/Nov rides.... My wife and I plan to ride up til the first snow flakes fall. That is what this bike is built to allow you to do...so much heat available, and so many watts behind it....what a bike!

My wife loves her totally heated throne....upper and lower. Same for myself, with the tall boy back rest. If you get the OEM one...you still get the three forward positions and most importantly...great heat for your lower back and kidneys...!!!

The SVTC and Eluder Family grows by the week....

NGM, congratulations on the decision, I hope you are able to make the deal. Are you ordering the passenger heated grips the bike has them as an option, just wanted to make sure you knew this before you left and didn't ask them to throw them in with the deal.
Also so glad you opted for the red, the more folks that get red makes the gray more unique. 😁
Good luck, send us the good news.

CONGRATS NGM! To take a phrase from a popular movie... “You chose WISELY!”
Those of us in here who rave about this bike don’t do so “flippantly”. There’s a reason FOR our excitement which you too shall be enjoying shortly.
Look forward to the “herd” of SVTC’s at the upcoming Maggie Valley meet!
It’s gonna be awesome!
