Hey everybody, just picked up a brand spankin' 08 Silver King, didn't get quite the price I was looking for, but didn't want to drive 4.5 hours to get a different one. Either way it was a lot less than MSRP. Traded in a 09 orange/black GSX650F with a Delkevic DS70 slip on exhaust. Got the King on Monday night, just went over 200 miles on the odometer today on a chilly 39 degree ride in to work. Only had the F for a year, but the limited availability of the King, along with strong discounts and 1.99% financing swayed me a bit. Love the bike so far, "A" mode only since I figure I had better learn to deal with it either way. I've had my license for 18 years, and this is the most bike I've ever owned, with a 09 HD XR1200 now being second. I expect to use the power this bike has and just want to make good friends with it first. I think of it as a pit bull, you gotta respect the powerful breed because if you don't, well things just might not work out too good for you. At any rate, I don't usually post a lot unless I know something, which is not too much about this bike yet. I just know that it has more hp than my daily driver car, so I think I will take it easy for a bit. Glad to find a forum, I usually join whatever forum I am driving/riding so I know all I can. Oh, and I think I have to do that rectifier/regulator recall.......again. I had just got it done on the GSX. Nuts.
