Scotchgard. That’s how you spell customer service. Or not. Meanwhile, Kali fixes you right up. James talks about his Tiger 800 extended test ride and talks about gloves. Chris briefly reviews the Scorpion Hat Trick jacket, and we learn that Scorpion makes a heck of a rain liner. Speaking of the wet stuff, Harley uses wat… er…. “precision twin” cooling in their new engines. The guys get their love fest on and sing Kumbaya at Rushmore. 2014 seems like a really good year for motorcycles. ABS FOR EVERYONE! STEP RIGHT UP! Then there’s feedback. Lots and lots of feedback!

    • As reported by BMW - “Our dedicated dealers were the key to our success this past year,” continued Andersen in the press announcement. “Despite the tough market, they continued serve our customers well and promote our new products like the K1300S and the K1300GT. They were supported by attractive financing programs from BMW Financial Services. While many other dealers struggled to finance their customers’ purchases, BMW dealers never lost access to good financing, and this will continue for 2010.”
