Do you remember what the retail $ was on that? Just being curious.

So I heard Pacific Motorsports is moving out to Langley and closing down their Triumph division. Might be a good chance to pickup some goodies they don't want to move.

Nope, not me. I know that there's one other gixxer that has the exact same fairings as mine.

Today i went to squamish with my 675R friend at around noon and came back at around 3.

Not the RC390 but this is the 390 Duke. The RC390 is $500 more. Holeshot charges roughly the same for PDI/doc/admin fees.

Yep. All the KTM dealers I've been to in general seem sketchy. Too bad. Nice bikes otherwise.

If you purchase from the Island they will pay for your ferry rides.. Prices are slightly cheaper and customer service is much better. If you guys didnt see my post way back on my buddies Holeshit review on his 390 Duke. Basically they fucked up/didn't do the pre-inspection work on two 390 Dukes(his and his buddies).

If they pay for the ferry rides it's totally worth it. What better way to break in a bike than on some sweeping costal roads

A salesperson at Pacific told me that a few weeks ago ... at least that the business was relocating to Langley. He didn't mention that they were retiring their Triumph franchise but I was confused because of International's new shop out there. Pacific has sale/lease signs on the outside of the building.

Very interesting. Apparently they plan to be in the new location for next season.

With British-Italian and now Pacific out of the Triumph business there is only one Triumph dealer in the Lower Mainland (International).

I know Daytona on Hastings closes 2 or 3 months a year for the winter season but it seems early.

I plan to upgrade to the rc390 next season

An impromptu shoot last evening with my bike. No, it's not fixed. Parts are in Canadian customs right now which is why I only shot it from this side.

Your bike looks so much better and more aggressive than other k8 gsxr's. I'm not really quite sure why though.

So I swung by Pacific to get some oil filters before they move away... Any Triumph OEM parts(in stock) will be cost or close to cost(depending on your haggling skills). He mentioned they will be gone early-mid october, so now's the time to get your OEM parts!

Thank you

I'm insured until the end of October so maybe one of these days lets go for a ride and maybe you can try to figure out why my bike looks so badass to you? lol
