Love my new Black!

Tried to find a good price in Colorado but the two dealerships I worked with wanted way too much and wouldn't deal. So, I bought mine in South Dakota for a great deal and rode it home a week later. I can't stop looking at it!
They put Vance and Hines silencers on it, and a matte black tank as part of the deal, too.

The only thing I'd change is that I'd like the license plate under the seat, instead of hanging under the taillight cluster. Anyone know a way to do that?

Otherwise, I'm totally happy with this amazing motorcycle.

Welcome, and yes, you will love this bike.

Interesting how they swapped out the tanks for you.
Did you request that or did they offer?

Enjoy!

I originally wanted a Black Matte. He only had the regular black in 2018 which was substantially less than a brand new 2019. But, he offered to put the tank on, because he had a spare in the back, for no extra charge. I said I'd have to see it first, but when I saw it, it was perfect! Now the flat black engine parts and pipes match with the tank, and the frame, covers, and fenders match with the gloss. I really like it, and now it's kinda like my own custom bike.

Cool.
The mix match new from dealer may make it a 1 of 1 and possibly a collectors item. 🤔😉

I found the same with the CO dealers so I got mine in CA. Their loss.

The problem with hanging your plate under the seat is a question of clearance. You risk hitting the plate when the shock compresses. The NRC kit is a pretty good alternative.
