Greetings!
Just bought the 2019 Duke 390 and very impressed! Bothers me all the idiots talking and asking about my “little” bike. Almost took it back on day one for a Ninja 650 which also has an upright rider position. Nope! Not gonna happen. This awesome bike only cost me $4500 with winter prices happening now here in West Virginia.

What’s your age Brother? Outstanding that you have found a motorcycle after 40 years!!!

Which box are you referring to? Unsure that I see it

If you tick the box on a post, it enables you to insert that post in a quote.
Or to report the post, if you think it’s offensive or some other violation of forum rules.

Funny, I do not see the box now. So I am not sure what to say or think about that. I'm also sorry I did not reply to your sooner. I have not been here lately with a lot of craziness going on with LIFE. Taking care of three properties, my father, my father-in-law, four dogs and my JOB.

I need to learn what I have to do to respond or reply to posts here. Right now it seems I am not allowed to make any replies to any of the posts or threads.

Cheers Mate,

Jeff

lightning, Thank You Much!

Funny, right now I am not seeing that box. I have not been here at all since I signed up to join here. Life is crazy and busy at the moment.

With Gratitude,

Jeff

I can really understand your point because there is that silly believe that the motorcycle should be at least 400 pounds and 800 cc. In my opinion a motorcycle must be fast enough for max speed 100 mph at the highway, agile, light, fun to ride , with low mpg and capable for fire roads.

I just bought a 2019, $4700 in Oregon. I wanted a smaller displacement bike for around town. I too returned to riding a couple of years ago after a 25 year hiatus. I have a Ducati Multistrada which is great on long trips but almost feels pointless around town. I bought an inexpensive Chinese dual sport last year and found I don't really like off road that much and started using it for around town. Time to sell it and play with the new bike!

Where did you buy yours in Oregon? I purchased mine in Sublimity, a few months ago

Gresham PowerSports. They had at least one on sale with an end date of 10/31/19 so I scrambled to take delivery that day. I could have saved another $200 for cash, but can't pull that together and put on on a credit card. There might be one or two new 2018's in Hillsoboro for $3700 but with close to another $1000 in fees. I actually live in Washington so still have some $$$ to pay for tax and DMV. It looked like Sublimity had a few around for a good price and seems like they are a good dealer. Just a little too far away at the time for me to go check out.
