Visit to National Powersports, NH dealer
« on: October 19, 2013, 11:42:42 AM »
I stopped by yesterday.  They've got lots of bikes on the floor, mostly C5's: OD green, silver, black (which has nice, off-white fender-stripes I like), and the new "tan" which, even with the black frame, headlight nacelle and fork tubes, looks fantastic!  I got a first-hand look at the green B5, but I have to say that in person, the very dark, metallic flake green paint isn't my favorite.

They've got a traded-in 2012 OD green C5 with a complete D&D exhaust in black - 641 miles, $5k.  They started it up - it's loud, but oh my goodness, what a sound!  8)



One of the reasons the header looks so big, at least on this one, is that it has a full-length heat shield on the outside.  It's kind of hard to see, but take a look at it from the left side:





I was also surprised to see what looked like a pretty complete selection of D&D exhaust parts in stock "on the wall", including slip-on straight and up-swept silencers, and complete header/silencer sets.  Also NFG EFI silencers, bags and brackets, seats and other bits.

Dealerships are fun!

I'd wish they made a nice curved header pipe - like the iron barrels have. They look good ! Sounds like a good dealer- I haven't seen any of those products here. :(
