I went to Fremont Motorsports this morning and got my first look at the Yamaha WR450 I bought over the phone last week. And my first impression is that it's really, really, tall. While I sat on the motorcycle they measured from the bottom of my shoe to the ground and it was 3 inches. I know 3 inches doesn't sound like a lot but I've never had a motorcycle before that I couldn't put both feet flat on the ground. But I will deal with it and like a lot of other things the problem can be fixed if you want to spend the money.

I paid for the bike and did some of the paperwork but the motorcycle is going to stay there for a while until they get in the parts to make it street legal, and to lower it so I can touch the ground.
Fremont Motorsports is going to be my goto dealership for anything to do with motorcycles from now on. I don't believe I've ever been treated better are dealt with a better bunch of people than I was this morning at Fremont Motorsports. I was told that the sales staff are salaried and don't work for commissions, maybe that explains why the whole deal has been so easy and stress-free. I came in contact with 4 or 5 other people this morning including the owner and was treated in a friendly and professional manner by everyone that I dealt with.
Now I know that may sound like an advertisement for Fremont Motorsports but that's not my intention at all. I said all that because I believe that a business that goes that extra mile to treat their customers in a fair and professional manner deserves to be recognized and rewarded with my future business.

It looks like this whole motorcycle deal is going to take longer than I thought so I think what I'm going to have to do is rent my site at Haggard's RV Park for a month. I'm not used to staying in one spot that long but the monthly rates are usually much cheaper than the weekly rates, and since it looks like I won't be picking up the motorcycle for another couple of weeks I will need to stay in this area until everything gets done.
