Morning everyone! We sure are rocking and rolling on this Group Buy so far! For those of you hell-bent on finding a black peg/1" clamp combo, check out the attachment I attached below. It's a set of black pegs and 1" clamps that look extremely similar to the pegs we offer, just in black! I believe they're from a company called RivCo (http://www.rivcoproducts.com).

Hi,

   Do you have service to Taiwan?

     I am ok with Paypal or others for payment. It is of course to pay shipping fee.

 


We can absolutely ship to Taiwan! Generally we use PayPal for overseas orders. If you'd like to participate in the Group Buy, just send me a PM with your full name, shipping address, and email along with what guards you want (The Canyon Cage and/or the saddle bag guards?) and what color you want (chrome, black, or raw?). Thanks!

I'd estimate 21+ already.  I wonder if Ryan will sweeten the deal if we get over 50 total?  How 'bout it Ryan?  We are know to be a frugal lot ;)  I'm even down for a set of pegs, I got some touring to do and the knees sure don't like anything over 10 hours :o


We were thinking about extending it to 50 but we thought it wouldn't have been fair to the guys with the '08-'09s because we assumed the 10+ Canyon Cage would get to 50 but we didn't think the earlier generation bars would. We didn't want you guys to complain that one group was getting a better deal than the other because we're doing separate Group Buys.  :-\ I think we have a good set up now, though. 25% off and free shipping is quite the deal! Especially for a bar that's already relatively affordable!

Ryan, what's the time period for the group buy?


The last day to get your orders in for the 2010-2012 Canyon Cage Group Buy is Thursday, May 31st, 2012. The earlier the better, though!

Just got off the phone with Ryan. Got them ordered #20.


Thanks for your order! We're up to 22 sets!

Someone should contact Best Western to see if they would be interested in some towel racks.

Haha, I kid, I kid. These bars look SOOO much better than the previous ones!!!

I think you will have more 08 - 09 orders than you realize. Lots of "gray" bikes on the road...

Hahahahaha Yea, I think the Canyon Cages look quite a bit better than the older style law enforcement bars as well but those things sure protect the bike well! We've sold tons of those law enforcement bars over the years too. I'm just curious as to how well a product that protects the bike well and actually looks good doing it is going to sell!

You may be right about the 2008-2009 bikes as well. There sure seem to be a lot of them out on the roads. From our standpoint though, it just seems like we sell a lot more for the 2010-2012 models. I guess we'll see what happens when the time comes!

Placed order with Ryan, #28. No shipping charges to Alaska! That is exceptional.

I have no data on how many of each year bikes were sold (was discussed in a separate thread, but it is confidential data that Kawasaki doesn't release).  Logically, there were only two model years for gen 1 and we are now into 3 model years of gen 2 (who knows if there will be a 4th year of gen 2).  But there might have been more interest in the bike when it first came out- so it might be a wash for now.

But other factors come into play-  the older bikes are more likely to already have some type of drop/crash protection, and the newer bike owners are more likely to be nervous about adding drop/crash protection.  It will be interesting to see how the statistics play out :)

Yeah- excellent indeed!  We might have to start hounding Ryan to move UP the deadline (closer to now) so we can get things moving faster ;)

I wonder- has word leaked out to the "other" Concours group yet?

hi guys , this group buy has just popped up on our uk site, im keen to buy and maybe a few others over here. The sucker punch for us maybe the postage , we can get the adventure bars here , which i was just about to order . Can you give us a price for the additional postage to the uk and then we can work out the exchange rate and see how the deal stacks up, the 25% is looking certain now .

Hmmmm, that is interesting. It'd be intriguing to know how many bikes of a certain year they sold...

Yeah- excellent indeed!  We might have to start hounding Ryan to move UP the deadline (closer to now) so we can get things moving faster ;)

I wonder- has word leaked out to the "other" Concours group yet?

Hahahahahaha! Unfortunately moving the deadline up wouldn't do much to quicken the process because we're basically anchored by the production schedule. The bars are going to take roughly 4-5 weeks to manufacture regardless of the Group Buy guidelines. We are planning on getting the 2009 Connie in here soon, though! I can't wait til we start design work on that Canyon Cage!

Also, word has definitely leaked out! I believe someone posted a thread over at the COG forum and I'm sure other places as well! We should have absolutely no problem hitting the maximum discount. Especially because we're already at 28 orders!

Oh, man, that's awesome! Yea, I could see postage being an issue for some of you international guys but with the 25% discount it may actually come close. Postage to the UK is going to be roughly $45-$55 depending on the exact package weight and recipients postal/zip code. With the maximum discount you're looking at saving nearly $75 though so it may actually be worth it.

Yeah, I've cross posted it to COG, sporttour.net, a couple of ZG/GTR facebook pages, and Two Wheeled Texans.  ;)  Yeah, I want the max discount. ;)

It would be more cost effective to ship one parcel to the uk. There's import duty (5% of the total cost inc shipping) and VAT (20% on top of the final total) that needs to be considered as well. Also the handling fee

$300 + $50 (shipping) = $350

£217 at current exchange rate
+ 5% import = £227.85
 + 20% VAT = 275.42
+ £15 handling fee = £288.42

If one parcel was shipped and depending on the number of buyers, there would be a saving made there but I reckon it'd still come to around the £250 mark

250 pounds?  Are you filling them with concrete????

Sorry....just kidding.  A guy on a cruiser forum I used to frequent filled his highway bars with concrete to "make them stronger"....  ummmmm.....hmmmmm.......
