Olympia dealership is selling 2020 new R3 ABS for $5755 otd. It is kind of far for me.
I am hoping a dealership down here will come close to that deal.

What’s the dealership name? You might be able to ge them to deliver it to you for a small price. You can also rent a u-haul and pick it up yourself. If not, then I can ask people within my riding group if there’s someone willing to help deliver it to you. You are in Vancouver, WA. Correct?

A U-Haul trailer is only $15 to rent. It's awesome. I brought my last bike down from Seattle on one.

U-Haul has a motorcycle specific trailer. Costs $15 approx. Look it up on their website.

To add to this, Uhaul trucks kind of suck for hauling a bike. The wooden rails along the walls are more for keeping items off the shell of the truck and not built for strapping things down. If you strap a bike to them they may break. I've made custom wheel chock setups when using a UHaul truck when I have to (like when also pulling a car), but the trailer is definitely the way to go.

I hauled my bike from Southern Oregon with a Uhaul trailer. I agree it worked well, with a good design and the proper straps and a steal of a price. You need a hitch though, if I remember correctly.

I got an agreeable deal on a new 2020 R3 at the local dealership and purchased it today.
They will deliver for free.
I cannot wait to hit the parking lot and start practicing!!

I do not have a vehicle with a tow hitch.
Thanks everyone for offering help and ideas.
Portland dealers never replied back with a concrete number.

I finally have a bike in my garage!

Is this battery tender the right one to get for my bike?

Thank you!

I was hoping you wouldn't get the ugly teal/orange version. I've always loved Yamaha Blue.

That should work just fine if all you wanna use it for is your motorcycle. If you wanted to also use it on a car/suv/pickup, then you might want to take look at a charger with a higher Amp rating.

I knew that I shouldn't have looked.... But I did, and am now scared for life.

My God! What was Yamaha thinking of putting those colors together. As well as, putting it on the street.

There's a weatherproof one which is unfortunately quite a bit more expensive. search for battery tender weatherproof 800.

I have one of each, I keep one on my bike in the garage where it's nice and dry and I use the other once a week or so on cars that aren't being driven enough these days: modern cars have a lot of parasitic draw from all the electronics, and only being driven for short hops every couple of weeks is not enough to keep them from running down and potentially shortening battery life or giving you a surprise when you go to start it.

Note that you still don't want to leave it in the rain or let the plug lie in a puddle, but under an eave or perched on the tire under a fender is fine.
