    Turner 5 Spot Blowout?

    I heard a rumor that Turner is going to blowout their next batch of 5 Spots for half price at Supergo because they got a batch of Romic shocks with the sticker upside down. Anyone else heard this?

    That was a joke right?
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    No, thats wrong. I heard the stickers have a typo in them....

    Instead of Romic they spell Tomac.

    It's one of those bait and switch situations. You think it's a 5 Spot but it's not. Walmart is blowing out the 5 Spit.

    Not the 5 spot, but the Burners

    Supergo does have 04 Burner frames for $949 or something like it. I've been looking for one of their 20% off coupons... insert evil laugh here...

    from Supergo.com


    This Supergo exclusive version of the Burner is upgraded with the top of the line Fox Float RL rear shock incorporating an on-the-fly lockout and adjustable rebound control.

    The normal MSRP for the 2004 Turner Burner is $1395.00. Supergo bought Turners entire production of Fox RL equipped Burners and is offering this classic below original dealer cost- $949.95.

    This is a one time buy. Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to own a Turner!

    The guy selling a new Burner in the classifieds must be stoked.

    Trying to sell a brand new Burner for 1350 and Supergo is blowing them out for 950. He'll be lucky to get 900 now!

    Yeah, as opposed to say... selling a batch of Burners for (nearly) half price because they have a bunch of non-ProPedal Float RLs. That, of course, makes perfect sense. Especially to those who recently paid full price for theirs.
