Local dealer has one.

Stopped in at Pro Calibur in Vancouver Washington today, Was out for a ride with no particular destination and I thought i would go drop my phone number so they could call me when the first unallocated one arrived. He told me it would be hard to call me yesterday. He said the service guys were putting it together as we spoke.

I asked to see it and was told ...no.

The bike is going to be a floor demo for a week or so before it is delivered. He offered to let me do the paperwork to buy the bike but said I couldnt pick it up for at least 5 days.

He really should have taken me back and let me see it. hard to do paperwork on something 20 feet away that you aren't allowed to look at. I may go back tommarow even though its a 2 hour round trip for me.

He did however offer to take my phone back and snap some photos for us Stromtroopers.

Anywayz...

Hey Rogue Reaper,
You stole my bike. My L.B.S. told me yesterday that my red one would be there shortly within the next two weeks. Maybe they delivered it to the wrong side of the Country.

I am really kinda butthurt they wouldn't let me look at it. They probably could have got me to sign papers. But there is a nice used bike I checked out today as well for about the same outlay.

I may go back and look but at this point I will buy somewhere else and probably wait till I can see a Khaki one.

They missed out on the instant gratification purchase.

Did they give a reason why? Most places don't let customers in the service area for fear of injury/lawsuit.

Yeah, Insurance. Which is really a BS claim, as a service tech for many years we used this line to keep annoying customers out of the bays.

My dealer has a Khaki one coming in two weeks. They have a new 2012 Super Tenere on the floor also for a killer deal. There should be a new ride in my basement any day. Yamaha or Suzuki?

I'd take the Tenere but it really depends on the kind of riding you want to do...

I dunno man, I used to work as a computer tech and we didn't allow anyone in the service area for insurance reasons. Not really that someone would get hurt but more to do with customers damaging something or gaining access to other customers personal information.

It is however still surprising as most sales guys will do anything to make a sale!

Cool , I've got some parts to pick up at my Honda/Suzuki shop , I'll have to see if they are sitting on one yet. Yes , they should have let you see it. They of all people should know that for many , bikes are impulse purchases. Love it , I'll take it , where do I sign. I think I like Khaki a little better though.
