I live near Pittsburgh, PA. I just got off the phone, after an hour, talking to about twenty different dealers. No one has a V or a Wee, and I really, really want to sit on a Wee and ideally lay down some cash.

Help? Anyone? Where can I find one of these? Any idea if I could order an '08 still, or whether I'm stuck until '09?

Check Cernic's Cycles in Johnstown and Duncansville.

Back in February of this year I found a very leftover '06 listed on Powersportsnetwork.com. Brand new for $4999. I even had my pick of colors... red or silver/blue. I drove up from Baltimore to get the red one and rode it home. They might still have the blue one at their Duncansville store, but I doubt it.



I'd suggest expanding your "search radius" and be willing to drive a bit to get it. Look in more rural areas where the shops are probably selling a lower volume of bikes. That's where you tend to find leftovers. I'm sure there are leftover '07s out there if you look hard enough.

My shopping strategy: Be patient. Frequently check powersportsnetwork.com and cycletrader.com. Lots of times dealers put new bikes on eBay as well. You can also use Google's "advanced search" tool to search all craigslist listings for used ones.

Good luck!
