You're lucky then! I was told by my dealer they could only get silver ones by then, Red ones would be a couple of months later...

Unless my dealer screwed it up big time, My Order went in Feb 2. I think by the time it arrives, it could be July/August already. They are shipping it on 29 May.

Spoke with my dealer yesterday. I'm waiting for a DCT model. He got verification from his Honda Canada rep yesterday morning that he would see the AT's on his floor starting May15 thru June 15. With the DCT MODEL being "LAST" to show up! They are a POWERHOUSE dealership and only have 3 AT's designated to them. And only one DCT, So I will need to purchase it asap if I hope to have the first one through the door. Who knows how long before the second wave arrives.
But enough negativity. I'm still super excited to buy one!!

Blaksled, What area of Canada are you in? My deposit is on a red 6speed with a Toronto Powerhouse dealer (Markham Honda). When I put my deposit down the first week of Feb, he had 3 manual tranny bikes spoken for (one black, two red) and one DCT pending a deposit.

Well, I decided to wait it out for a red DCT. I'm being told August, but my dealer also admitted that it was within the realms of possibility that it could slip even further beyond that so who knows.

In the meantime, I've just bought a 2nd hand Kawasaki KLR650 from a mate who, with good timing, had just put it up for sale. I must admit, I didn't think I'd be spending my summer on a KLR, but it is what it is.

So this is goodbye for a while fellas, reading about Africa Twins every day while I'm waiting almost 6 months to get it is going to drive me crazy, so I'm going to take a break from the forum. Hopefully by the time I get back on here, we will be in a wonderful new era of working heated grips and crash bars that everyone can agree upon. Enjoy your summer riding guys, see you all later in the year!
