Oh the agony.

Well it has become quite apparent that South Dakota is not a huge market for the CBR1000RR my dealer is yet to recieve a single black one. I talk to the dealer about once every other week and keep getting the end of this or beginning of next month answer. I go outside each day and it is like 70 degrees with nothing but sunshine. Damn you Honda and your red CBR's.

Re: Oh the agony.

It's not just South Dakota buddy. I feel your pain too. My dealer has had one machine, yup, the red one, and zero since. BTW, I'm in PA.

But I do have the seat cowl for my 1000rr.

I would think you would have to stock the "flagship" if you were a honda dealer.

I would guess it's all in the demographics of the area. The local dealership here sells about 5 600s for every liter. They still have a few '03 954s, and just sold their last '02.

Re: Oh the agony.

the wankers here in Raleigh haven't even begun to sniff one yet either....every time I'm in there, I get the usual, "should be here in another 2 weeks"...nice move, Honda...


and when they finally get them in, they're gonna be the red/black models...I am holding out for the silver/back instead oh well, I'll just continue to wait a little while longer...

"Wankers"? When did you turn British?

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

Re: Oh the agony.

I guess we chalk this up to how the market is in your area. The dealer I bought my bike from has one of every color right now. I talked to a friend who lives elswhere and they only have R&B. It's all about supply and demand right now and dealers that sold lets say, for shits and giggles, 300 954's and 15 600's. Well it's pretty obvious which dealer will get a crap load of 1000's in mutiple colors. Just y opinion I guess. But I know how you guys feel. When the 600RR cam out las year I wanted a black one and ended up getting R&B since I was #1 on list and had my choice. Man that was a horrible 7 months.
