Bummer. Maybe they meant they haven't got to the east coast? Wait, they should be there FIRST if anything.

The rep is either misinformed or telling a white lie. My blue X12 was scheduled for May 12th but hit the dealer & was ready for me with all launch addition accessories installed on April 24th.

Can't believe they would all lie just to make me and you feel bad, Luke.

What kind of people hang out on these fora? One's with excellent photoshop skills if you ask me
Here's one of those imaginary Explorers with a local landmark in the background. I picked it up last Saturday.



Sorry about the quality. It's a cell phone photo on my way home from work after reading your post.

So my dealer says his guy is in Georgia doing the tech course and he is 'hopeful' that the bike may arrive late next week.

I am not pinning my hopes on it because I don't want to get my hopes up but it is a step in the right direction.

Fingers crossed for good news for you too Luke.

I ordered whatever they get in Blue. They never asked though I expect that given they placed the order in late December (they called me to say Triumph needed to know what color I wanted) I expect I was on the list for a launch one.

I hope it is, as a few weeks ago the wife said "So how much is the bike again?" and I said probably close to $18k with taxes and stuff and she said "Oh, I thought you said $23k, so that's good". If I had only said $19k there would be an arrow can in my near future; oh well!

Truly! If his wife doesn't have any more periods than that sentence, he had better forget the bike and start buying baby furniture

You have to admit that was a helluva run on sentence. Then again, everyone is a friend around here and Hemingway famously made a fortune from long sentences, so who are they to judge? ;)
