Test ride on Saturday morning and then a decision will be made.

If your guys have trained their mechanics it should be soon. My guy trained his last week (towards the end of the week) and the bike shipped almost immediately.

I would send my dealer emails every week, mostly to make him laugh but also so he didn't forget I was itching to spend $18k with him. He said he liked getting the emails

Keeping my fingers crossed for you mate (at least until Saturday when I may need to uncross them to deal with the RBW throttle I hear so much about).

I think the body of the family rabbit in a box at the dealership door got my guy to rush things along.

Hey, desperate times, right

A good bike is worth the wait, for a new model release, the Explorers are arriving comparatively early in the riding season.

Such a nice alternative for those seeking a high powered big bore adv tourer, basically a "wash and wear" bike that isn't Japanese, not as frighteningly service complex as Ducati's MS1200, nor detuned to 05 GS1200 levels ala Yamaha's Tenere and for many, an extremely viable alternative to BMW's uber successful GS range, without perhaps worrying about trading in the moment the extended warranty expires.

For myself, one of the most enjoyable bike threads in a long time,
what with following the early reports, of new owners feedback !
