Isn't the evap canister, hoses, etc, part of the system which improves the quality of the emissions?

Dealer just called, they are rolling it off the truck now and I'll be picking it up tomorrow!
(I should note that the dealer is 200 hundred miles away, but as I go to that town once a month on business anyway, and I am going there tomorrow, the timing is perfect).
I'll post my impressions later.
Pretty excited!

I won't sleep till I read your writeup!!!!! If I get sick from staying up for days, it'll be your fault. But, seriously, I'm subscribed and am very interested in your comments on the SR.

Wow, ok I'll certainly give my impressions, but I am biased, I've always loved the SR. I rode an SR500 everyday for two years when I was in Japan (92-94), and since this bike has been continuously in production since 78 I can't imagine it will be much different. The MAIN thing I want to comment on is whether the FI has made the starting easier...and of course the 400 is a bit higher revving than the 500...I am sure the fit and finish will be excellent and it'll run just fine.
But, certainly...
Is mine the "first " one?

Cool

I now live on the big island of Hawaii 12 miles south of Hilo. I've seen an immaculate looking XT500 riding around Hilo a few times. Nice looking, and sounding old dual sport thumper. Sounds like you may be the first SR400 buyer in the US. There are reviews and youtubes from other countries. I wa kidding you about your written thoughts on the new SR. But, I'm one of the few that would consider buying a kick only new street thumper. I've owned my share of dual sport thumpers over many years.

If they are on the West coast, I suppose the East Coast will be a few weeks behind.

I wonder how they distribute the bikes, by train?

i would not be surprised. Train is much cheaper vs truck if you don't need to adhere to a schedule.
