    Yup. Picked mine up last Sat. Was meant to get it on monday but spent saturday at the dealership putting it together and getting the paperwork sorted and got lucky, everything worked out. Would post pics, but photobucket wont load. Photos on the 1990 thread I started a while ago.

    Am I the first to get a 2014? There must be others out there?

    I emailed Arrow on the West coast and got this response about their system.
    "Patrick,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    The weight difference between the silencers is just under a pound. The difference in the collector weights is around two pounds.<o:p></o:p>

    I'd get down there and stroke it, if I were you. At least the dealership will be warm and they'll have coffee......:rofl

    in Montreal canada there is a winter tire law that you can not drive a vehicle (Car, Motorcycle) unless you have winter only tires, law starts every year december 15th until march 15th
    pretty sad considering bike registration runs from 650$ to 1400 a year

    Rode mine home today, 28 degrees and no heated grips on it yet. Speedometer appears to be off. Not used to the ergonomics just yet. Power delivery in the street mode is almost to smooth, not complaining just different.
    I love it though, even got a little mud on her.:clap:D:D

    Once you select sport mode your life will change, you will become 10 yrs younger..

    On the preload side of things, I selected 1 rider and 1 bag, i found this setting to be very useful at keeping everyhting nice and firm and complaint in the corners. Thats the setting I also used on my K1300s..

    Picked up the 1190R yesterday. Ordered all the normal stuff, Radiator guard,Headlight guard, upper and lower chain guards, Heated grips, Tail extension,lights,Soft bags,Akrapovic exhaust.
    My question is on the Warranty. I declined the Service package, I will be doing all of the routine maintenance. and I bought the extended warranty, its not a factory warranty, and I made sure it was an actual extended warranty not an additional that would run with the actual 1 year Manufacturers warranty. So it says I have a 60 month mechanical warranty, all non wear parts are covered.
    Is this worth the 1200.00 dollars I paid.

    Hard to say if its worth it. It was not worth it to me yesterday when I picked up mine. To you it was, so you paid for it. I do not get extended warranties on my other vehicles either.....but I do turn wrenches on my equipment also so it has to be something bad for me to haul anything into a dealer.
