Called in to my dealer again last night. Still no news from BM other than maybe end of Feb early March, I.e. just in time for the end of summer!

Not for all Canadians, we haven't seen snow yet and it was 19C (66F) here in Windsor today -- Still, I get your point, which is why I picked a March delivery for my Comp. By the end of the week, it's gonna start getting cooler.....

I will just live through all you warm weather peeps until the spring.

If I had a warm garage for her, I would bring her home and make vroom vroom sounds. But I guess I can use this time to read the riders manual and look at my slick mode key.
Not really FBTO, given that aussie roads max post limit is just 110km/h(65Mph), u will be bored to death lol unless u take it to track to enjoy it. I still miss my old days back in houston.....100mph is what it is supposed to be meant for all motor vehicle lol

Btw, good decision on changing ur mind again picking her up, get some personal time with her ASAP

Lol, speed limit in all of Canada is 100 km/h, yet the racing speed is 150. So most highways are flowing at 130-140

If you get caught 50 over, instant impound and suspension and up to a $10000 fine!!

I know what you mean... I was only able to get 2000km on my 2012 Motorsport before the season was over. (picked up August 3rd)

all the HP Carbon is in bubble wrap and boxes, along with a TechBike Cat cover...

damn this weather... cant even justify buying a snowmobile, the snow never sticks around long enough.
