Looks like the squids have to wait even longer to get the latest and greatest that's at least 0.0001% faster! They'll just have continue the cruise their older mounts down the boulevards on Saturday nights, chicken strips proudly displayed.

OK, I'll bite. What is a chicken strip? Is that where the squidly among us ride around with tires that are about bald down the middle from burnouts but the edges are like new?

Yes.

And of course the dealers will mark them up accordingly. Where I used to work the sales manager calculated the "freight and setup" based upon how popular the bike was. In this instance, it would definitely be $1269.



Later, it would drop to $769 and then to $369 as the inventory increased and demand slowed down.

It's Karma
 
Snub Johnny B and the MOrons and you get production delays.



Hopefully the other manufacturers learn from Honda's blunder.

I like chicken strips, especially from Longhorn.

This could possibly hurt sales of the new CBR600RR simply because the competition is already available. I have no doubt that the new CBR is a great bike, but I've already seen the new ZX-6R, and it's quite lovely in the metal. Admittedly I wasn't prepared for how small it is, but at least I could go to the local Kaw dealer and buy one today if I had room in my wallet for an extra motorcycle...


Remeber, it's always easier to do things the hard way. Chango

Damn you Joe_Momma How could you mention the holy grail of chicken eating, in a forum that is also read by those of us in CA, where there isn't a Longhorn to be found.



When I moved to CA from Jacksonville, FL I immediately went into Longhorn withdrawal. I still twitch, when someone mentions Longhorn Chicken Fingers.

Ain't too bad a delay...
 
I know some Honda riders that have been waiting from 98 to 2002 for the red 4 strokes that would put the YZ400F to shame. At the time the rumors said that it would be a early release 99...

I'm also on the lookout for something of a CRF250, now it's said to be a early released 2004.

My father also had to wait for his 2003 ST1300. Crates were on hold for a couple of months, his dealer giving all kind of excuses for the delay (like: they have to get different warning labels on the bike!?!).



Is it a trend with Honda?



Ciao!
