Superbill said: Did anybody point out that the FJR 1300 is an "off-the-shelf" bike in Europe?



>>>>



Yes I pointed this out and the real q is not what you said but rather why have the Europeans never been on the same program as USA buyers



According to Yamaha sales of the FJ have picked up 25% and still USA buyers are on the punitive wait delivery program



Its not whining at all to expect a dealer to have the bike in stock ....

I looked on eBay and found no FJR1300's for sale currently and exactly one guy who failed to sell his almost new bike in Arizona for $12k (full list price) in the recent auction history. Since you can't import a vehicle to CA without 7500 miles, that wouldn't really work either...



A quick call to five LA and Orange County Yamaha dealers yields zero in stock, new or used, but plenty of invitations to get on the newly extended waiting list.



Not that I want one, since I just bought a bike, but if I was in the market for a big sport tourer, I'd be seriously thinking about whether or not to get on that list...



Regards,

Ross

Golly, I didn't know that Saten was allowed to be the Devil's advocate.



Isn't that a conflict of interests?



Or, would it be a fool having himself as a lawyers.



The problem with being in marketing is, you start seeing people as a collection of psychological responses, rather than your fellow man.



I know...I've done it! And. most of the people that I know who do it, are alcoholics, children of alcoholics or someone who learned, at an early age, to manipulate people.



Probably, being in marketing, all you do is hand the ball to Ad-Shops where these people work. Lucky you...You won't have to shed your skin twice a year

I think the Hayden Boys will be running it on their Kawasakis.



I dun seen sum pikturs of ZX-6RRs with works Ohlins suspensions on them, so I assume they will be run in the 'Formula Extreme" class.
