Am I the only one still waiting???

Recommended Posts

My impatience is turning to full blown anger! I put $100 down on the "first" '05 450, at my dealer, back in July. I am glad to see others on here are getting their's and I am happy for you. But, it seems like all the others that were to get one from the first shipment, have already got them. Not me. My salesman just says "we were told the release date is Sept 27", and they have no idea when or if it is coming. And to add fuel to the fire, I called the 3 closest other dealers in the area, and ALL of them said they already have received and sold some!!! What gives? I am not necessarily saying that my dealer is pulling a fast one, I just don't know why they can't give a straight answer. The other dealers looked "online with Honda" and were able to tell me when their bikes were shipped and would arrive. I wonder why my dealer is unable to do that. I am really losing my patience. Anyone with any comments? :cry:

I'm in Central Calif. and I'm still waiting. The dealer got one this last weekend, so that makes about 30 more of us still waiting on the list.

I was told the next shipment is today, Oct. 1st. About 18 will arrive.

A shipment did come in today, and one is mine. But, they will not give it to me in the crate (I tried and tried, begged even since I'll be taking it apart anyway).

They didn't give me a date when it'll be put together, but their service dept. is open weekends so there is hope for the weekend.

I stopped at my dealer Wednesday and there was a 05 CRF450 in the crate in the parking lot. I find my salesman and he says that one is sold and mine is a day or two behind it. So I spend the next two days cleaning my 04 for trade in. I call my salesman today and he now tells me Oct.14th.

So I guess it's Ride,Clean,Repeat for a couple more weeks.

I took delivery of mine today (Sat., Oct. 2)

They received 20....6 of them went straight to Honda R&D I am told (dunno why, it's Fresno!). Mine was first assembled today and waiting when I arrived.
