They have two red ones on the floor. Sat on em. Turned the key on and looked at the gauge cluster... barely can't wait for the x!!!!. Atleast one of them is an abs model. Didnt look at the other to see if it was.

Which is which here in the pics?

Talking

So I went to my dealer today and sat on the r model and to my surprise my 6'6" frame fits it... Going to wait when it drys up and test ride it to see how it will be on the road... So far so good.

Just looked at the R model at the local dealer. it has a refreshingly roomy appearance and high quality look about it. Very nice
