Your Bike on the Showroom Floor

Show me some shots of your bike the day you picked it up. New in the showroom. Not a bike you wish you had, but one you signed the papers on. The year doesn't matter, as long as it's yours.

April 2012: First one I saw in person. Texted this crappy cell phone pic to my wife. Rode the bike home the following day. Currently for sale in Flea Market, btw. ;)


March 2015: Haven't seen it in person yet - dealer sent me this crappy cell phone pic. Picking it up next weekend:

Kinda beastish- at least the way I originally used it and sometimes still do



I still have the SM and have ~50,000 miles on it.

And though that SE is not mine, a friend bought it after seeing this picture



I bought an SE a year later- still have it, and have ~38,000 miles on it.

Bwahahaha! Mine, all mine!

One funny little thing I remember that day was the salesman placing a "SOLD" sticker on the seat to keep others off the bike while I came back the next day to pick it up.

Cool2

Flew down to SF to close the deal, then had the bike delivered to my home in Oregon

I would have ridden it home, but thanks to California's greedy tax laws, that ride would have cost over $1000.

Yeah, I had the BMW for 7 months. Wasn't the bike's fault - the problem was BMW's legendary customer service.

Same here, hence the Yamaha.

Waiting for me to pick up. Dealer said, "I figured you enduro guys wouldn't mind a new bike sitting in the rain.." Cleanest it'll ever be

Mine never hit the salesfloor. It went from a crate in service in the morning to the front of the building that afternoon... which is where I fell in love.
