Hope they show up in Montreal soon. I'd like to go see one before getting back on the waiting list....can't complain too much as the delivery delay was what made me go nuts enough to buy a Ural!

They were supposed to show out here on the Island. None did. The dealers' call to headquarters has him really scratching his head. None this month and aparently they are are on a boat somewhere out in the deep blue. Talking about Oct. or Nov. now. Doh!!

Last news I heard was that some were supposed to show up this week. But mine will be showing up a couple of weeks later because it's a non-ABS bike, and those were run a week or so later than the ABS bikes. Something about production line setup.

My dealer has been up front with me, since December. But now, I think they're feeding me a pile of bull.

Zaner, I was told the same thing about mine (non-ABS) and the way the production was run. From what I've read on the other forums that I stalk hourly the bikes that have been delivered are ABS equiped.

Anyway, I was told Sept, then I was told late Oct, so I'm not expecting to see one this far east till November.

Pissed written statement 'bout the delivery date

"I've been told" is the most hated expression...

I'm gonna ask for the written statement about the delivery date next time. let them deal with penalties

So, they got one of the ten they let loose? And, of course it was spoken for?

F800 delivery

I'm probably the only butt hole here who only wants his bike to get here next year.
Then I should have the pesos....

F800 delivery

This last weekend was the GS challenge just outside Montreal. I heard someone showed up on an F800GS from Toronto and that the bike took a few spills and is no longer pristine to say the least. Must be some pics floating around somewhere or its just more BS>

Just picked it up, the dealer said I was the first person in Toronto to get one. He did say all the ones they received had the lowered seat, so I have to go back when they get the normal ones.
