You must be the guy ahead of me. When I put my deposit down at FM they said I was #2 in line.

Have you gotten a price on it yet?

Purchased up at Motobreck. Deal was negotiated when I put down my deposit. John and Mary were very reasonable and really nice people to deal with. Small and responsive operation. Will be picking it up a week from today.

So true. Proof that by limiting supply or creating the perception of a limited supply, you can convince many that the product is worth waiting and paying a premium for regardless of its actual "value."

Glad to hear the 690 is worth the wait. Thanks for the assurance.

glad you got your bike! Question -does the main odo show tenths? My trip odos do, not the main though. Perhaps a setting.

fwiw mine was 10100 otd. The other one I was calling on was going to be 98-9900 otd, but wasn't arriving until next month. Bird in hand.....

in Missouri you pay sales tax when you apply for the title. Where I live that will be about 5.3%.

NFW. Called my local dealer back to get their total and it is not as bad but still insane; $11,600 out the door (this includes the state tax, license and reg fees - still too much.....).

Are all you guys being told that "Destination" is $795?
Destination/freight charges are total bogus add ons. The dealer I bought 2 KTM's from only charged $55 for set up, not to mention I got my 450 EXC for $1000 BELOW MSRP and my 690 for $750 below MSRP.
