I don't believe that there are any current US sellers. However, the website I got this from indicated that it was delivered quickly into the US.

Thanks,
I have the wire for my heated gloves wrapped up there until the panel mount come from Gerbing. I had a J&M Integratr that was wired to my helmet and I 3M taped a Ram Ball on the bottom and mounted it to my handlebars with a Ram Mount. I got the power adapter base for the Integratr and plug it into my lighter adapter and it plugs into my helmet. I can plug my ipod, my phone, my pillion rider has a headset and we can intercom.

It comes with an AM/FM radio built in. It looks messy right now, but when it warms up I will clean it up.

Sat on one. Don't want an "automatic" transmission on a motorcycle. Do want ABS. Can't get the "standard" transmission with ABS. I'm very happy you all enjoy your new bikes. For me however, this Honda (like most Hondas) holds all the appeal of a glass of warm milk after a ride through Death Valley on a hot day. No thanks.

I just ordered the Puig from my local dealer. He said that it is backordered through WPS but should be here around the 21st of January. I will report back when I actually get it. Price was 135ish after tax fyi.

Is there any special hardware required since the shield is substantially larger than stock?

my bike is manuel and full abs why honda treat America like 3. world country.shame on them.
This bike is wonderful but i am still missing my harley sportster,it was rough bike but it feel like a bike behaves like a bike.
this honda is not a bike,its a machine that never stops or give you smile while riding it.But harley and triumphs are different i think in Milwaukee they put souls in these bikes.

Yet you chose to name yourself after it. That's interesting.

I smile on mine all the time, but I have scandalously low standards.

(Mine is also manual and ABS....in red. It was like buying a burger at Wendy's; they asked me how I wanted it and sold me exactly what I asked for).

How did you do that? And anyone know the new colors for 2013? I still ain't going to buy a silver one.

Well just signed all the paperwork at the dealer for mine!
I was looking into soft luggage for it and like the look of these.

We just got to riding weather with clean streets the last weekend.

Here is mine Sunday





Nice setup...what handguards do you have on there ?

Saw one of these in the parking lot at work and it belongs to a new guy who also rides the Piaggio MP3 I've seen parked there. He claims to like odd bikes and has commented favorably my Pacific Coast, so it must be true.
