Well crap! I see you reside just outside of St. Louis.
Congratulations again, though!

Have you been able to ride it yet? Its been so damned cold and wet around here I've put only 10 miles on mine.
So where in Missouri do you live?
Congratulations!!!!!!
No, I only rode it about 20 miles. It was 38 degrees and sleet. Got home and it started to snow..... and ended up with a foot.

I'm west of St. Louis on I-44 at mile marker 251 - which is about equal distance to Union, Washington, and Pacific. About 12 miles west of Six Flags.

And free coffee.

Hey kballowe. I'll be over in about 30 minutes. 1 sugar 1 cream please, lol. What prompted you to go to Russelville to pick that beauty up? I have one on order from Mungenast in St. Louis but for some reason they don't think they are gonna see one anytime soon???? That is a great deal on your bike. I was quoted several hundred over msrp and looked to go to Tenn. for one. When Mungenast called back they gave me a much better deal but still not as sweet as yours. Well, when it does come in we will definitely have to meet up. I live in Kirkwood and head out to Pacific to catch FF, F and some of the other great roads out that way about 75% of the time I ride. With this bigger more comfortable bike than my cb250 I will be heading alot further southwest into the Ozark mountains this summer. Nice job! Beautiful bike!

There was a forum I used to belong to, centered to the Kawasaki ZR-7, and there was a member there that rode his CB250 all over the country. At last report, he had close to 75K miles on that bike. He would post pics of it all loaded down with tent, gear, etc. Just blew me away that he COULD do that many miles on a 250.

I had been looking around the local area and nobody had one. Some were on order, but $500 deposit and MSRP + freight/setup did not sound like something I wanted to do.

Honda of Russellville had received five of them and (I believe) four sold immediately. I got the last one of that shipment. And $9,051 out the door was at least $1,000 cheaper than anyone around here.

Yep, that's a helluva deal no matter how you look at it. Oh, and thanks for posting your VIN (as I did also a few pages back -- #906). Enjoy the new bike, it's gorgeous. I think a few more pictures are in order for us poor bastards who haven't been able to pick our bikes up yet.

The bike almost looks like a resto-mod. I think they did a very nice job getting the bike executed.....it's pretty much exactly what it's supposed to be.

Well...us guys with the ABS bikes will have to wait.

It's ok, though. I can't ride it until May.

Well Scoobynut, I'm about to roll the girl out to the driveway and use a REAL camera to shoot some better pics than I was able to last time.

I'm about as unnatural at shooting pics as I am having my pic taken.
But, this bike makes it easy!
