have you ordered a GSW this month / week / today ?

greetings - my dealer tells me all '14 are spoken for, and also that all '14 bikes have been made and the factory is not making any more ....

i don't believe that...(actually i don't want to believe that)...so has anyone put in an order recently, and if so, whats the expected arrival date ?

used search, but got sidetracked by so much other relevant stuff

cheers !

I believe some dealers here on the Right coast have 2014's on the showroom floor for sale.
That's how I got mine 3 weeks ago.

Doesn't sound true. They made all the 14 models in two months? Call a different dealer.

I drove to Max's in NH and left with a '14. I'm pretty sure they have more and are getting more.

Are you sure they weren't referring to the '13 models? There will be '14s for sale for the next 10 months or more

The factory staggers its build schedule and with the new RT and new R90T coming out, my guess is the production lines have shifted to these models so perhaps dealer is referring to everything built is already spoken for by other dealers which could be the case. But certainly they are not done with building '14s for the entire model year, maybe just for this calendar year. But bottom line is your dealer wants you to buy something on his floor today.

I agree with Kip.....hogwash.... if anything, 2014s are just arriving here on the left coast.

I ordered one on Friday, and was told late December, early January. I insisted on a fresh order, not a factory stock bike, as I want all the latest updates. I should have a better idea on delivery in a week or two, I guess.

Same here. Been lurking on the Gspot threads for a while. I still need to do one more test ride of the current GSA. Tested the KTM 1190 yesterday so I got that out of my system.

Would have sealed the deal if BMW had the GSA at the Atlanta show. But no, they sent it to California for a photo shoot. Oh well, soon, perhaps.

Steering damper, software, pink shocks with yellow stripes, and any other bugs to iron out!
