I've only been waiting since June 4 but I'm suspicious about how much longer it's gonna take, since he said the end of June. Also, good to here DH let us know how the new engine works out

I waited from September or October of 07 .And did not get my bike till Febuary of 08. So I don't know how long the wait will be but it will be worth it.

yea from what i was told, from my dealer anyway, that theres a "dealer meeting" on the 19-20th of july to set orders and all that stuff. so if you wanna get an 09 and get it as soon as it comes out go and lay down a deposit. it kinda sucks for me tho cuz i wanted a bike this year. and when they're set to come out is like september some time...aka ill have no time to ride cuz ill be out at college. hey fuck me right! i guess ill just have to wait till next spring

I talked to my dealer and here's the sitch.

Kawasaki is shipping out 80% of each dealers orders to them. After they have that done they will decide where to send what's left My dealer thinks he will get the rest of his order of 08's cause he only has two left. I hope so too, cause I'm first on the list.
Anyhoo, that's just the latest news I've heard.

I put my deposit down on 6/12 for a Blue one. My dealer was expecting 3 250rs by the end of June but just finally got a black one last week and a green one this past tuesday. So, mine should be here any day. Murphy's law, of course mine will be the last of the three to arrive! He offered my the green one that I guess was unspoken for but i'm not taking the Rider Course until June 22,23, 24 so I'm perfectly happy waiting it out a couple more weeks. He told me the bikes sometimes come in a few weeks late but assures me it will be here. If not, I guess I have no choice but to wait for an 09. That would give me more time to save some more $$$ tho. But I want my bike!!!

Two weeks, that's when they'll decide who gets what. He figures he'll get his last two that make up his 20%, but bigger dealers that have larger orders won't get all their bikes. Kawasaki really fucked us.

I'm paying full in cash, my dealer knows it because I've told him numerous times i'm paying in cash (i've saved alot lol) You think i'm screwed until the '09's? I actually wouldnt mind having an '09 but still i'd rather have my bike now.
