I heard much of the same from my dealer today but he has a new GS Adventurer in the box at the shop. It is not sold yet and will not be held for display. I am also dealing with the fact my neighbor, one of my best friends, and riding buddy will be picking up his new FJR! FJR beats GT in race to US! Bummer! He will have a lot of fun rubbing it in as we both sold our bikes recently to make way for the new ones. Maybe he will let me ride it. After all I taught him how to ride. I'll have my payback when the cold comes back and he parks his. I'll ride in it all except ice and deep snow. Alabama sees little of both.
