    Can you tell me WHY it’s still gonna be 2 weeks before you can ride her??
    My dealership had mine assembled, prepped & tested ready for delivery in 48hrs!
    Whats up with that?
    I bet they had to shoo you away to keep you from petting her!

    Yeah, that would be fun...lol. Still convincing my better half SHE really wants to go in May...

    I know that I want to! I guess it all depends quite frankly if I can get the break in out of the way, and first service. If it all comes together, I'll let you know.

    I can't remember right now, the great eating place's name in North Myrtle Beach...but I'm going to do a search. It is near that huge open Mall with the man made lake...and...get this...they have T-bone steak on the buffet. They cut the steaks into 1/4 inch (I'm not kidding...lol) thick steaks...and I always pi** them off, by stacking six of them on top of each other...and being sure to walk past the check-in counter...on the way back to my table....drives them NUTS! LOL! Shrimp, Crab, King Crab Legs, T-Bone steak....all for $24.00...can't beat that with a stick! Lots of fun times ahead for Charlotte and us...lots of fun times, Chief!

    I guess so, Randy, and thanks...but having to wait, six, going onto seven months?!?!?!?!? That was nuts, Randy..... Simply, nuts!

    Am I a Happy Camper today? Youbetcha. Oh..and don't tell Chief...that I actually DID reach out and touch the fairing...just to see that it was really there, LOL. I didn't pet it though...BUT WANTED TO!
    Seriously...the bike is drop dead gorgeous, in the flesh...even needing yet, to be put together. What a beaut!
    Honestly, I'm not missing my Wing....not with this cast in the headlights....

    Does it come with a tag, "Some assembly required."?

    Getting close now, can almost smell the premium gas already.

    There are 10 kinds of people that understand binary, those that do, and those that don't.
    Sometimes the thoughts in my head get bored and go for a stroll out through my mouth (or fingers). This is never a good thing.

    AHA!! I KNEW you wanted to PET IT!! I KNOW you dude!
    its been a long wait for you, but I GUARANTEE that once you throw a leg, start her up and hear that sweet rumble, roll on the throttle and take off down the road all the wait will disappear in your rear view mirrors!!
    Ill be listening for the SONIC BOOM! Lol!

    Does it really NEED a tag? Isn’t that kinda self evident?

    When I was there, the Sales Manager, told me that they worked around 8 hours to complete the other Grey that was purchased. Flyinfool...the dealer is NOT HAPPY, for they are not getting any more for this season. For '19, they were told, the flow will start again. Frankly, I 'd be wanting some kind of dealer compensation...c'mon..up here in Ontario, they would go like hot cakes...IF the dealers had more to sell than the one, or two if they were lucky...they got. There was one dealer that I asked if he was going to have a Demo Day..and he said it is planned. I then asked if Yamaha was going to have a T.C. there. He said that they have not committed to that...but all others would be there, FJR's...etc. I surmise that Yamaha doesn't want someone riding it...liking it...wanting it...and there is no bike in the warehouse to furnish the dealer. I think that for now, they wish to avoid that, up here, in Ontario. Probably for the rest of the Canadian Provinces, no doubt!

    I know right from Yamaha, that the red you see here, still in the shipping crate, is one of four that just came off the ship in Vancouver..and obviously were sent out to the other three purchasers as well. So...at least three other's doing their Happy Dance over the next few days!

    ...and if not a true Sonic Boom....I can absolutely tell ya...there will be a five minute long; "Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw!, rolling down the Ontario 401 westbound. Somebody will swear, there will be probably bluegrass banjo music soon to start up....! Chief...I've waited a long time...50 years..to have everything I could ask for...on one frame...and the Yamaha 2018 Star Venture Trans Continental is that bike! This is a true Bucket List Bike...I always wanted to ride and own a large bore, air/oil cooled, traditional V-Twin. I now get that chance, and its maiden run, will be up and over the Blue Ridge Mountains, if I can swing it.

    Chief, she is already quite sick to death hearing about it. She was praying to the Good Lord, to PLEASE, deliver his bike to the dealer...she needed a break! LOL. Good soul, she...

    Congratulations, the day is almost here for you. Exciting seeing the pictures of your baby still in its protective womb. I saw mine like that also. I wasn't smart enough to take a picture though.
    Happy riding next week.
