    Any link to info on this, or just word of mouth?

    Got mine

    Just rode in from the dealer on my C650 GT. I believe it is the first one to be delivered in Canada. Rode about 55 km home now headed out for dinner on it. Had the heated seat and heated grips on as it is about 50 degrees out (8 celsius)
    Got the platinum bronze

    Fun wow

    No poll or scooter forum so far, or did I miss it?

    I've been anticipating this as well, so far nothing.
    Bikes should start to be arriving at the dealers later this month, I've told my closest dealer I am definitely interested.
    As far as a forum, they seem to be dragging their feet on it. But then again I don't know how much interest there is right now, especially since they are still not out, except for the one guy in Canada who has posted here (43362 Jeff).
    Not feeling too bad as the more highly anticipated water-cooled twin doesn't have a forum yet, either.

    Both new areas are on the list...they will be up by the time most are available.

    Trust that folks are working on this. Most of the moderators have little to do with actual website build. feetdraggers on bikes...maybe, here...kinda harsh

    There are currently threads like this one to chat up the new offerings.

    Scootin

    In Canada about 20 arrived at the warehouse and all had been sold before they got there. Most of them in the Toronto area. How many are Scootin around other than mine I do not know. Every person says to me that's a scooter, why it is the size of a motorcycle. What can I say.

    Didn't mean for it to come off sounding like that.

    Riding today

    Was out riding my scooter today. It is to bad we do not have a lot of twisties around here. About 2 miles from here we have a short set around here and I have ridden a number of times (almost every time I go out). The scooter will lean over far enough that it will use every bit of rubber. If the bike had more rubber it would use it. This scooter handles well. After being off a bike for about 12 years this ride leaves me with total confidence and no worries.

    Thanks for the update Jeff! Have fun, ol' man winter not too far off.
    Have not heard a peep from my dealer yet, will wait to call or email next week, that will definitely be late October!
    If they don't arrive soon I probably will need to wait til spring. Once my bike is in storage it's pretty hard to get it out til spring.
