Will call Hinshaw this morning and ask when they expect delivery of tri-color manual. Like all dealers , they said "early spring" then modified to "late spring"; last I checked they mentioned that by "end of May". Will call and verify latest greatest :) every day is a day closer though :)

My AT was supposed to be here June 11th - Tacoma dealer - he got 1 in and it was gone, but a week before mine was to be here I got another call from him saying - Sorry your bike wont be here till end of August.
Well I couldn't wait that long so I found a dealer in Georgia that has 2 sitting on the floor - I bought 1 and will be flying to Georgia this Thursday to pick it up and ride it home - oh yeah!

I received a call from Hinshaw about 3 weeks ago that they had a silver one and wondered if I would accept it - told them NO I'm not in a rush - I want a Tri-color manual , then another week passes by and he again calls to say that they had one on the floor that was a silver one (don't know if this was the same one) and I again said NO - I want a tri color manual. Apparently the dealers have no control of what they are receiving as stock and just go with what is delivered; good thing that there is a demand for the AT's or is there?????

Very strange here also in the northeast-- I have a $1000.00 deposit with NY Honda out in Queens NY and got two calls from dealers in upstate NY that have the red-man. sitting in the crate if I want-- one wants $500 more than the place I gave a deposit too-- Spoke with my guy and says I should get mine by the end of July but will give my deposit back if I want-- Going to wait and stick with NY Honda because those other guys play games and don't even want to try and get a deposit back from a dealer-- My rear end is still swollen from my last purchase though a dealer-- To those who have---ENJOY!!!!
