The order for my new Tenere will go in tomorrow. Rep still says June delivery. To those haters and those unwilling to fly the flag and doubters and negative Marks, I mean Nancy's, should maybe step to the back of the line and receive theirs sometime in 2021 as they have so negtively predicted

I get the feeling those remarks we aimed at me.

But Dan I like the FRONT of the line so much better. This is going to be such a fun month😉😉.
Hope your sense of humor is good. I truly hope we see them in June by rally time.🏍🏍🏍🏍🏍🏍
Oh and by the way I put my order in 2 years ago when the concept bike was shown, before anybody was even riding one.
Now back to the pessimism.
If mine does by some miracle come in I would be glad to let you sit on it. Supervised of course.

Hahahahahahaha

There is a wrinkle in this story now.

So Scott calls us yesterday and informs us that he just found out that we have to go onto a website and place confirmation that we want a bike. Chose the color, accessories and what ever. They will then assign a confirmation number that we then give to Scott so he can order the bike. This all takes place on Friday and noon ET. Seems like a convoluted system to get a bike but I've waited to long to let something as silly as this spoil fun. I just don't really understand the messed up process. Only thing I can think of is that there is a finite number coming in they wanna make sure they get to where they are wanted rather than have them sitting in a showroom somewhere where there is no demand. Not sure really, but that's what I'm telling myself to justify the the madness. Either that its just Yamaha's way of laughing at idiots like me while we jump through hoops just to get a machine.....

Ya Yamaha announced yesterday how we have to get in line to get a bike.
Doesnít matter what you have worked out with your dealer, you have to go on line and get a order number from Yamaha on Friday (hope Dan has fast internet) then give your number to the dealer to turn back into Yamaha.
I didnít think Yamaha could top the 3 year run up for this bike but they have.
Really rubbed me the wrong way Tuesday when my dealer called to tell me the process.  He couldn't believe what they did either.
So long story short Yamaha riled me up  and they can do something with there bike.
