FYI, I just picked mine up today.  :046:
Yours shouldn't be far behind.  Apparently mine was on the truck when I called on the 9th, but the dealer didn't know exactly where the truck was.

I'm hoping everyone's wait is over soon!   :821:

CONGRATS  :821: Looks like you will be the first North American to get your hands on the 2019

Weird that it's at Edmonton. Are motorcycles air-shipped in instead of being sea-shipped ??

Ah, the wonderful world of shipping. I think this is how it works. The bikes arrive in Vancouver on a container ship, container is then put on a train and sent to Edmonton. Containers are then sorted at warehouse and sent via truck or rail to various regions in Canada. Sounds a little crazy however i understand that its more cost efficient to do everything from a central location. Edmonton would be western Canada terminal, i suspect there would be one in eastern Canada as well.
Cheers

Got it. Well no more customs check and 1200km from warehouse to your location. Crossing my fingers for you.

To Stir The Pot. I found an older video on when the CB500X arrived in AMERICA.

Looks like sometime in March. Video was posted April 5th at a Chilean Dealer prepped and ready for sale!


In a recent video, a motorcycle rental company (also in Chile) have the 2019s for rent

Yup in a warehouse 1200 km away. I offered to go there and ride it back but apparently that's not possible Lol !!  :152: Only takes a couple of days by transport truck so not so bad. Been a long wait though, ordered it in January

EDIT: WOW, I can't believe I missed your post.
SUPER CONGRATS  :821:  for being the 1st known North American to get the 2019 CB500X!!!
Post pictures ASAP. Show our European fellow riders that we also have great backgrounds for the CB500X

That would have been great trip... and you would have taken care of the break in period

Funny I missed the post right above your 1st post by "Flash88"
Looks like moto #1 and #2 went to the East & West Coasts of Canada
