people are riding motorcycles here. And I'm waiting for news.

Anyone see a 2019 in North America in the flesh yet?

Nooo... but in news from Australia, my dealer has told me that a 30-bike shipment is imminent. He is pretty confident that he can nab one for me between 1 and 4 April. Apparently there is heaps of demand, so if you do want one in America (and are prepared to buy without a test ride, as I am) you might want to make a downpayment with your dealer, and ask them to use that to press Honda for one of what will be a limited number of bikes.

BTW I feel your pain - I've been without my bike for a few weeks now, and it's driving me batty!

 I ordered mine back in January and was told I would get one of a "very limited" allotment for Canada.

I'm guessing similar numbers to what AUS is getting, or even fewer!!!


I was told mid May but I have been hoping they would show up sooner.... Oh well, I'll learn some patience.

Just 350cc, just 450cc, just... :008:

I have plenty of days when I miss my little air cooled 250cc Honda Tornado. 23hp, 6 speed and fired up every time. I loved that machine, from what I remember.

But, getting onto the 650 VStrom after having ridden my 300cc Benelli for a year, having big torque and thrust was oh so nice. I certainly miss that too.
I know I, know I said just a little more to many times in the past years- now as old age kicks in things are different no more 500+lbs bikes don't need 100HP and don't need to go over 80mph -I just need a little more room on a bike AKA another 500X
It's not a big motorcycle just a groovy little motorbike

Sorry about accusing you of being American - no insult intended to you or them!  :002: :138:

I've just got my Triumph Sprint back on the road after replacing the stator, and today I started riding it around before my new X arrives (the last one had a pesky problem with a cracked frame).

Anyway, it is fun to open it up, but in all other respects the X is more interesting. The torque on the bigger bike is okay, but it's lazy - there's not the same need to change gears. Also, the weight is horrid. It's a pig to back up a slight incline.

For me at least, the X is the perfectly-sized machine. It will cruise at highway speeds, is extremely nimble, is fun to ride because of having to make use of the gears, and is easy to push around.

I'll get rid of the Sprint in spring, and the only reason that I can think of for me to buy another larger bike (it would be in the upright 'adventure' style, as the sports tour configuration kills my back after 3-4 hours of riding) is for touring with a passenger.

For me the old adage applies: "It's better to ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow"... or something like that.  :008:

I've found the same. Also that when I have a fast bike I ride faster, which is not always a good thing.

My bike arrived today! The dealer is trying to harvest add-ons from my 2014 over the next week, and I'll probably take possession on Monday 8 April. It's not registered yet, so I can't ride it, but ergonomically it seems very familiar.
