    It has arrived ....

    Just got word from Honda East Toledo{Maumee, Ohio} that the 2014 T~Dub that I ordered has arrived....not bad, the order was put in with Yamaha 2 weeks ago today....probably will take Thursday and head the 100 miles north up I-75 to bring it home....story, photos, and first thoughts coming up later in the week....Looks like it will be in the upper 50s to low 60s Thursday and Friday....so I may get it out real soon after bringing it home.

    Exciting news, congratulations. Especially nice is that weather may let you ride soon rather than just sitting in your garage making "vrooom" noises.It sounds like your Yamaha dealer is treating you well. Looking forward to seeing post of your happy face astride new Hoot Scoot.

    You are fortunate that your dealer was willing to order--TWs come in pairs and don't sell very well to walk-ins, who want the latest and greatest. Face it, those of us who cherish TWs are an odd bunch.

    Be Decisive! Right or Wrong just make a decision. ​ The road of life is paved with flat squirrels that couldn't make a decision.

    Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    They were a great dealer to work with. I ordered my 2004 drz from them in late 03. They shipped it to BWI airport here in MD still in the crate. Best price. No haggling. Maybe I will order my next Tw from them. Because you have to have more than one. Right!!!

    No, I am the only one of me. Sometimes I think even that is one too many.

    Good dealers are hard to find. When I find a good dealer, I shop on line and print off what I find, then take everyone else's deals to the dealer and let them try to meet or beat. I think a good dealer appreciates the opportunity to compete straight up. I've even had a couple dealers tell me where even better deals than I found or they can provide are available. A dealer who becomes temperamental because I won't blindly pay inflated prices gets no business from me.

    Yep, I shopped around, within 200 miles in Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan...these guys {guy named Tad} came through for less than some were willing to come down on left over 2013s and tossed in the rear rack with no labor cost, and a bottom line that I had to grab....and even at 2 hours up the Interstate, if I need warrently work, it's only a toss in the back of the Pick-Up, and that I can live with.
