    I picked up my '09 Night rod Special (with ABS) yesterday (10/10/08) in Victoria. For you info it was built in August and complianced October. I ordered it in March, what a long wait that has been. Absolutly over the moon about the performance and handling of the bike. Put a set of TAB Performance mufflers on it and it sounds great, I'm just a bit nervous around the cops.AB

    Not a V ROD,but i paid my deposit on an FLSTN in very early October 2007; and got my bike at the end of April 2008.

    It seems ALL H--Ds that come to OZ take for ever.(I think they're towed by swimmers)

    Yeah, I ordered my Road King in August. Dealer still says it will ship Oct 15 Wed....I'm like you, I can't wait. I'm going nuts. Got the garage space all ready. Good thing I live in So. Cal. as I will still be able to ride for a while. I screwed u and told folks at work and I get asked every day. "did you get your bike yet????" Now I know how the wife felt when she got close to delivering.

    Of course you are.(being shafted, that is.)

    The delivery of my bike was originally January 2008;then late Feb.;then maybe the end of March,and finally 'sometime' in April.THEN i got that H-D had 'misplaced' 36 Australian orders and VIN numbers;and my bike was one of these.This was early April.And THEN i got told a bike order 'JUST' like mine had been cancelled and i could have that one.Yeah,right!Same 2 tone colour,same spec. wheels,same as mine in every aspect.Some dude orders a bike,waits months for it and then cancels.I must be some bucolic backwards boy;at least in their eyes.

    I've ALWAYS thought that motorcycle dealers and shops have about bugger-all respect or care for their clients.
    Go and buy a new car and see how you're treated.

    Great comment about new car dealers. I've been in new cars for almost 20 years and would get shot if I did some of the things that I have experienced from bike dealers (the ones I did not buy from). Having said that, I found the right dealer and had a great experience including a 1 1/2 hour delivery that was performed by the workshop foreman. Talk about informative! AB

    Just a thought as you wait, I know some HD dealers rent Night Rod Specials and HD dealers love loyal customers... see if they can throw in free rental time while you wait?
    Of course it may make you more crazy, but at least you can ride? Doesn't hurt to ask and be sure to mention you will wear the dealers T-shirt during your rental time.
