Saw my very first SFV today other than mine. A Red (PINK) and white one today.:rolleyes:

The Lassie had picked it up last Thursday and was loving it.

Re: Saw one to day.

Our local dealer has one in black, not too bad, I'd like to take it for a test ride.

I was down in Cali over the weekend and saw a blue and white, like yours in a dealership in Merced. It looks really nice in person. Hope all is well.

Have any of you not seen one on the road yet. I must be the only one. OK I've only seen one person how has the bike. I Suppose it's understandable, The bike has only been out five or six weeks.

I have not see one on the road...the black is a bit of a sleeper from a distance more so than the blue and white. Maybe the US east coasters would have more luck? Glad I didn't have to get mine from Cali either, talking to the sales guy CA state emissions controls actually lower the HP on a lot of bikes including the Gladius. I had no idea about that until our conversation.

I have to say the blue white combo is much more stunning in person, I would have liked to have seen it in motion tho.

Wow is that bad over there. I'm glad i don't live in California.

Over here in the UK I would say the Blue & white is the best combo, But i wish the bike had a black frame and then i could get my brother in law to paint the body work.

Re: Saw one to day.

I saw my second ever Gladie to day up Westgate Rd. It's our local bike meet.
A brand spanking new Blue/White one. A young bloke was riding it. His miss's had a GS500. They where fighting over the keys to the Gladie.;D

She lost.

Mine is definitely the only one between St. Louis and Chicago. I called all the dealerships in my area and none of them had any. I had to order mine 6 months in advance! A lot of people mistaken it for a BMW until they get close and see the S on the tank.

Ugh the last thing I want to be confused with is a ugly arse bmw
I can see a little resemblance...



I think BMW motorcycles are beautiful...I would never want to own one, per say, but I definitely think they're amazingly designed machines.

Yep - just waiting for a used one :)
Can you share any ideas:rolleyes: Are would that be telling. I know what I'm going to do. Sort out the bloody front end. Riding home from work tonight and the front end seemed detached from the rest of the bike.

I'm going to look in to changing the springs and oil.
