Do any US/CDN dealers have 08s yet?

Has anyone in NA actually seen an 08 Berg yet?

I am supposed to be getting 3 08s (2 FE450s, 1 FE550) sent to me for the Toronto Bike Show either Friday or Monday. I am curious to see what they look like for real, not just pics.

Not answering for fry, but word on the street has it that the WEC organizers were kind of hacked that the USA top riders (as dictated by their team managers) essentially boycotted (the team bosses don't want to send their top riders that are chasing USA championship plates risking getting injured or simply getting shelac'd by the euros) the WEC rounds. I think that having quite a few WEC regular teams / riders not come to the NA rounds, complaining of high costs associated with travelling off the european contenental mass also contributed.

RE: Re: RE: Do any US/CDN dealers have 08s yet?

You hit the nail on the head on a couple accounts TM. Lack of participation by riders in North America is one aspect. That being said, the western venues would have had significantly more entrants, both Canadian and US rounds. And there has the lack of support of some of the top US riders, ( hey we only have a few and they were there) ie Destry Abbott/Kaw etc. The biggest reason for no 08 events is that lack of funding in a few Euro factory teams, such as TM, the Czech and Slovakian teams, .... They had asked for a reprieve from the North American rounds in order to build funds to participate in year or two. Australia and Mexico would also like to join the schedule, and we'd like to return. As well the FIM wants the WEC to be a World Championships, and not a large labelled Euro series. Hopefully Pineman, you can ride that route in a year or two and have WEC arrows on it. fingerscrossed.

Like the BOSS man, we too received our invoice last week for our shipment...should arrive tomorrow (12-4) or around there. 4 450s and a 550..boy corporate holiday schedules suck for small business...freight delays, corporate people on vaca, etc....cant wait until the new year when everyone can get back on track.

No 08 SMs are coming to NA. Apparently there are some 07s left from BMG that are discounted from KTM.
