The X men do have to wait a long time, the best things in life are worth waiting for they say. I have heard that the x is looking like it's going to be the best seller of the three new cb models.

I'm still waiting for my tri-color CBR-R! 2 more weeks.
( Because my local dealer is small, they don't move much inventory. They are at the bottom of the list for new shipments. )

If my local dealer was a Powerhouse, I would have my bike already.

I like the red the best, but its not going be available in oz. I'm torn. The black looks a bit monochromatic, and i dont really like white bikes. I think i'll probably go black but with a custom tank wrap.

I 've got money down on the only red one coming to my area (as far as I know). I also felt like a change from black bikes, and thought being more visible can't hurt either.

that's a bummer there is no red for you! yea the black is nice......its hard to tell from photos though, maybe in the flesh the white is nice? you never know?

Donald, when you pick up your 'X' could you let me know whether the big 'X' graphic looks removeable? I'm not too keen on it and if it's got laquer over it it'll be a bugger to remove.

Cheers
