They were "pre-orders" only. You had to pre order one to get it in '09 and unless you did you couldn't buy one till '10. Or at least that was the plan, tho some dealers ordered one for themselves. Not sure how they did that or why triumph allowed it. But it allowed me to get one because i didn't pre order. I just found one at a dealer and bought it ! Anyways, the preorder deal was that if you were one of the X number of limited pe\re orders you'd get one in mid '09. Otherwise you had to wait till the official release. As much as i wanted one i wasn't about to buy w/o seeing it up close and personal.
