My dealer has 2 on the floor - a red one and a silver one. Heís promised I can take the first test ride (I was Sales Manager there for a few years). Waiting on a call later today. Very nice to sit on. Feels light but the seat seems a bit hard, sort of like the Thruxton seat hard.

Iím located in Sydney Australia , I pre ordered the red / black one and payed a deposit as the store was only receiving one this month and I think maybe one more next month .
Iíve been riding cruisers so this bike is completely different to my previous style and riding position , in particular I lean a little forward with the bars as they are quite low like the Thruxton so I may look at riser options down the track

Haha, you are like me but a few months in the future. How are you finding the transition from the laid back to the sporty. Iíve sat on it and I rather liked the more engaged position but not all the way committed like the thruxton. Are you still feeling it in your wrists though?

How did we get it here before the UK? Anyone know when the Beast (Scrambler) is coming here?
