Wow.....is March what they are giving you for delivery date???  That does seem a bit excessive.
Be glad you'll only have to wait thru the winter months......and not the summer! 
This way you'll have plenty of time to ensure that they deliver you the RED version!   :002:

Why are you waiting until March? Please don't tell us it has anything to do with the new registration.

could've had one in December, but if i've got to wait that long then 2 more months for a 16 plate seems worth it.. plus the promised sh1tty weather means it'd only be sat in the garage teasing me....

You could have one now, at a discount, as there are plenty floating around the dealer network, and they've got targets to hit. Use the saving to pay for a private plate, and enjoy riding on the sunny days, and farkling & ogling on the shitty days. :821:

pretty sure i won't be able to ride it in December... but i decided to get mine earlier to help the dealer hit targets... oh or maybe it was the grands worth of saving and free service that persuaded me...   Merry Christmas!!
