Thanks for the warm welcome. Called the dealer today and he said the bike may possibly be at his dealership by Monday! *fingers crossed*

Congratulations on the new bike. I too just got mine last Tuesday, rode it twice since and have 120miles on it now.

I also got the black but no ABS.

I love it. Not my first bike. Used to ride dirt bikes when I was much younger. Had one of the oldest Ninjas during the late 80's and had a cruiser before deciding to go smaller and nimbler as I don't go on long rides anymore.

This is mainly for the fun of riding two wheels whenever I have the chance.

I'm really happy with it so far.:D

Waiting for phone to ring with update from dealer...

Update: Dealer called and said the bike won't get to the dealership until Wednesday. Needs to be prepped after it arrives, so it may not get delivered to me until Thursday...what a bummer! :(

I got mine through Honda Marysville Powersports. They had 4 of them in stock, two on the showroom floor and I think two in the warehouse. Mine happens to be one of the two still sitting in the crate at the warehouse. :( I haven't seen any cbr250's around here yet.

How was your experience at John Hinderer? What color did you get?

They were great. i was looking for a month or so and had a deposit dropped on one at ASK powersports in grovecity and they took too long so i got my money back and the same day called John Hinderer and they said there were two on the floor, so i imediatley drove out and bought a black non abs floor model. They were very nice, professional, delivered the bike right after i bought it. no charge. they buckled the bike down in a covered trailer and followed me home from the dealership 50 minutes from my house! they were awesome to deal with. I love the bike.. it is the first street bike ive done alot of riding on. its lots of fun to ride and pretty much being a beginner, it was the perfect bike for me. I know youve gotta be chomping at the bit to get out and ride..

Did you work with Sandra down at ASK? I checked them out as well and they actually had a black ABS model, which surprised me so late in the season. She never gives you a direct answer when you ask her a question...it's almost like you're invisible and she's talking to herself. When I first called, I asked her how much they were asking for the ABS model they had in stock - she pauses then says, "yeah these bikes are great, with the fuel injection...blah blah blah". Even though they are closer to me, I decided to go back to Honda Marysville Motorsports...the guys there were straight up honest with no BS.

I want my bike!!

Funny you mention Saundra or sandy as they called her there, but yes i did and had no joy a their dealership as mentioned..they kept saying yea thats a great bike! are you sure you dont wanna try out a ninja or this or that? even after i had a 300$ deposit down on a cbr250 for a month! they gave me the same line of crap until i just had enough and pulled my deposit.Good desicion going else where with your buisness. The Ask powersports was closer to me as well but the distance i traveled to Hebron ohio was well worth it. i feel your pain as far as wanting your ride!! Hope you get that call tonight!!Vrrooom Vrroom!!

Woohoo!! Bike was delivered to my house today!:D Sadly, it started to rain today after 7 days of gorgeous weather :mad:, so no riding today. Came out of the covered trailer and right into the carport. Doesn't look like I'll be doing any riding until maybe Saturday when it clears up.
