Hello laddies and lads. I am new to this forums and cant wait to get my bike. I do need some advice from you guys. abs or non abs, and most importantly, what dealer does not rape you on their prep/delivery fees. North Hollywood dealer is nice, until you see the blue ink and are in my opinion outrageous.

Hello. Welcome to the forum. Search the forum for abs. There have been numerous discussions about both. In the end, the decision is yours. As far as getting a good deal, I'll assume you are in SoCal because you mentioned North Hollywood. Feel free to PM me and I'll share my experience with you and get you contact info of (in my opinion) a fair place in SoCal to do business with.

Hey foobar I saw your bike today at the shop, i was told by the dude that helped me out, not Greg. I guess you have done the service.

Cool. Yeah, took it in for the first maintenance. I saw another red w/ABS on the floor....I think it was calling your name. :)

Good luck. I'm sure it will all work out for you. Hope the guys there are treating you well.

If the color is going to bother you down the road, hold out for the black. If you are not in a hurry to get the bike, just put a deposit down on the one you want and wait it out. I'm not sure if we will see color changes in the US for 2012 but that's another thing to consider.

Sounds like you are pretty close to getting one. Good luck. Just be happy with your decision whatever that may be.

Nice. From what I have been told, the ABS are going to be even harder to find for a few months. I was able to score the black ABS only because a guy who had been waiting for the red one passed on it first.
Stopped by another bike shop yesterday to pick up some gear and they were sold out of the cbr 250rs. They had 4 all non abs last week.
