I'm having a hard time with the excuse of the Japan Disaster (though tragic and I feel for the Japanese). It just really seems to be an excuse being thrown around by dealers here in North America. I say this because of the fact that the bikes are being built in Thailand. Could someone explain it better to me?
Thanks for all the input everyone. Honda is a big company. They have factories of all kinds around the world. The one in Thailand is one of the oldest. So the stopping by japan for a once over or paper work just doesn't make any sense. Honda would not be the size they are if everything had to be Micro Managed by Head Office.
Either way, I can't wait for my Bike and Hope the very best for the people of Japan.
