Last Summer I sat on one in the showroom of a dealership in Baton Rouge. That is how I was able to determine that this bike fit me best of the 3 sport tourers I was interested in (FJR, RT and the ST). The sales manager told me that Yamaha had some left over :? and had contacted him to see if he was interested in taking delivery of one w/out the pdp deposit, etc. So, it looks like maybe, depending on Mamayamaha's best guestamets of expected sales, if they end up w/a few x-tras they will contact various dealerships and see if they are interested in taking one in. I talked to a local dealer here in Jackson, MS, he is new and small and he advised me that he was just recently contacted by Yamaha w/the same ?, do you want one?, the dealer has never even taken a PDP order on one :? He will have his first ever FJR on his showroom w/in the next few weeks.
