Golly Gee. You had to go 1 town over to get the color you wanted? I called every dealer in S W Idaho and even 1 in Oregon (a 250 mi range)and NO ONE had a KLR in stock. All had waiting lists of folks who wanted one, first come 1 served when 1 came in. No dealer had a delivery date and none were ordering a specific color, they and the buyer could take what comes or the next guy thru the door would. I drove about 150 mi in the rain to get my greenie and was gratefull for it. I got it the first of June, had to put it away in early Nov due to weather, 5100 fun filled miles on it with no trouble. Can't wait until the snow melts so I can ride again.
