    The Kawi day was done in house with our own vehicles, so at this time we don't have a date set but are hoping to do a ride again this year.

    As far as i know...z900s are sold out for this year... Kawasaki is not a big manufacturer and very few came to Canada

    My friend bought one a few weeks ago and it was one of the few remaining ones left

    Why can't one resource/good be more scarce than another?

    I would love to come to this. I've got my M2 and my gear, all but boots. I have an exceptionally wide foot and have yet to find a real motorcycle boot in my size. Would that be a problem?

    I've seen these advertised for my local yammie dealer too, and I wonder why its always the same list of bikes, and never any cruisers? Some people might like to try a Stryker, if not a raider.

    Not their target demographic would be my guess

    I believe Yamaha requires a boot, it could even be a work boot if that's all you have.

    As for selection of bikes, it's not really up to the dealership as Yamaha just shows up with a truck load of bikes and takes it from dealership to dealership.

    The list in the first post is what Yamaha said they would be bringing us. Not sure if they'll be any last minute additions.
