When it comes to shipping bikes and getting them through customs, Honda USA seems to operate on Spanish time. Everything is mañana. I got the first 2018 bike in my area. I think it was the end of September that I finally picked it up. I ordered it as as soon as it was available for order, which I think was about April or May.
I believe there is 4 to 5 months of shipping delays "as in freight shipping" from the far east. Many far east ports were under lock down, which caused delays in cargo ships docking at the ports to pick up the cargo. About 1800 ships in line waiting to dock as per Bloomberg News. Santa can take some rest as well this year, as Christmas toys too will be delayed from the 3 busy ports from China 😭
I would not say the 2021's are widely available here in WA state, but it's no longer unavailable. They are here and nicely spaced out across the entire state.
I'm sure it's probably the same picture in other states.
nice hoops! I was a Pirelli fanboy for a long time; then the Pilot Roads snagged me with their incredible combination of all-weather grip and durability; but now I'm even more happy on Powers! grippier, and seemingly no loss of all-weather grip. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, modern tires are just SOOOO frikkin good!
