I think orange will be stylish on the DX.
But again: how hard is it to get a local paintshop to change the skin on it, if you want something unique?:)

Its either a vivid blk with orange strips or find a 07CX for me, just waiting for the show and the numbers on the new motor.

bring on monday so we can order
I'd get in quick if you want a specific colour. If they run the same delivery
timing and stock levels as they did for the 07s you could expect delivery
over here either Dec or March 08.

I mate of mine is the salesman for Trivett in Sydney. PM me if you want
me to hook you up.

judging by last year...the dealer meeting and the unveiling of the 08s all happens at once...they throw a huge SYMBOLIC switch at the meeting,which updates the WEBSITE to the new 08s....

this happened last season if I recal correctly about midday EDT....and i remember immediately the website was overwhelmed and impossible to get onto....

my dealer told me a truck rolled into the dealership about 15minutes after the unveiling,with a truckload of the new bikes.....so he expects the same thing for this season...and If you arent 1st on dealers list for a v-rod,then you will be waiting till october....which is when the second order comes in.

the problem with the first shipment is the dealers dont know what they will get till they see the fax with models and colors on it....and who knows how many of each model....I know Ill be in constant contact with my dealer monday,being that Im the first on the list for V-rod,i should have my choice of whatever V-rod is there....hopeing for AW/vivid,but want to be sure of cost increases,motor size,possible options?.....which might make me wait and order one later??...monday will be the day that all is told!

Hey drew

don't quote me on this but i have heard that to 08 vrod's will get larger numbers sent to australia than the 07's as they didn't expect so many orders for the 07. I'm guessing the 240 tire and larger tank are probably the main contrubuting factors in this, i have an order already placed just got to wait for tuesday i think it is to get an offical order number. cheers for that anyway:cheers:

Ta for the info Beef.

Went out to Robbos today and had a chat with the owner Col.

He said much the same thing. They were surprised how well
the DX sold here and HD Aus will be importing more for 08.
He ordered 10 and got 3 07 models.

Hardly surprising they are selling so well. Had mine parked out the
front of Robbos at lunchtime and everybody coming in ignored every
other Harley in the store. :)

Geelong Harley are offering their last denim to the highest bidder.
I heard today they are up to A$39K. For our US viewers the RRP
(Aus MSRP) of a DX is around $30K.

DX sells in Egypt for LE 135 000, thats $23 700!!!
We are in the same boat here man, we have customs that add to the US price but the dealer here marks them up so much that they make another 25% margin on top of the dealer margin!! they sold 3 DXs here for 2007 and i think they have another on the way!!
