Hey guys - I'm looking to get one of the new TT-R110E's for my wife, but the Yamaha dealers in Hawaii all get their bikes from the same distributer, who in turn get their Yamahas directly from Japan.
apparently the new 110's are made in the usa, and none of the local dealers can get them here!
Can you guys help me find a dealer (preferrably California or at least west coast) that sells new bikes still in the crate, and that do out of state sales. Hopefully a discount dealer to help offset the shipping costs to Hawaii

thanks

Some dealers will simply sign the check list and have you initial it. Do not ask me how I know.....

it's weird here how they can't get certain bikes. No TT-R125's or Rhinos over here either!
