The first week in November as confirmed by my dealer. Seems like they have issues with customs. Oh well, the wait for my vaporware spyder continues.
as of Nov 1st, I do have a clause in my contract, if it is not delivered to me by Nov 1st, I can get my full deposit back, no questions asked. but my dealer is still sticking with the "any day now" story. Which of course can drag on for another life time....

CUSTOMS???? Then why don't are Canadian 1st owners have theirs?
Good point and that has me thinking, how long does it take to ship the units from the Canadian plant to a Canadian dealership? Seems like the Canadians would have at least had a half dozen or so units by now.

fruitial as it may sound, I called BRP. They told me they can give out no information (expected). After I informed them that I have given BRP 1,000 for a product, BRP now has a legal obligation to tell me when this product will be avaliable to me. He tried to tell me to contact my dealer in which I told him that my dealer passed on 1,000 dollars of my money to BRP to secure the spyder, because 1,000 dollars is required by BRP at the time of signing, that binds BRP to the contract and also an assumed obligation to inform me of shipment. I also stated I am not looking for production numbers, numbers being produced, or allocation numbers, simply shipping information,, Have they shipped, Are they shipping, WHen will they start showing to the US states, Notice not saying specific dealers. He put me on hold for a moment and came back and told me that the spyders are being shipped as we speak, they started shipping on the 16th out of the MFG, The spyders that were produced had a high % of them selected for quality testing whre they are a new product. They then worked out some shipping/crating issues and actually started to leave for delivery on the 16th. All of the first 600 spyders will be delivered to dealers by Nov 1st.

I also notified the BRP rep that as of Nov 1st, I am no longer locked into the spyder and can request a full refund of my deposit of $1,000 with no questions asked. He then again informed me that all of the 600 spyders will be delivered by Nov 1st. and that they will start showing up at dealers any day now as they have been on the road since Tuesday in transit.

Patience guys patience, just think of how good it will be when they do get here.
Mrfix,
I have no problem with being patient. It frustrates me when I am kept in the dark and get bounced back and forth between the dealer and BRP. Most of the frustration on this board could have been avoided if BRP would have just kept us in the loop.

Charles

That is the most under handed thing I have seen anyone pull yet.
THANK YOU!!! That rocks, way to go, Charles. Best hard information I have read in days and it makes sense to boot. Would not hurt at all if they could post that on Tryspyder. "We are insuring the greatest quality product be delivered to our first customers and appreciate your patients" and give the date they shipped.

JUST let us know BRP.!!!!
It is not to much to ask to not be jerked around. I have been reading many posts that people would jump ship to Honda in a New York minute if they come out with a roadster.

Hi Mrfix, Yes, it will be SOOOOOO good riding a spyder in temps below 40 degrees until the snow shows up in november/december. It will be awesome to peek out the window seeing where the spyder is stored and know that the average high temp for the day is 10 degrees F. and also knowing that I wont be able to move the spyder until that 3-4 foot snow bank is gone in order to get it out of storage. Yea,,,,,,,,,,, it will be sooooo good,,,,,,,,,

"Every day that passes is one day I wont be able to ride a spyder this year"
"North east riding season = late April = late November"
Todays date, Oct 18th, As of today there are only 43 days left of riding if the season ends Dec 1st. Snow or a cold snap will reduce that greatly.

If I ordered it in july, then I need to have patience, If I ordered it in march,,, they have run out and now I want the product.

Charles, it is far better break in a new engine in 40 degree weather than it is in the heat of summer. The spyder will thank you for waiting. besides, it's only weather

Hi guys, not despair, everything in life comes and the SPYDER arrive, I also did my delivery of 1.000,00 € in July 2007, I am in Spain (Canary Islands) and will have to wait until August 2008, or more.
I do not speak English, but every day I still your forum with the translator of Google, for the time being this is my only consolation until who knows story. So learn about the spyder for when you mount.
ROUTES AND GOOD LUCK WITH LARGE MACHINE
Pardon my English, but use the Google translator.
