Fuck you
I stopped into NY Honda/Yamaha today to get my Smax inspected being it was due back in March.. as they inspected it I walked into the showroom.. no Quads, no Goldwings, No R1s or ANY sport bike. The showroom holds around 100 bikes they had 16 bikes only the used BMW gs police edition bike was the only one that didn't have a sold sign on it.

Darren said bikes are trickling in one or five at a time and those are sold.. he said now would be a great time to sell my KTM but I'm keeping it as where I'm moving there are fantastic roads all around me. I wanted to check out a goldwing but he had nothing until late fall.

Plenty of bikes in L.A. for sale. Maybe your local dealers didn't place the orders this year like they have in the past.

Nope he placed orders he is a pretty high volume dealer and also specializes in left over new sales but they can't get shipments. Same with KTM dealer... Cadillac, Chevrolet as well here. The car dealers are only getting the low frill cars.. most cars and trucks on the upper end are being delayed because of chips. Cadillac CTSV carbon fiber is back ordered that where part of the first 250 reserved .. they are delivering the cars with out the carbon parts that will be dealer installed when available at no charge.

Its not just whole cars but parts as well Neighbors Acura suv has a bad torque converter.. it's been at the dealer for 1.5 months as they wait for a replacement... they gave them a loaner until completed.

I seen this last year when I ordered tires for the car and found it impossible to locate any in America.. took two months I am now sitting on a of tires in the garage.

In a few months, food shortages will start and will catch all of us by surprise

Everybody will be wondering "How did this happen???!!!!"
We are already seeing some shortages.. but what is not being noticed is SHRINKFLATION.. That is when a product is packaged in the same size package yet less product is inside and the cost is higher. It'd a double hit that most consumers are not seeing.

Good news is IF you have one that doesn't have the dredded roof issue you can get $20k over sticker on the used market right now.. just seen one Outer banks sell for 17k over sticker.

Toyota cutting global by 40%

The world's biggest carmaker had planned to make almost 900,000 cars next month, but has now reduced that to 540,000 vehicles. Volkswagen, the world's second-biggest car producer, has warned it may also be forced to cut output further

40 MOTHERFUCKING PERCENT

due to chip shortage

This will BLOW up the Used car market on certain vehicles to insane prices. I'm hoping I own some of them to cash in on the shortage and panic buyers.

All kidding aside

Her quip is a masterstroke. Make no mistake, she and the democRATS aren't that stupid

She's playing into the empathy themes and courting ever more future voters, especially those coming in through Del Rio
