I have a problem

So as everyone probably already knows, i want my first bike to be the M50 when it comes out. however, i am now hearing it isnt coming out till march!!

i close on my house on jan 14 and i am taking the MSF course the week of the 18-23. i will then be doing some serious bike shopping. i dont think i can wait till march because a) it is too far away and b) i wouldnt have the bike and be riding a while for bike week at daytona.

SO...what do i do? ive researched the yamahas, suzukis, hondas and kawasakis. all the other possibilities have something about them i dont like. whether that be carb instead of fuel injection, air/oil cooled instead of liquid, ugly spoked rims instead of nice mag wheels, or just too much money. i cant figure out what i want to get!

what i really want to do is just "borrow" a bike a couple months until the m50 is out but i dont see that happening. if i buy a used one then trade it in i take a huge hit. and i cant afford to buy one outright so i have to be able to finance it.

anyone have any suggestions? maybe someone in FL has a couple extra bikes to loan me one?? haha.

just some discussion on possibilities would help me out a lot...thanks.

Well I saw this beast at Biketoberfest and was quite impressed with it, low and fat!!! It's a Yamaha but something to look into IF the zuki are late, but I wouldn't put much stock into dates, So far the SV650s showed up way earlier then most expected. Plus throw some cash at the dealer for a pre-order and one might just become freed up prior to Bike Week which is the Offical Kick Off to the 2005 biker season so I would assume the stock would be out ready to be purchased after riders take test rides at the display tents. Also I'll ask the Zuki dealers in O-Town when they expect them to be in.

Oh anyway this is that Yamaha, a factory custom one for that matter. It ran about $26 to $34k as seen as best as I can remember. :)
