Around here there is no ADM (additional dealer mark-up). I found two dealers willing to cut the price a little. But like you said, you have to find a dealer that has one. I think being placed on the waiting list does not really count. I mean if I was a dealer and someone walked in and offered me $1000 over MSRP he would jump right to the front of the line. After all they are a business. And how would you know? It's all about supply and demand. I hope you get your baby soon. It is a great bike to ride and keeps on getting better.
