Unhappy Home at last...

Being new here I would like to first say hello to everyone. I ordered an 07 F4 in black a few weeks ago and it's finally in my garage. Needless to say that was one of the longest waits I have ever experienced. I have been a huge admirer of these for a long time and I still can't believe I actually own one. I looked long and hard and almost bought a Duc 1098 or the Aprilia RSVR Factory. But all things considered I went with my heart and picked up the F4. I live in Las Vegas and I have only ever seen a few here and everyone who rides anything other that a Japanese bike has a Duc. So far the bike is great but because of the weather here I have been unable to ride.....so still waiting and on the ride home from taking delivery I parked it in front of the house and when I came back a few minutes later there was a puddle of coolant not really a bunch but at the moment it seemed like everything the bike had. Dealer said it could possibly an overfill issue and it will take care of itslef. But if it does it again I lose the bilke for a few daysso that sucks...But anyway just thought I would share a bit.

Congrtas and welcome to the forum...you will not be sorry you chose the F4...there was a famous tennis player on here a while back from Vegas trying to sell his black F4R...though he was looking for full price on all his riding gear (Mark)....It may still be for sale, he was selling his ORO too ...any congrats again and this bike really is something special and the beautiful part is the more you ride it the more you will love it.

Welcome and congrats!

The coolant seems to be a normal thing (should only happen once) which is like the dealer says dumps the overfill out.

I believe she is the Devil in a candy wrapper.

Dova thanks for the confirmation I'm still a little unsure about my dealer I might use someone out of town for some things. And thank you to everyone for the positive comments. I had a little bit of buyers remorse while I was waiting for the bike to come in but that all went away when I saw MY bike. Plus like they always say you can't take the money with you when you go.... So what better to buy than the F4
