Heads Up, USA, Here They Come!

Well, this certainly is a good sign! SYM's USA website was recently updated with this tantalizing graphic on the home page. I guess that means bikes are almost, "on the water", which means we could see them by sometime in May! I plan to get confirmation of this by the relevant authorities at SYM, but I doubt they'd put this message up on the site if they didn't feel pretty confident that SYM dealers will be rolling these beauties into their showrooms before long!
One thing that I've always appreciated about the way the SYM-USA group conducts its affairs: they don't say anything that can't be backed up by action, and they do not cut corners, either with the truth or the quality of their products!

Symba! Where are You?

This is getting to be like "Waiting for Godot"! I feel like I did as a kid, after ordering something from the back page of a comic book (they had cheap stuff back there that appealed to 12 year-old boys: "practical joke" supplies such as onion-flavored gum, whoopee cushions, smoke bombs, handshake buzzers, etc...) and counting off the "allow 8 weeks for delivery", which always stretched to 9 or 10 weeks with me running to the mailbox every afternoon, etc.... The good news is, we know for sure that the Symba is coming - a boatload of them! Unless the ship strikes a leftover WWII mine or something, we're going to see them soon. The wait is making my Joie de vivre go a bit groggy, though!
