    865r Is Here

    I have just been informed that my 865r (aka old man edition)arrived at the dealership this evening. It shipped from Horicon WI earlier today, but it is just a few hour drive. Some of the Bling is backordered still, so I’ll go to the dealership in the morning and figure out what the plan is. I should be able to get it next week (minus a few accessories).
    It ended up getting delivered 3 weeks late because of an engine and air conditioning part shortage.
    I’m sure glad it’s finally here. Even if it’s short a few things, it’s still pretty functional with standard equipment...cab, wiper, AC, power dump.
    I will take a few preliminary pictures. Not sure if it comes in a crate or what.

    Edit: Will the administrators allow me to modify my signature line this point, or would that be a violation of forum protocol since the machine hasn’t been delivered yet?

    I took it for a spin around the grounds at the dealership. I must say it’s pretty nice!
    The AC works great. Even on the lowest fan, we had to turn the temp knob to add some heat, because it got too cold within 5 minutes. It cools great at idle too—I had been worried about that.
    Should have it by next weekend, but the work lights are back ordered, along with a couple other things.
