Try Craigslist for a private used sale. Many sellers allow test rides as they are highly motivated to move their bikes along. I found some have even written up waivers to cover their "six". This is how I got a ride on a 900 and then bought one. I have found even the dealers listed as "test drive" spots don't have what you want to drive "in stock". The kawasaki demo days are few and far between. Amazing that H-D is all set up for this very issue, and they win many buyers with such customer service. It's a no brainer to have sufficient stock to allow your wishes given the money they can make from sales and service.
Best of luck trying to find one and hope you like the 900.
