    Lucky 13?

    I hope to be picking up my new SX this week. As I am learning more and more as I dig into all the forum threads I have a question....does the last 4 digits of my VIN represent what bike number I have.....lucky 0013???? and if so what does this mean.... If I have a 2017 but I seem to see numbers higher than 13 on 2014 models I don't get why my number would be lower. Or does this reflect the number of the model year (2017) only and not the entire production run. Just curious, plus it will help me justify why 13 is a LUCKY number.
    I've had a bunch of different bikes, nothing can replace the experience of getting the first bike, but this has to be the second most anticipated ride and soon to be lack of sleep out of 15 bikes that I have owned....can't wait.
    My wife said to me this afternoon, "I bet you can't wait to experience that power between your legs"....what do you say to that on a forum where I dont know anyone.

    Every model year EBR started from "0" again, so you have the 13th bike made in 2017. Congrats!! You must have a big garage with all them motorcycles.

    thanks for the info. I changed the signature to reflect that those were past bikes. My garage is only big enough for my wife's car, my bike and when I win the lottery, a second bike (and third if I take out our bicycles)

    Considering that I scored a 2017 for such a great deal....I would consider my bike lucky number 13!
