I just walked out of the office and there is another Ridgeline parked a stones throw from mine. I have passed a few on the road but this is the first time I have been parked near another one.

I'll try to intoduce them to the ROC

I have had my RL since July 16th, and have seen a total of four other ones on the road.

I saw another black one in town last night. I also parked next to a black one a while back, but left before it also, so that owner didn't see mine.

I passed yet another black RL on the interstate today, going the opposite direction as me...on a car carrier, on the way to a dealer. :rolleyes:

saw 2 more ridgelines - the grey one was in the parking lot of my MD. left a ROC brochure for him ( or her).
the white one was in front of me going to lunch. I have not met the owner of the white RL yet. Yes I turned on the yellow. I had the camera taking pictures from on the dash. And I saw a new Blue one ( it had a navi ) at the Wendy's on US 71B with Kansas tags but my camera batteries were dead.

Sitting on 14 sightings since I bought mine in March. Took a trip to Norfolk on Saturday- 250 mile roundtrip from Richmond. Zero sightings but I did pick up my first windshield stone hit on the way. You've all been through this- you hear that sickening noise of stone hitting windshield and you quickly hunt for where it hit. Mine got me just to the left of the UPC code by the Honda label on the driver's side. Another 2 inches to the left and it would have missed me entirely. Oh well, hopefully I can get the star filled in before it spreads.

How is this accomplished? I honestly did not know that minor hits and pits can be repaired. Do you have go to a glass shop? I too have a chip/pit that I would like to fill. My wife's glass on her 02 crv has gotten hit and cracked twice already this year, from stones off Hwy 84. Thank goodness our insurance covered it.:)

Most places will come to you, at least in my experience. You can have them come to your house or your work, and the repair takes about 20 minutes (depending on the extent of the damage). It's really easy. Some people even do it themselves, but I'm not sure if there are any trustworthy do-it-yourself kits out there, and the real thing costs $$$$.

Do a google search for windshield glass repair, you'll get many hits. I'm sure you can even do a local google search to find a travelling windshield repair person. Good luck!

I am starting to see them in a somewhat frequent manner. I think that a few people in my town must own them because there is another red one, a silver one with dealer plates on it, a black one and a green one I have seen a few times. There was another black one at the drug store and I walked up to a lady and said nice truck only to find out she was driving an accord. Didn't know the accord had the same big key we do ;).

I took delivery of my RL late March and did not see another one until July which was parked in the airport garage. I didn't see another one until late August that was actually on the road. Now I see them all the time - at least once or twice a week. There's a silver one in my neighborhood now - I see it in the grocery store parking lot from time to time. I've only seen one other red one so far, however. I still get looks - they're not that common yet in Denver yet and they are quite striking to most people.

Most insurance companies will repair minor windshield "spidering" at no cost to you (no deductible either). The key, though, is that the "spider" cannot be within your normal line of sight.

Just FYI.

I too have seen a number of Ridgelines around town. None of which seem to excited about the fact that I, too, have a Ridgeline. My son LOVES the truck, and that's all I need to feel proud about my purchase.

Working in a tourist community and a location that has a reputation for its residents having $$$, I tend to see 1-2 new RL's a week.

Yesterday, a silver one. I could not get to talk to the owner :(
Thursday, I saw a new 'local' with a green one. That makes 5 in one small town :p

And last week, I met another RL owner from the Scottsdale (AZ) area and gave him a brochure. I also saw a black RL driving down the highway a day or two earlier.....all while working. And on my day off (last Sunday)I saw two in Flagstaff (AZ) - A blue one (we waved at each other - was that you Mentallyabused? or Delphi 7x10) and 2 minutes later, a white one.

I have probably given out 10-15 brochures ( in person or on a parked RL) so far, but don't know if any of them checked out the site.

When we had our meet in August, we laughed because some of the locals joked with me about 'stalking' them when we finally met! They were kidding of course and we laughed on how the meet came about.

I always call my friend (Arizona Ridgeliner!) and tell him 'Just saw another Ridgeline'. He has yet to see another one on the road (needs to get out more!). Oh well, that's my sighting stories....

You can also leave them one of the brochures on his window or windshield? Print it out off the ROC.

I noticed a green RL yesterday. That makes three other RL's in my neck of the woods besides me. The closest dealer is a three hour drive. That might have something to do with it.;)

We went to a breakfast meeting with our service club this morning, and when we came out our RL had been cloned! Sitting right next to ours was another Silver RL. It had a trailer hitch too and from the rear they looked identical. On closer inspection, it was a RTL w/moonroof, no Nav. I couldn't leave a ROC brochure because it was pouring out and I didn't have a plastic bag. Drat.
