I was looking at those, wondering where a good place to fit it might be. I think I have to move it away from being so exposed up front. Wonder if there is space up by the mask. Hmmm. More to follow.
Aw, where's the fun in that? You'll notice I didn't suggest a bell. ;)

We have two sets of tires coming from them, with "Free Shipping", but I'm not impressed with that particular option. The tires are coming via Greyhound and their tracking page shows nothing but the parcel pickup date. Nothing at all about where the parcel is or when to expect it.

Hardly what I call impressive.
Greyhound? That's a new one on me. Last I talked to them (about 6 weeks ago), they had just started to use UPS. Up until then, it had been either by post or Purolator.

Any of the 3, it took a week, and I had tracking. I'd call them, this don't sound right.

I've found them to be excellent to deal with, really invested in doing right by their customers.

It hasn't been a week yet so maybe I'm jumping the gun, but it is kind of strange for them to be using Greyhound. We are on the UPS route; that would have been a better choice.

Maybe next time, if there is a next time, I'll access them telephonically.

, fair enough, and your suggestion is probably a better horn than the OEM.

GPS City called today, pkg is in the mail (that was fast). Spent a few buck this week. New GPS, KLIM pants, billeted brake lever, shock bleeder valve, engine covers...geez I'd better sell some of my wife's shoes to make room for this stuff.

Ordered them (E-07 Dakar rear and E-10 front) April 23rd picked them up at Greyhound terminal in town today.
Greyhound link works just have to keep opening up the [+] symbol.
Ours we're probably on the same truck my truck said left Toronto to Ottawa I was on the way (Peterborough).
Not to bad in my opinion.

Ours left on the 25th. Clicking the + a couple of times opens up the full info screen but there's never anything more than the 'picked up on the 25th' detail. I phoned Greyhound today and the lady said that our location meant that the tires went to Toronto and would be dispatched from there to our home address, but she didn't know when.

Sounds like they're trying different shippers to see which one fits best. Give them feedback, I did after they sent mine by oops.

Good idea, but what service goes by the acronym "oops"?

Posted a 60 liter Bags-Connection Dry Bag in the Flea Market if anyone's interested.

And some Teknic saddlebags too.
