The product has never been sent, despite numerous emails to Hawkeoiler. The supplier claims to have re-sent the equipment, but has never done so. When I complained about this... and eventually threatened to get help, he blocked my emails. His site is still operational, so he is probably still scamming overseas buyers.

Nearly TWO YEARS later, I'm still waiting for the Hawkeoiler. Be warned...
... and YES, I blame John!
Reverse the charge, both Paypal and VISA provide buyer protection.... I'd have done it after 2 months.......

Teknic Gloves

Teknic Freeway WATERPROOF gloves, last less than 5 minutes in any rain. Tired of stopping to dry them out at gas station handdryers......

Monster Remote

What a POS! Dosn't even come close to working. WTF...before I ordered I read a few complaints about the volume control going max and min with one click. I thought "no biggie". Right out of the box the remote performs as mentioned. I got it for my wife who enjoys music on long rides, she said send it back.
Boy am I a hero with this one.

Sent it back today and picked up one of these -



Apple iPod radio remote (wired)

She will store the nano in her jacket vest pocket run the remote wire down the jacket right sleeve and clip the remote on her arm cuff. And now she has FM too.
Looks like it may work - ride testing in the morning.

Moto related: Shift Torrent gloves. They leak in light drizzle, nevermind a torrent. Contacted Shift, they don't give a shit. Gloves are "made by a third party vendor" (8-year old Chinese children probably) so I guess it's not their problem.

Non moto: Nissan Frontier. The assholes that screwed that thing together wish they had half the talent of the above mentioned Chinese children. Something broke almost weekly, and it got worse gas mileage than my full-size Chevy.

Easy...

Happy-Trail pannier rack



Incorrect hardware, not once, but twice. Replacement hardware (still incorrect!) came "postage due".

Vaguely intended to fit my bike. Alignment looked like something you'd expect to see from a poorly motivated high school metal shop class. Pretty embarrassing work, really.

Customer service?

What a waste.

Here's a pic of the ice-cold weld that left me scrambling to find a mig welder on a recent trip. I'm still not sure how they managed to get zero penetration. Perhaps the cheap-ass paint (I hope that's not powder-coat!) stuck it together long enough to get the racks installed:

Givi windscreen for V-Strom 650 ...

Total p.o.s. Was told it would eliminate the horrific wind buffeting.

If anything, it made it even worse.

Lockhart Phillips small turnsignals for the Zephyr. Connectors are much larger than the stock ones. The one front melted a bit from the running lights. The rear ones just plain quit working in spite of good connections. Lockhart Phillips ignored my e-mail on dealing with a melted signal.

I don't plan to buy another set of cheesy aftermarket signals, I'll find a good set like the Buells maybe. I also won't buy Lockhart Phillips again unless absolutely necessary (and that isn't likely) since they don't bother to even answer much less a turn down on backing their product. What crap.
