It is called time, and in business time=money. They have to pay someone to place the item in the shipping container, type of a mailing address label, and either take it to the shipping company or call the shipping company to pick it up. 15-20 minutes to get an item ready to ship and they need to make a small profit on that time.

You sir, will become very unpopular on this forum with such truthful statements as these.

I'd fire someone if it took 15-20 minutes for them to ship 4 bolts.

I am making plans to go the Central Rally. Plan to leave the morning of August 10th and head home either Friday the 16th or Saturday the 17th(I am flexible on either).

If anyone wants to go along and split gas I have extra space on the trailer for 1.

Slowly but surely racking up miles. I wanted to stop in at moto sunday but wasn't feeling up to riding.
The pelican case I added is handy and seems to be a perfect fit for this bike other than it could use a little more depth. My tent will fit in front of it and a sleeping bag on top so I might try a HNF camp trip soon.

On a safety note. I was reminded to wear a helmet today which is good because I've been slacking. I was going to my favorite shop and there are a couple sets of S curves between it and my house so I put it on. On the way I hit some sort of big bug that would have certainly left a mark. I could see it coming at my right eye and it hit with a force that made paint balls at close range sound like gnats. If not for the face shield I might be missing an eye or worse. Oh and I got to pass a prius while getting better gas mileage.

I hoped you flipped the Prius driver off. I don't know what it is but Prius drivers are usually assholes. Maybe its just me but it seems that way.

lol No hippy stickers so I let them slide. I was busy scanning for dangers like gravel, cars and cops since I was unleashing all 30hp this beast has to offer in that pass.

I met the ultimate hazard on Sunday heading up to Moto.....a good ole country church letting out as I was passing by. Many elderly folks in very big cars! Talk about getting up on the pegs....
