What lousy service.

The tires have not arrived and their "Tracking" page still hasn't changed so it really isn't much of a tracking page at all.

When to...

When to slap on the new tires... juuust a little more of a wait I think IOT ensure I have some time breaking them in but not wearing them out before Roaming. The 690 is still waiting on a new brake pedal and as of yesterday's arrival, the addition of the new GPS . I'd hoped the brake pedal would be here before the weekend . I'll just have to use the time to add the adv-spec side case covers on, wire in the GPS and put a new horn on to replace the second drowned horn. Really need to relocate the horn, maybe to the top of my helmet.
