Q: Long awaiting for the K-60 150/70/17 \"Scout\" to fit my BMW F800GS, I am very curious of when this tire will be available.
A: We hope we can start a new production end of May, delivery in June.


Q:
Is that mean that you already produced some and they have been dispatched? Are they available in Germany?
A: No, the first production will be start end of the month, there are no tires available in Europe.


I hope this clarifies gossips and speculations. I will call him later today to confirm the information.

They will start production by the end of May and should be available worldwide in June."

What else to say, the guy was driving so I didn't wanted to bother him any longer.

I'm not quite sure I'm the one who's not getting laid, given Sturgeon's "more 140's for me statement" and Huck's addiction to dropping into threads and posting nothing but troll speak. I think we need to start a get Sturgeon/Huck/and possibly Woodworks (given he's the one whole started this who "get Griz laid" thing in the first place) laid fund instead.

PS getting laid when you were in your 30's once doesn't count as "getting laid" as of late.

With you probably, yes. Why would a guy come dropping into a thread speaking about getting laid and cracking jokes about others supposedly not getting laid if that guy in fact was not getting laid?

Exactly.

Anyway, back to the tire discussion. I think we're all done hearing you old farts whine about private parts.

To add to the confusion an email from a dealer today stated that his 150's will be shipping from the East Coast of the USA at the end of next week. We will see

I don't believe anything I hear and only half of what I see. It would be nice though...

Either way, it's horrible business. If they aren't capable of entering a market correctly then they shouldn't enter the market in the first place. As in the USA.
Griz, you're blaming the cow for the milkman delivering you sour milk.

The problem of "whensitcoming whensitcoming whensitcoming" seems to be a North American one only. Note almost no European, Asian or Australian contributors to this topic joining in the "I emailed some guy called Billy who works at a shop that once sold a Heidenau tyre, and he said his uncle's best mate went to Germany and passed out in a taxi after Oktoberfest, and when he woke up there was a secret memo from Heidenau stapled to his forehead saying that this one pissant North American supplier no one at the factory has heard of before, will be getting new stock on Tuesday. But to get in on that you have to call up and cluck like a chicken as soon as they pick up."

If your US dealers are making promises they can't keep, then that's their problem, not Heidenau's. My local dealers tell me "not available. Order something else."

Further, complaints about "they shouldn't service the US market!" are ridiculous: they don't! Heidenau are privately imported to the USA by a bunch of dealers including Moto Amore, in response to intense internet interest largely fuelled by forums like this one. Heidenau don't now, and never have, had an official company presence in the USA.

If you like riding on different hoops, good for you, but is it necessary to come in here and heap scorn on a company you've never dealt with and riders you've never met?

Heidenau surely deserves some scorn. Tough you don't like it. This is a forum for gods sake and we can speculate and scorn as we wish. They should have very clear availability and information on their website. They say the tire is distributable. They have been made aware there is lots of interest. So why are they keeping us in an information vacuum. All we have are extracts of phone calls, emails and dealers yakking. Where the hell is the official communication. Post it as news on the Heidenau website!

German efficiency???? Do we need Enigma to figure everything out? Post it in German if necessary, Ich spreche ein bischen...

Moto Amore is THE U.S. Distributor of Heidenau tires.

Moto Amore is Heidenau USA and the chief Heidenau distributor in North America. Heidenau sure as hell has an official company presence in the USA.

I've dealt with Heidenau. I have a set on my bike right now. I've also dealt with Heidenau USA/Moto Amore and 4-5 other Heidenau dealers in the States.

The Griz screwed with this post 05-10-2011 at 08:46 PM Reason: Ride2Little can't deal with a wee bit of exaggeration. Oops, that exaggeration too. Sorry Ride2Little.
