Good on you, happy that Greg continued to deal with you and based on your actions here, I will be happy to take my business up with you.

I think that you'll find that most suppliers are on this forum, Motorrad is as is Waspworks, Safari tanks etc, You never know who's watching you.

Steve, how did your leg heal up? I still remember that morning at Noccundra when the Scotsmun asked about heading back to Bolan to get the car for you. A few blokes convinced you that it was too far to go back, and to go on to Camerons corner because your leg might feel better and you'd regret pulling out. The way you were limping I knew you weren't going to feel better. I felt for you when I saw you at the corner. You were now even further away.

Add me to the list! (of positives) Just ordered a set of crash bars and a bash plate off Steve, ordered last Thursday, fitted on the bike this morning! This is great service for out here, it usually takes 3 days for anything to actually get here. Thanks Steve, expect a few more orders from me

Mate its the stuff! I'll get some better pics tomorrow but ts a tough piece, very thick alloy etc, great build quality, should last a longtime and take a beating. Way better than the stock one i reckon for about the same dough.

Ah yeah mate... Memories eh! I rode from Cameron Corner with Scots as my wing man along "Bulloo Downs Rd" but the road was shit and crashed again in a wash out. Scots walks over casually as I was crying like a baby in my helmet from the pain, kneels down and simply says... "slow down you stupid fucker or I will leave you for the crows!"... At this stage I still wasn't aware my foot was broken from the two days before until I got to Thargomindah. I ended up with a blood clot in my calf 4" long and was shooting up Walfrin long after my ankle had healed. I still have the metal in the foot as a reminder .. The things we do for our passion/sport eh!

[QUOTE]Give him one of those " cement " t-shirts that you've got Steve [QUOTE] Well I may just do that... They are becoming a collectors item. I have the 'Adventuremite' T-Shirt on riders all over the world now. But the HTFU Moto Cement T-Shirt is the fave for the hard core Aussie riders

Mate no offence taken... Im a big boy and from time to time deserve a smack... and I had dropped the ball. I am an internet based business after all so I must take my medicine when delivered online. I sent Greg an email with the pricing you are after. Cheers for the positive feedback tho from the other guys. It is nice to know we mostly get it right.

Cheers

Steve

I'm in the process of buying the first couple of accessories for my KLR (barkbusters and pivot pegz) and am finding the communication to be on par with O/S car parts stores I've dealt with previously - very prompt and informative, thanks Steve

Justin.

G;day guys,

I only signed up to this site to reply to this thread.

I sent a question on Sunday afternoon regarding wolfman lugage and pivot pegz, and lo and behold Steve replied that evening.

Well done that man!

I'll be spending a few g with him as soon as I get my new ride, not because he's a cheap internet business, but because he provides service!

More positve experiences for us as well. Its good to deal with someone who has real product knowledge. THe product lines he is selecting wont let anyone down in the bush and to me thats the bottom line.

I dropped in to see Steve this week and got a couple of pairs of Klim gloves - no prompting, immediate 10% discount making them only marginally more expensive than buying OS.

He also has Rox straps as well now - about time there was a local outlet.

I have just sold a set of Summits to a bloke in WA who was blown away by the quality of the Wolfman gear.

Inmate Ozadvntr has been keeping me supplied with Wolfman gear from Adventuremoto and I have just bought a set of the Expedition dry bags but haven't used them yet.

I have the tank panniers as well and they are awesome bits of kit and fit the F8 really well.

Bought a Jnr enduro bag for my son's DRZ400, made for the bike.

Steve has great quality stuff at excellent prices and all the people that I know have dealt with him cannot speak highly enough of the guys business ethics.

Top effort Steve and I look forward to meeting you on a trip someday.

Andrew

I thought they went out of business? Tyres for bikes bought a whole shed full of 'em after some kind of closing down sale a few years back, and I bought a bunch basically for nothing.

Good quality straps... be careful as they don't handle months of direct sun all day long (don't leave them on the bike when not in use). I've had a few snap on me as a result.
