TLDR, but did you mention the name of the vendor anywhere so we know?

Is there any Inmates that live in his area? Maybe they could go pay him a visit for you. This is B.S. This is a big community and if he wants to sell any more luggage he will step up and do the right thing and pay you your money back.

That sucks!! I don't have any ideas for you that haven't already been stated here.

In the future though, I probably would not do business with anyone that writes like that.

Cause english isn't his native language? There are a few honest people who can't write in english...you'll find the way to communicate. However I admit that seems like this vendor didn't even try to understand what the customer was ordering.
It's a shame what happened to Eric but don't judge all the non-US vendors / non english speakers based on this. In fact, I buy almost everything for my bike/car/mtb from overseas and never had a problem with vendors from eastern europe, taiwan and the US...

Thanks for the sympathy everyone. I am upset about the money but the really bad part is that I have wanted to take this trip for 15 years and this was the only summer we could do it. Now the wife (who rides an 09 F650 GS) is pregnant sooooo I guess it will have to wait another 18 years. I am happy about the baby but sad about the trip.

While I have a lot of empathy for your situation - bluntly - Man up - if this blip discourages you from taking your trip...well ...how do you expect to deal with issues on the road. it's not the luggage that makes the trip it's the attitude

Stop by Houston and I'll lend you a set of Nelson Riggs 850CL bags - or figure a way to get them to you

In hindsight, I should have just figured out a way to pack my stuff and left but I kept saying to myself, "he shipped it, it will be here any day." By the time I really gave up, it was too late in the summer (to hot) for my pregnant Austrian wife and then my father passed away quite suddenly after an 11 year battle with cancer so it just wasn't meant to be.

Bulgaras:
THANK YOU so much for your generous offer. I can't tell you how awesome that is. I however could not accept these from you as this is your labor and how you make your living. THank you for the offer!
