We caught a break today. The NHTSA approved the letter we will be sending out to dealers and customers so we will start sending them as soon as we have a recall number. We are also going to send parts to dealers as soon as they get here and not wait for a recall number.
Be patient my man... My friend Jeff and I both put money down on 2 G5s, A black one and a British Racing Green one. Were were told that they were under recall but that didn't matter. We really want our bikes too but are patient enough to wait as we want them right. Got a call on Thursday from Bill at Interstate MC in Rolla, MO that the parts are in Chicago and as soon as they get them they are going to drop everything and get right on them. Hopefully next week. Remember that absence makes the heart grow fonder. lol...Rich
Having waited many months to even get a bike (Machimo and Thunderbird) I have little empathy for someone having to wait two or three weeks. We live in a time of instant gratification, which in itself sucks. It didn't used to be that way, and maybe shouldn't be that way now.
Patience is not one of my virtues. I got the same call from Bill and he said the parts could be in as early as today but probably Tuesday. In the post after yours Kevin says that Classic hasn't got the parts yet, so I don't know how Bill is going to get them today or even by Tuesday. Seems nobody really knows what their talking about. I would guess it will be the week after next before I ever get my bike in to Interstate for the recall work. All I can say is this sucks!
Everyone is really being nice and offering encouragement and all you can say is "it sucks"?All I can say is WaWaWA get a grip,
I'm sorry, I meant to say I love having a brand new motorcycle sitting in my garage that I can't ride and don't know when it will be fixed so I can ride it.
