Default So now it's looking like March!!!

Well I'm bobut to start biting 20 penny nails in half! I just got an email from the dealer who's fixing my Spyder that they're ordering some more parts that they didn't think they'd need, and it's going to be a couple of more weeks...
The bike has been in their shop for 127 days and counting...
So I ain't very happy today!

But I have a couple of projects that I wanted to complete before the ryding season got here!
Remember; It's just an A&C model...
I got the saddlebag trim pieces to complete the transformation so that it lookds like an RTS
I've also got some TricLEDS stoplights and vinyl graphics that need installing...

That's worse than waiting for Christmas morning as a kid! Painful

You're dang right it is!
A little bit of good news though... Carlo called the Dealer and convinced him that it is in their best interest to keep customers happy. I now have been called to let me know that the bike will be ready "next week..."
I'll keep you all in the loop as this story continues to be written...

Can you go get the parts you need to modify/adjust yourself, the ones that you want to work on?

Unfortunately no... The frunklid is just a bit critical when getting things repostioned on the front end; I'm just not that good with tools that I'd trust myself to hang it correctly on my own... On the rear of the bike I've got brakelights and saddlebag trim pieces... I'd rather have everything here and lined up and correct before I start digging around.
Besides... I hope to be riding it home soon!

But I DO like the way that you think!

Good for Carlo. Carlo has helped me in the past and I got to meet him in Chicago, great guy.
I hope you get your Spyder back soon.
