well, For one, I was not bitching about the time, I was simply curious as to WHAT STEP IN THE PROCESS IT WAS AT, when I got the run around email, I simply called them out on it, and told them to just PLEASE BE HONEST. I didn't care if it was still in paint prep and unboxed or not. just say "it is still in prep for painting and waiting to be painted"
not that hard to do.
secondly, I didn't create the deadline, THEY DID.
on their own site it says 8-11 days to ship from date of order, DAYS not WEEKS.
I did NOT hold them up to this deadline THEY SET, I simply asked them where in the process is MY particular order? is it still beign melted down and injected into the molds? is it in paint prep? is it painted?
I don't know, but a little info on the process goes a LONG way.
I am also merely documenting my dialogue with them and the process from purchase to delivered at my door: to which I already have a tracking number now, so thanks for your pointless drivel. as well as the next item you order I also hope is a large steamy pile of excrement. would almost be like karma..
Now to address the "rideability issue" you can ride a bike without fairings, most streetfighter bikes have almost ZERO fairings aside from, the tail. and in regards to the ignition switch, that was nothing to do with fairings but to address rideability, which is I can still ride it, I could just fill up a gas can and fill up the tank at home and avoid the potential unattended bike issue, In fact I have rode it back and forth to work a few times already, as we have cameras and one way in and one way out, so less chance of theft.
as to everyone who seems to have the front forks of their bikes up their hind parts, stop stunting, and maybe you wouldn't have them shoved up there.
