...in finding and ordering a carbon fibre tank protector for my Terblanche era '07 SS800 Ducati. Shipping all the way from the UK @ $68 total (shipping included), I'm in no rush whatsoever. Thinner than the stocker, closer fitting to tank (thus increasing comfort via lessening reach to bars)

That's fast. My gauge cluster took about 2 weeks, and that was way before Christmas. Most of my delay was customs and very slow US delivery handoff....suspecting the global shipping from Ebay is quite a slow route?

I dunno, bought through ebay, but a very fast shipping time from UK vendor getting it out ASAP using Royal Mail>USPS.

Amazed, I left very positive feedback based on shipping time, haven't even installed as yet.

Wow. That’s awesome. Whom did you order from in the UK? RSR Carbon?

No, a vendor named "trackdaytyres". I have no idea who the builder is, no matter.

Went and done it today, a few other needs too. Replaced an oil temp thermistor, while there cleaned the oil strainer, did an oil /filter change and added a carbon front fender as well.

got to order stuff being produced for older models while still available . A carbon fibre "instrument surround" for my '95 900SS snagged today, $55 including shipping from UK. The foam padded original will just not last. Pic will follow when justified.

RSR Moto makes them still. Even if they’re out of stock when you look. There is a check box to be notified when the part is back in stock. I’ve used that and gotten a response in a couple weeks.

Both the front & rear fenders on my 93 SS resto mod are from them. The dash side covers also. A dash surround is next on my list as well once I’m ready to ride it. My foam pad is fairly well past it also.

You recently move to Canada, Sean?

Just for a day!

On a 3 week East Coast wander about kinda thing. Few goals on places & family to see. Had originally planned to drive down from ME through RI & CT to get the LI Ferry across. Figured I’d drop by and get you lunch & a beer.

Wife decided a couple days before we head to the airport that we were going to see Niagara Falls instead….then going to Canada to get some Icewine. This we did. Now we’re heading to VA to visit my sisters and then on to the Outer Banks to the Wright Brothers monument.

Pretty tired…exhausted TBH. Gonna take a break somewhere in PA just to rest.

As to quick service, a couple of years ago, I placed an order with RaceboltUK for some stainless bits. Exactly seven days from mouse click to arrival on the US west coast. Apparently, we have excellent postal arrangements with the UK.
