2.5 weeks down the line and KTM still can't give me an indication of when the bike will be finished and I have to constantly phone them to get any kind of response at all. Kak service  :xxbah:
Jakkie, sal more daar n draai maak en gaan kyk.
Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.

Just went back into my emails. I started the process 3 weeks ago  :eek7:

Then one salesman went AWOL. Started with a new one around the 4th eventually paying the deposit (which was ready from day 1) on the 7th. So 2.5 weeks into the process, skipping the shit with the AWOL (and clueless) first salesman and they still can't give me an indication of when I'll get my bike.

Cocky, laat my asb weet as jy daar was. Ek gaan vandag my toys begin rond bliksem soos 'n besetene

Buff, out of curiosity, how many 690s did they have on the floor? I would hate it if I hit the nail on the head with the post above

Nee man. As jy hom eers het is die wag lang vergete. Ek is seker ou Kokkie sal die antwoorde kry wat jy soek vanoggend.

Kyk as hy dit nie kry nie...kan jy maar tekere gaan soos 'n besetene....dit sal nie help nie...... :pot:

Binnekort smile jy weer so breed!  :deal:

 :laughing4: Cash is King brother  ;)

When I ordered it they said it would take about a week to get the bike and then still more time to prep it. Then 2 days later they said my bike had arrived (Wed). So I paid the balance and collected it on Fri  :o

Besides a few 2nd hand bikes I saw no new 690's on the floor. But don't give a hope just yet, chances are the holdup is with the Omega kit because they said stock wasn't an issue on the bikes. It be worth the wait, hang tough  :thumleft:

Sal baie geld spaar maar jy sal altyd vies wees dat jy nie gewag het nie.

Onthou ek moes my 1200 L/C amper 8 maande vooruit bestel en die Adventure 6 maande.
