I ordered a GPS mount and AT specific rack online. Arrived 48 hours later. What is it that's unavailable from stock?

Red DCT (Shipping 05/29). Previous: 30 bikes (Diavel, SRR, GS, eXplorer, MTS, Tiger, yadda). In charge of general insecurity.

Ah... I was going by anecdotal banter about crash bars etc. A lot of people were moaning about TT having got the bike first but being last to the party with the actual production bits.

Maybe things have improved. That'll teach me to check first!

I called a couple of weeks ago to buy the pannier racks and they said (laughing while they said it) - wait ten weeks and call back they might be in stock, or order now and then wait ten weeks!

I bought some Givi Trekker Outbacks the next day from the local distributer up here in Northumberland as a result.

Spoke with Touratech (UK) it seems like their HQ in Germany have prioritized the US with the UK only having what ever is spare, they had some headlight guards in yesterday, but are having all parts in very small numbers..

If this is to do with the AT parts then it's deeply ironic. The US has all the bits and no bikes whereas Europe has all the bikes and no bits.

Someone at Touratech needs a serious talking to about product planning and/or logistics.
