Twisted Throttle Fail
I'm getting things lined up for the final Rolling Thunder in DC next weekend. The national chapter announced last December that this would be the last year and they were stepping down.
In preparation for the trip, I ordered a 13l tank bag to fit onto my CTX. Since it has nothing but tupperware as far as the eye can see, I cannot use a magnetically attached bag and am limited in my choices. On the Faceplant CTX forum, another owner has this really slick tankbag setup that attaches to a locking ring which he secured to his fuel door. I thought, "that's just what I need!" and ordered it.
The bag arrived on Saturday. The locking ring is MIA. Not in the box, not in the bag, not even listed on the packing list. I have to call them later this morning to figure out why they completely failed to ship one of the most critical parts of the order and what they plan to do to get me one before Weds.
I know better than to trust online vendors like this, but I cannot find the bag anywhere locally, so it had to be ordered regardless.
