Hi Andy

It is a cafe on the A20 bottom of Wrotham Hill. (about 3 miles south of Brands Hatch.

If you are coming from the north you would pass Brands on your left, keep going through West Kingsdown until you get to a small roundabout. 2nd left down the hill (runs parallel with the M20.) At bottom of the hill is a roundabout 3rd left (over
M20) to another roundabout, 2nd left and the cafe is on the left had side just after a Total garage.

Bummer Colin, why are they taking so long? Mitch did say that they might not know what they where doing, seems he was right!

Hope you get it back soon so we can go out before the crap weather gets here!

Mines not!:D

Seriously though, my bike is three years old now and been tracked at Misano in 2004 for two day's and ridden hard on many weekends without misfortune. As reported in previous threads, apart from the tilt switch and clutch mod the only other things I have had done under warrenty is a blown front core plug (on the way for a service at Red dogs) and paint peeling on the leading edge of the green faring panels.

Does it appear that the newer models are suffering with more problems than the old? (or are they?) It would be interesting to know who has had what done when, the mileage and age of the bike (maybe frame no's would give an indication on whether it is within a close batch of bikes or not!) Would someone like to start a table up on this forum to give all an indictaion on this?

I sympathise with you guy's :( if your bike is off the road. As we have said before, customer service is not what it should be!

Keep your peckers up!:lol

Re: Everybody's bike seems to be at KJM at the moment

Lloyd is there any chance you could fit a sidecar to your benelli? It would make it easier for you to keep your balance and all of us off the road could come along for a ride and keep you company. also we would be saving on petrol so we could afford to bring some beers and a pot noodle to scoff on the way !! What d ya reckon mate ??:D

Re: Everybody's bike seems to be at KJM at the moment

Mine's not either, infact having just been serviced it is sitting in the garage all washed and polished up on it's stands and anchored to the floor, I was putting it away for the winter, but the way things are going it is going to be back out tomorrow!

Oakdene is a bit of a hike for me, anywhere closer to Hampshire?

If that's the only way that you can keep up with me Colin then that's what I will have to do! :rollin :rollin :rollin

Seriously though mate, it's a total bummer that you still have not got your bike. Ask that the warranty be extended for the time that you bike is off the road (that goes for all you guy's) after all, all the time it's off the road your warranty is running out and sure as hell it will need something 1 week after it runs out!

Andy, do you fancy a trip to Boxhill tomorrow? (Near Dorking) It is closer to you and would be a good ride out for both of us!

I haven't been to Boxhill in years, but it would be good to meet up with a fellow owner, what time you looking at getting there if we do go?

11.30 to 12.00ish, it should take me an hour to get there as I live in Maidstone, Kent. If you are going, mines a green & silver one and I have a green, white & red helmet. Oh Er!:lol

Look forward to seeing you there if you can make it.

Re: Everybody's bike seems to be at KJM at the moment

Yeah, I will do my best to go, other than hitting pee soup fog in the morning, I shall leave around 10 ish, that will get me there for aroung 1130 ish, Mines's a Silver Black model, I'll be in black and silver leathers and a silver and black lid!!!

What a squid (as the yanke's like to call them!)

Mind you, we'll probably be the only two 'Nelli's there!

What is the weather forecast by the way!

Mines at KJM.

Mines at kjm after only 1200 miles needs a modified clutch and oil pump!
It looks as though when they drop off the tornado i will send them my TNT as it needs the latest mapping to go with the upgraded fans.

Re: Mines at KJM.

I hope everything goes okay with the new oil pump Zebo. I waited over 6 weeks on mine arriving and when it did it was damaged>:

Keeping my fingers crossed for you buddy;)
