    Bike Bandit is awesome! Here's my story.

    Last March I ordered some riding pants and a face shield. About three weeks later I received the riding pants but no face shield. I got a e-mail saying the face shield is back ordered. No problem I can wait. When I tried on the riding pants, they did not fit. To snug around the waistline, imagine that. Anyway, I kept trying to get a hold of someone at Bike Bandit to get a return label... I gave up. Two months later I tried again. I didn't want to get stuck with the pants $260 I did get through and I got the return label and sent them back. Then out of the blue the face shield that I ordered came in! A couple of weeks later I received my reimbursement from the pants. Cool we are all square. Then I get a email saying the face shield was approved for reimbursement! I get another $65 for it. But I already received it... I thought about sending the money back, but I think that would just screw them up... I just ordered a set of tire. I bought them from Rocky Mountain. They will be here Friday, I didn't want to take a chance with Bike Bandit...
    My Motorcycles:
    21 Triumph Tiger 900 GT (coming to a town near you)
    16 Yamaha FJR1300 (Probably been to a town near you)
    82 1100e Drag Bike (needs race engine)
    81 1100e Street Bike (with race engine)
    79 1000e (all original)
    82 850g (all original)
    82 750e (parts Bike)
    80 KZ650f (needs restored)

    IMO, Bike Bandit sucks canal water through a straw!

    I've been waiting a month now for the Triumph connector for a SH775. I will buy used parts off of fleabay before I buy from them again!

    Of course, I get the automated emails reminding me that I still don't have my part!

    When I die, just cremate me and put me in my GS tank. That way I can go through these carbs, one more time!

    Well, I took Bob's advice and cancelled the orders that I had with Bike Bandit today (Both orders were over 7 weeks old!) and ordered parts from Hermys.

    Prices were EXACTLY the same. Service HAS to be better from Hermys!

    I'm never buying from Bike Bandit again! I promise! Really.......Never again!

    Please post back when you get the parts. Just curious if they continue to do well.
    Ordered a couple small parts for my Trophy about a week ago, and they just got here, so still pleased.

    Well........I got an email today from Hermys informing me that one of the 2 Triumph items was on backorder from the UK for 2-3 weeks, and wanting to know if I wanted the rest of my order shipped since it was in stock! (the Triumph connector for the SH775) Lot's better than the 7 weeks I waited for these items from Bike Crap-it,,I mean Bike Bandit!

    Excellent customer service IMHO.

    Hopefully I have found a better parts supplier!

    Thanks, Bob!

    Ordered side cover gaskets for my gs850 on October 27th, 2020 from Bike Bandit, still waiting.. 11 weeks seems a bit unreasonable, even with the world burning..
