    No and I don't want to bug him if he's on vacation or something... I know he was close in December but needed a few parts...he found a few issues (they were rebuilt by the original owner) and only had 6000 miles...kinda confused...

    I spoke with him and he said he’s had no communications whatsoever from you. Are you using the email address listed in his profile?

    After talking to Steve this evening, I find it very interesting that you would come on here and call out someone who is very respected on this forum yet not make an effort to call or email him at all since you posted this. I wonder if you are more interested in soiling a person’s good name instead of working with the person to resolve your issues.

    Well Steve has a great reputation and I have no intention ofĒsoilingĒ him.. just wanting an upt because itís been since early January last time I had contact. Just trying to keep a 6500 Mile original GS together! He can have all the time he needs and I donít want to bug him. Kelly

    I get that but then why haven’t you contacted him directly instead of posting a thread on here? Especially after saying you would on Sunday?

    How about deleting this thread and just do the responsible thing - contact him

    Likely because he didn't take into account that maybe the PM system is broken*) and his email got eaten by a spam filter.

    *) my most recent PM's went unanswered and email notifications by the forum seem to be broken as well.

    I see no "calling out" of Steve in this thread. Mr. keso151 is simply asking for an update, which seems fair considering the length of time involved.

    As for the PM and email system being broken here, it seems to work for me.
