My dealer already peeled the plastic off of my TFT by the time i got to the dealer.....they took my joy away from me...I mean who doesn't like unpeeling electronics...should have asked for more off the bike lol.

Mine says 2 weeks out as well. So same here ill post my thoughts.

Was going to do some cold weather riding today but it started to snow so that squashed that idea.
You should have told them to put a piece of expel on it! I told my dealer to leave mine on.

I have the BMW TFT protector. Its good. Cleaning the dash without one is a PITA. It gets dirty real quick.
Ahhh but you get the employee discount. It's a bit pricey if the $14 one works just as good plus it's two for $14.

By the time I noticed it was off I was already at home over an hour away. I didn't even think about asking them to leave it on.

Ah well, she will just have a little dust on her since the weather won't allow me to ride for at least the next 10 days. Hopefully, it'll be in by then.

yeah i may have already found that out...swapped out my wind screen for an MRA tinted one....i may have put a hand print on it when i was inspecting everything that i could see while the screen was off. Learned my lesson.

oops yeah, should be here in a week or 2. It's ok though my bike is at the dealer anyway so not like I can do anything with it lol. On a good note, the dealer is going to throw on my tank pad, gb covers, and oil/rad guard while they have it in the shop. Once, I get my stomp grips in then I will be all done with my minor mods.

I am contemplating getting a carbon fiber gas cap but i don't know how i feel about installing one that doesn't lock. I just feel like someone is going to mess with the bike. The current ones I've seen that do lock don't catch my attention.

I won't start a "Florida man" meme, but I don't blame you for being pissed. Most people would never sit on the hood of your car or get in the bed of your truck - amazing someone would sit on your bike.

you and me both...i even look at the full case covering i think it was 199....hard pill to swallow. Hopefully itll be in soon, too bad there is no tracking info so you can get a rough idea as to when itll arive.
