My bike was meant to arrive at the dealers today. :)

It didn't :(

Could be Monday though :)
There is a consignment of 13 bikes heading for Ducati Glasgow. They were supposed to ring me back to confirm that my bike is in it. They didn't. :( Which probably means they forgot :mad:

Funny, I was just wondering if you had heard anything. I was on the phone to Harry a couple of days ago for parts and there was no word. Blair and Martin were in Spain for a few days 'training' last week.
I've been saving up for years and still can't buy a job like theirs.

I said to Harry I never even got confirmation about my registered envelope I sent down, a while later Kerry emailed and said it's there and we hope to call soon. ???
Communication is not their best.

Yes, Last week they were off playing with the 1299 Panagale. :rolleyes:
I think I might have mentioned already that when I last called, a week past Tuesday, Kerrie told me mine was in the build at the factory and was expected in about a couple of weeks. She even gave me a reg. no. My insurance is due next Tuesday and I wanted to get the Scrambler covered so I called on Thursday for any news. Blair was with someone, Kerrie was on a phone call. Tracy told me there were 13 bikes on their way but didn't know if mine was among them. She said that Kerrie would call me back and let me know. I'm still waiting. You're right about DG and communications. :confused:

I will say a little prayer for the Scrambler to arrive in this batch!!:p

Derek is sad
It's driving him mad
He wants to sit on
His Scrambler icon
But he ain't got a chance
If it's on the water in France!
So please get DG to phone him
And say hey Mr Blackie it's Scrambler Day !!

Well I got hold of Blair at DG today. There are 2 Classics in this consignment and my bike isn't one of them :(
It seems that I am no. 4 on their list for a Classic so I'll have to wait for the next consignment which he hopes will be before the end of the month. :rolleyes:

Not a sausage, I was just reading your last post and did wonder.
Noticed you said 'You got a hold of Blair' rather than Blair got a hold of you.
I did say to my wife a phone call would be nice. I bet they won't be long asking for payment when the time comes though.
Indeed. He did apologise for not having called me back, despite having half of Thursday, and all of Friday and Saturday to do so. I've never really dealt with their sales before and now see the relevance of your earlier point about communication not being their strong point.
Harry in the parts dept. on the other hand is great to deal with and has only let me down once when he forgot to post something.

Aye, I've a lot of time for Harry. Mind, he's getting on a bit too. I like Blair too but he has miscalled me to people he didn't know I knew after I bought two Diavels but not from him. They were asked to supply but couldn't give me them on the same day. One one month and the other next month. No good as they were 25th gifts to ourselves.
Also when I spoke to Martin about buying, his first words when he realised it was two I wanted was "we don't discount" it just ruined the buzz. They cost what they cost and I never haggle.

So disappointing Derek!
Fingers crossed next delivery is real soon!!

Must be the same school of thought as my dealer. Oh so busy but forgot really maybe not !
