You are the man !! Mine arived today, very phyched. Thanks to you for arranging this, very appreciateive ! Ever thought of doing this for the "Magnetic Drain Plug" . I don't remember for sure, but seems like when I tried to purchase one of them from Zip Ty Racing, there was a $25 minimum for their orders, maybe not anymore, havn't tried in awhile.
Hey, Take care!

What do we order next??
Factory Connection, just down the road from me, sells rubber mounted, replacement triple clamps. I wonder if I could scam a deal...???
I have also thought of CUSTOM ThumperTalk jackets in DRZ Yellow, Yamaha Blue, Honda Racing Red, KTooM Pumpkin (Wearguard or Land's End), maybe custom (long sleeve?) tee's from Moto-Tees??
Any thoughts ANYONE??
Want me to check it out???

Tell me about it. My Costco bill for October arrived 3 weeks after it was due. I called them and they took care of the late charge and interest since I always pay in full and on time.
Looks like my package should be coming soon to New Mexico. Maybe one day it'll be a nice blue jacket.

As for what else we might be able to get a deal on, well, what are common themes here?
Bars & Triple Clamps (and grips)...
Seat covers and tanks...
Tools (t-bars, spoke wrenches, cable oilers...
We all use tyres, chains & sprockets on a regular basis, but I don't know if I could save a heap on tyres after postage...
I think custom stuff... like jackets, badges, stickers, jerseys etc would be good sellers... Maybe cloth and Iron-on patches so we could all customise our Camelbacks and bumbags (fanny packs)...
Perhaps if any of us know someone at any of the suppliers, we could get together a list of places that will give a discount for ThumperTalk Members... e.g. Mention Thumpertalk and your member number, and get 10-15% off or whatever they can offer, free shipping etc. It would be good for these suppliers to know that their products and their company names are circulating around here and 6,000+ potential customers is not to be sneezed at... It would be nice if something could be done in the future so that the owners of TT can get into some sort of partnering arrangement with suppliers to actually make it pay for them as well, because it is privately funded at the moment. If big companies get lots of business from TT members, then that makes it so much easier to know that their sponsorship of this site is going to reap rewards for them.
