    The Scout floorboards that were due to be delivered on October 15th... the ones that got pushed to November 30th... have now been pushed to January 13th? Seriously? Does anybody believe they can actually deliver them then?

    Why can't they deliver something they've had for the catalog shoot last summer? This is not how Americans do things. In WWII we went from zero to producing a B-17 bomber every single hour. These people can't make something as simple as floorboards in 4 months? Maybe they should have Apple make them?

    I'd be willing to bet that upper management has no clue how incompetent the parts supply chain is? They're about to, as I'm writing a letter to corporate. My suggestion: quit wasting money on advertising, quit making commercials, and fire some people. Find somebody who knows how to run a supply chain.

    It'd be one thing if this was an isolated incident, but it's not. They have a reputation for not being able to deliver accessories. There are people out there waiting for drag bars and who knows what else. People who bought motorcycles and added accessories have waited 6 months to get things that they financed and have been making payments on. This is NOT how you run a company. Time for upper management to make some heads roll downhill...

    I was glad to see they put the right part number on their website.

    Ditto! He's right! The boy ain't lying! I know cos I was waiting right there with him! I ordered the bike in the first week of Sept 2014 but never got it until the end of Feb 2015. And as for the accessories that were supposed to be on it? The last pieces I cancelled in Dec 2015. So that was 16 months waiting for parts I NEVER got! There was a bright side to all that. I bought the same parts off people on the forum ( from @RBinTEX too I think) brand new and still in the boxes for a damn sight less. So cheer up Buddy, that dark cloud could have a silver lining,....Alpal

    I know, I read all those posts. That's what makes this unacceptable... they haven't fixed the problem two years later...

    No third party ones look as good. These are scalloped around the mount and fit a lot closer to the bike. The others don't...

    Yeah but if you can't get em then whats the point? It sucks but screw em. Hell at this point I'd wonder about the quality of the ones that will come in.

    That would pose a problem. Can you get a refund?
