Re: Orders from Italy - how long did you wait?
This is just how it is.* As long as Italian companies have the monopoly on the parts people want, and people continue to buy them, you can do nothing.* When I was at the Ducati factory back in 2001 I asked them "why does it take soo long?",...* "because" was the answer I got... Nice.
And it's not just bike stuff either.* I ordered a case of Grappa from a distiller in Bassano IT, 2 months ago and I still haven't got it.
I guess it's because they all take naps in the afternoons.
