Speaking of Armor Bodies...been having some negative experiences with the set of bodywork I ordered from MotoXP Ricambi (Italy) for the R3. Long story short, it's been almost 8 weeks, and I still don't have it, and they've been constantly lying and BS-ing about when they'll ship. I wanted to go with Armor Bodies but the only reason I didn't is they don't make a superbike tail for the R3 and I really didn't want to use the stock seat, because I want to reduce as much weight as I can as well as raise the seat height.
Anyway, fast forward to yesterday, I decided to send an email to Woodcraft using the "contact us" feature on their website, asking them if they plan on making a superbike tail for the R3 anytime in the future. First thing in the morning, at like 7:00 am, I get a reply back from Eric Wood himself with a thorough answer to my question (not just a "yes" or "no").
I shouldn't rave about them since I'm sponsored by a competitor, but damn! There's a reason so many people choose Woodcraft. Can't deny their excellent customer service. Anyway, Eric said the superbike tail is in the plans and he expects to be able to offer that mid-late summer. So when I crash the shit out of my R3 and it needs new bodywork, I won't be bothering to replace it with shit that takes 2 months to arrive from Italy. I'll be going the Armor Bodies route!
