    How/why did I get bumped to the next batch? Now, I'm #1 on the batch that has not even started the build process... WTF...?

    Didn't you just order yours in late May? I'm the last one in the prior batch and ordered back in January. So, you do have to wait a little. Some of the orders (international) are multiple ones so they don't correspond one for one. Have patience grasshopper. :D

    No one was bumped, Mac. It's close to what kimokk said. I just hadn't placed the dotted line between the 30 piece batches.

    Mine got shipped. I can't wait... well, yes, I can. I've waited this long.

    I hope it gets here in WA before Friday. I want to install it before I ride down to the BMW rally in Salem Friday Morning...

    :happay

    So, it's gonna be hovering around 100 this weekend. Is that 'really hot' and mean I choose the -10 offset?

    It was waiting for me when I got home yesterday! It took a whole 3 minutes to install. Yep, you can definitely feel it in the seat of your pants, and, although it was around 90 degrees, lugging around in 5th gear produced no knock/ping. Woohoo!

    I really appreciate your generosity, at least that's what I'm calling it. You folks are aces.

    Speaking of updates, yes I'm just tonight finishing up assembling the 'additional six pieces' added to the six pieces that didn't ship from the last batch. The six pieces were added to make 12 total, which is the minimum batch size for epoxy without wasting half of it.

    I love the smell of epoxy curing at 3:30 in the morning... :D

    I know this was talked about before but after installing mine and putting approx. 200 miles with all kind of riding (and perhaps a little more aggressave) because how good my bike runs I noticed my MPG went up from a average of 42.7 to 45.2

    Very happy, very impressed :D

    I've just signed the receipt and opened the envelope, pulled out the little box and I'm looking at the device, waiting for the time of placing it on my bike.

    Once installed, I'll report my opinion from oversea.

    Well, some impressions after a 550 km tour: my Adv2011 runs smoothly, takes the revs faster, and now I'm able to drive in 6th gear at a speed of 50 km/h (more or less 35mph) with a sort of ease, like the IICeAir added a couple of cylinders to my bike, and I' don't want to say that running at or slightly below 1750rpm is my preferred way to drive, but now I can cross limit zones with no problems.
    It is possible also that my bike drinks a half a liter less every hundred kilometers, but I cannot state this for sure. For sure, I'm waiting the Cool!
    Ah, one more: installing it requires more time to choose where to place and how the Air, because of the lack of an appropriate space in the frame, than the time needed to unscrew the six screws and unplug the sensor and set again everything.
    My best compliments, Poolside, and thanks for the time you devoted to develop that idea.

    Hello,
    I'd like to buy the IICE-Air (and IICE-Cool if available?) Please let me know how I can place my order, thanks.
