    Ours left on the 25th. Clicking the + a couple of times opens up the full info screen but there's never anything more than the 'picked up on the 25th' detail. I phoned Greyhound today and the lady said that our location meant that the tires went to Toronto and would be dispatched from there to our home address, but she didn't know when.

    Sounds like they're trying different shippers to see which one fits best. Give them feedback, I did after they sent mine by oops.

    Good idea, but what service goes by the acronym "oops"?

    What lousy service.

    The tires have not arrived and their "Tracking" page still hasn't changed so it really isn't much of a tracking page at all.

    When to slap on the new tires... juuust a little more of a wait I think IOT ensure I have some time breaking them in but not wearing them out before Roaming. The 690 is still waiting on a new brake pedal and as of yesterday's arrival, the addition of the new GPS :clap. I'd hoped the brake pedal would be here before the weekend :cry. I'll just have to use the time to add the adv-spec side case covers on, wire in the GPS and put a new horn on to replace the second drowned horn. Really need to relocate the horn, maybe to the top of my helmet. :lol3
