Well, the day has finally come where I’m due to collect my new S1000XR Sport SE in M Sport colours..........and it’s horrendous weather outside. 😡😡

Not sure what the hell to do  :435: :005:

Collect it on another day !!

Whats the point of getting it filthy and risking a spill on the ice/snow.

Get them to deliver it, if they cannot get there then, there is no way are you going to get it back.   :190: :190: :190: :190:

I seriously doubt they will want to deliver it if asked to hang on to it for a week.

Bad weather has just begun where I am and it's pretty bad.

The worse is yet to come so would advise not to risk it. Just wait till next week  :016:

All good. Spoke to them (Wollaston) and I’m popping over to go through handover, but they will deliver. I’m only 30 mins so no worries. 👍

Mine was ready for collection this time last year.  The weather wasn't as bad as this, but I got Lind Welwyn to deliver it.
(The van they used had a lift on it, so no worries on loading/unloading)
