Man, Suzuki's saddlebag incentive to buy a leftover Wee, could be borderline fraud.
I went to my dealer to see what's the delay. I bought my Wee Feb. 1 or so, and hadn't heard zip from the dealer or Mama Suzuki.
The dealership was great, they phoned Mama and after being passed around, were told to speak to the District Sales Manager. The salesperson rung him up and got a bunch of "blah, blah, blah."
I left with exactly what I entered the dealer with, except knowing that it's not any fault of my dealer, WTH-over.

Still waiting on mine too. They told me mid April a couple of weeks ago. I will call them next week and see what the status is.

Been waiting 8 weeks here.... I am actually not so mad about the delay as I am about the dealer won't even answer me back if they have gotten them in or not unless I really really push to find out. I only call every couple of weeks, it is not like I have been bugging them too much about it or anything.

Congratulations!

On your purchase of a Suzuki Virtual Motorcycle...

Great on gas, cheap to maintain, photoshop as many farkles as you wish....
:thumbup:

I am not familiar with the promotion you refer to, but I have never bought a bike not physically in the showroom....

Sorry to hear you are not riding yet, hope that changes soon

It was a promotion for a reduced price on the Suzuki Saddlebags when you purchase the 2011 V-Strom. The saddlebags & 0% APR were two of the selling points for me.

I called the dealer today to find out if he had heard anything from Suzuki yet on the saddle bags. He said he emailed the rep this morning and hasn't heard back from them yet. I called Suzuki USA today and they told me they are supposed to releasing from the warehouses the 3rd week of April. Well it's the 3rd week of April so hopefully it will be any time now.

I bought my bike on 3/2/12, got the bags, no side racks. Asked the dealer today and they had no new information. Annoying.

You guys are lucky just to be able to buy them from the dealer. My dealer wanted to charge me $400-600 to be able to buy them. HE claimed that it comes out of their pocket. I bought Givi's and couldnt be happier

I got my left over o11 from a dealer in St Charles, MO. and the bags arrived in about 2-3 weeks, the purchase date was 3-12-12. I understand how you guys feel, I was starting to feel the same way. They didn't notify me when they came in, I was out in the area and just dropped by to check. So the bags are out there somewhere, don't understand why some get them and some don't.

Blame it on the Nuke meltdown/Tsunami in Japan.

Sounds more like they are in no hurry due to the lack of incentive ( $$$$$ ). !!!!!

I got a call from the dealer today. He told that he heard back from the Suzuki rep today. According to the rep the hardware is in but not the bags yet. I called Suzuki America last week and they told me that the bags would be releasing from warehouses the third week of April. The dealer now tells me it's going to be another 2 or 3 weeks yet.

Ugh.. I'm at 9 weeks, I had to call the dealer back 2 more times, they wouldn't call back or tell me anything.
Finally spoke to the parts guy he has one box in for me, and he checked the tracking/estimated shipping and it looking like middle of May for those, One item still shows TBD, so no idea on that one whatever it is.

I'll call them back in 3 weeks and see whats new

Being able to buy something you can't get delivered isn't exactly what I call lucky. I'd say more like pretty lame.

GSX1250 still waiting too

Bags were ordered in February... Picked up bike in early March, along with the mounting hardware. I rushed home, installed the hardware so the bike would be all set... Well, it's still all set, I'm riding around with a bunch of naked metalwork hanging off the back of the bike. Dealer sez one of my bags is scheduled for delivery 5/22, and the other is To Be Determined! The last time I spoke w/the dealer, it was to be 4/30; the time before that, 4/15. C'mon Suzuki, they're just Givi Monokeys with a logo on 'em. How long can this take??

Sorry to invade a VStrom forum with this, but it doesn't seem to be a big topic on the Bandit forums (some of whom seem to think that my bike's not really a Bandit, either...)

What is the phone number for Suzuki USA?

Dealer called Wednesday, picked them up Friday.

I didn't know they came with a Top Case too :jawdrop: :) Easy install in about an hour.

Called the dealer when I got home from work today and they said my bags were in. Going to make the trip Saturday to get them since it's almost an hours drive from where I live. Made sure he checked to make sure all parts were in and correct before I made the trip. He says everything is there and correct.
