I bought the brake pads from an eBay store. I have noticed no 'funny business' with my account so far. I paid with a money order.

I just got two emails from eBay - they are from the guy from whom I bought the wheel bearings.

The first was a reminder that he had not received payment - email date yesterday. The other was a thank-you and that he received payment today.

I checked my records, I mailed his payment last Wednesday by 5:00pm, so I find it hard to believe it took 6 days to go to Michigan. wtf

I don't know when the bearings are going in the mail (maybe 2 days), so it doesn't look like I'll have the bike on the road again for further trials by week's end (the 4th).

Purportedly the bearings got in the mail today.

It's a race now to see if they get here from MI by Friday !

Tuesday, the same day this guy's fooling around, the fellow from IA (that's Iowa) tells me he got my money order and
the next day he informs me he got my brake pads in the mail Wednesday.

Must have better mail service between here and IA than MI.

I mailed the money orders almost 3 days apart. go figure

Pads came in the mail today from Iowa. That was quick turn around time; 6 days from sending mo to receiving of package.

Bearings did not come; Saturday is the 4th. It's been 9+ days and counting.

Wheel bearings finally arrived today, but almost falling out of its mail package - what a jerk this guy has been to me.

However, it was a great deal on both bearing sets for the front and rear. I installed the rears two Tuesdays ago, and rode all over the place last Sunday - it was my first serious test run of the bike.

I am pleased to report these rear wheel bearings and front brake pads have been working flawlessly over the past few weeks since my bike has been "up".

However, both front and rear brakes are squealing a tad, so I may have to adhere the pads to the pistons with stuff like they do with cars.

The sound is annoying a bit, but at least I know my brakes are working.

A fellow on eBay who was selling a lot of Benelli tanks every week is no longer to be found.
