The story continues…

So, Daniela told me that the service package was more or less dead in the water for this year. A guy I’ve talked to a bit on ThumperTalk had just gotten all signed up for KTM service and a bike rental for Erzberg this year, he provided me with a different contact person at KTM. I shot off an email to him, and here is what I have been told:

hi brandon, it seems to 90% that we can not offer a race service for romaniacs this year, final decission is not done, but it looks not good, ok? sorry

Mit freundlichen Grüssen / Best regards

And then later, that same day:

hi brandon, now it looks much better, give me some days and i will let you know, ok?

Then, I got a similar message from Daniela Leidl:

Hello Brandon,

at the moment it looks like we offer our race service at the Romaniacs 2011,
in few days – now I write the last time J – I will send you our final informations.

Bye,
Daniela

So, Things do look a little better on the service package front. Hopefully it pans out. I would much rather go with KTM’s deal than somebody else. But I’ll do what I have to do!

I have also sent an email off to KTM USA’s customer service people inquiring about bike rentals. Hopefully there will be good news on that score!
