This is a story that I want to end

Is this Groundhog Day or just a bad dream? I ordered my Garmin Cricket Tail Faring May 25, 2009. I have received it twice: 08/04 & 09/21. Both times, regrettably with damage. On finding the damage today, I am of the mind, that I can NOT return the fairing for repair. Please note, there are fewer damaged locations and less severe damage this time.

In my correspondence with the owner of Goblin Motors, he has asked that I return it [again] for repair. I want this story to end today. I accept the damage and will just live with a fairing with boo boos. It is not what I wanted; but it is what it is, and it is time to move on.

The comments posted to this article give details on many points based on email exchanges between Mr. Bales and myself. There are also responses to the comments of others.

Thanks for your indulgence.

I was really looking forward to a good news story today. The packing looks adequate, although i question the support of the front of the fairing. Please tell me what you think.
