Question Sampson Sport touring

Does anyone have a contact number for Sampson Sport touring or know what city they are in? I didn't find a number on their web site.

I placed an order for a quick disconnect on the 19th via paypal (confirmed payment). Never received the part or an order confirmation from Sampson so I emailed requesting status on the 26th. Not receiving an answer I E-mailed again on the 28th and still no response.

If this is a home business I can understand some delay but this seems unusual. Anyone have experience with this company?

From their on-line order form:

Sampson Sport Touring, PO Box 272, Chloride AZ 86431

Doesn't look like they like to give out their phone number. Here's a post from an FJR Board about their communication skills (or potential lack thereof):

Good luck,

Tom,

I've received good service with all my on-line purchases in the past. Guess you are bound to find a poor vendor now and again. Sounds like Sampson has been less than responsive to a number of others judging by the comments on the FJR site.

I located another vendor with what I need and plan to cancel my order with Sampson but I doubt they will respond. Glad it was only a $30 order.

Not to make fun of your situation and certainly hope you didn't get ripped off, but I doubt if they even have phones in Chloride:

...but I'll bet you could track your culprit down by showing up in the town square Saturday afternoon with a six shooter and yelling
"SAMPSON, you son of a bitch - I'm a' callin' you OUT!"

About a day ride for 'ya.

I think I found one of their previous customers:

Thumbs up

Ron,

Thanks, I really needed some comic relief injected into this frustrating situation. I have a dollar waiting on a dime here. My aux tank installation is ready to go but for the quick disconnect.

I ordered from another vendor and should be on the road a few days.

I suppose you are always in such good humor because you ride on the world's most comfortable motorcycle seat

Thanks again,

Would you mind passing on the information for this other vendor for the cover that you found? I also have had no luck getting a response from Sampson, and they are just a couple hours north of here (I should ride my bike up there and find out first-hand WTH) and we are in desperate need of a new cover. We have had a cover like they have on their site, AND we have that plastic box thing which is rather bulky.
Thanks in advance!

Re: Sampson Sport touring

Folks, we may have a new winner here for replying to a post that will be 7 years old March 31st!

I think I'm going to have to come with a prize and announce a yearly recipient.

Conni14 is now in the running! (but don't feel so all alone, I've done it myself more than a few times)

Re: Sampson Sport touring

When in Chloride, catch Sunday afternoon karaoke at Yesterday's. All of the old locals turn out and some can even sing (kinda). Warm beer, lousy food , slow service, and free "entertainment." (all part of the local ghost town charm). Then head up about 1.5 miles off road to view the rock murals. A bit of rough go up to the paintings, but I've done it on both my R 1200 C and the RT.
