Default I thought Honda was THE "motor company"

I wonder what happened, somebody forget to add oil?

Dammit, if they were damaged during load testing, how well will they hold up on the street under owner abuse? I bet load testing isn't as strenuous as some rider doing a burnout!

Maybe someone forgot to add coolant. They never had to do that before.

I think it had more to do with after a person takes the $10K vaseline tax they dont want it to blow up the same week. Everyone Ive seen has been marked to at least $25k on the Stealers floor.

Harley-Davidson forgot to say "This motorcycle is a showpiece and is not meant to be ridden" ha ha!

I'm not even going to comment on this one. I'll leave it at that.

What three things do a Harley and a dog have in common?



1. They like to shake themselves dry.

2. They mark their territory everywhere they go.

3. They both like to ride in the back of pick up trucks.



Harley guys take heart, your V-Rod engine will never wear out riding to Daytona or Sturgis in the back of the pick-up. Don't worry about it, you'll look damn cool standing next to it.



Don't worry be happy,

Dave

I think you guys should ask them (HD) about starting a recall on the twin cam 88 bearing problem, maybe you can get an answer out of their corporate arrogant big shots. About that hey?

To be fair they are owning up to their mistake, and are willing to fix it.
