Both?

Evil for giving "an obviously crappy product with an inflated price" (even though competitor prices have now equaled and surpassed HD pricing) to their loyal consumers?

And stupid for ignoring the problem for so long unlike honest companies like Honda and BMW *cough*wink*nudge*?

Typical Capitalist scum, foisting an unreliable product on the honest and hardworking prolitariat whose only hope in life is to have a motorcycle to ride to the Peoples Tractor Factory so that the children can use the horse to plant Beets? Then depriving that man of his motorcycle so that they can repair it free, wash it and give it back!!!!? Despicable?

This is indeed an evil capitalist plot. My pal Mike had to take his new FLHTCUQWERTY in for the recall. While we were there he bought about $200 in new accessories.

We also had a look at a new '09 HD Trike they just got in. I could be wrong, but that sure looks like a live axle under the "trunk" to me! Is that the best they can do?

Those Damned Motor Company Engineers? How dare they develop the rear-supension and driveline in merely the same way as Victory/Lehman or some backyard-psuedo-hack Wrench?

Asuming they didnt ignore it for too long? Dont you think its respectable that their doing it before someone gets hurt? At least owning up to the responsiblity of the mistake?

You really don't understand us, do you MOKE?

On the plus side, your typing and grammar is slightly better than the eye-bleeding style you've used in the past?

Carry on?

I hope the Mokester sticks around? He brings a sense of wonder and excitement about motorcycling that has been missing here for so long?
Really?
