Interesting. We just had a couple of guys here telling us how superior Yamahas are in every way.

I doubt though that I'd spend 2500 fixing a bike that locks it's rear wheel up.

Interesting, are you trying to compile more cases of this exact failure for legal reasons? Are you and the others the first owners?

I'd say wire that sucker up with a 105mm HE shell and wheel it into the showroom of the Yamaha place where you bought it. Get across the street with a cell phone detenator and look out for flying VStar 1100 parts as they rain down from above.

Sometimes you have to make your own justice.

I think you get to go to Paradise with 18 virgins or something if you do.
