    What the hell HD, honor the warranty!

    Harley, you must know there's at least one or more American Motorcycle manufacturers in America. This guy's been very loyal to your brand! sheesh!

    Nice find...thanks

    But I have to disagree.

    "The issue isn't that the flags are heavy, but they provide terrific drag on the engine and the transmission, especially when the bike is at highway speeds," said Harley spokeswoman Maripat Blankenheim.

    Riding at parade speeds would not likely have the same effect on the engine and transmission, according to Blankenheim.
    Evenrude, Yamaha, Honda all have warnings on their boat motors about high speed and flags. It is a huge issue and they have a point.

    It is also established in civil law, that a manufacturer does not have to disclaim everything, as there is no way to legislate stupidity, like the McDonald's coffee cup. If they have had many such issues, then maybe.

    The guy has logged 15,000 miles on that trike with those flags flying at what have to be some great speeds - I would not hold back EVER on a bike like that! In fact I'm amazed he'd want them flying at speed....I'd want the ride.

    They did honor the warrenty but declined the claim made.
    Most warrenties have proper use clauses in them. so that any modifications that you make will not be covered by the warrenty.

    This guy chose to ride the motorcycle with extras that caused early damage to the motorcycle that it otherwise would not have incurred under normal use.
    While i have seen companies deny claims for stupid reasons this one is not.

    Of course you had to come up with "boat motors" or as I like to call them "engines"

    How many boats have gears? like a motorcycle does? what about pulling water skiers and tubers?
