    Motorcycle enthusiast claims Harley voided warranty over American flag


    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!

    I agree with you. They should honor their warranty unless they have some kind of specific disclaimer in their paperwork. Not worth the bad publicity.

    I knew a guy out in New Mexico that owned a Victory scoot, much nicer, cleaner lines than a HD. I looked sort of like a factory made chopper, but the company also makes nice looking and well performing road bikes too.

    I was going to look and try to see how HD's profits were last year, to see if they could afford to honor his warranty <sarcasm on>

    I kinda like the Honda Goldwings, but read a piece that they're pulling the plug on made in America. Too bad, they don't vibrate like the HD's, they're smooth running.

    Last month, they posted better than anticipated numbers, profit $265 million for the quarter -- up from $224 million a year earlier. Harley has done such a wonderful job of building and protecting its brand that there's Harleys and then there's everybody else. But since they're worried they're losing their customer base, baby boomers, best not to piss them off.

    Hell, they can afford to honor the warranty. All this is going to do is give them a bad rap if the word spreads.

    (7) 3 ft. flags? I would be surprised if he could keep the front wheel on the ground at speed, not to mention the flapping noise. Highway flags are 6 x 9 in. for a reason. The parade flags are meant to be used.... well... obviously at slower speeds.

    Tattered American flags need to be replaced, not admired.

    HD is right to deny him warranty work. His notoriety means nothing in this issue. Sorry, he shouldn't have taken it in with all of those flags mounted up.

    PR wise stupid, stupid move, but, I think there is little doubt the flags do increase the drag on the bike straining the power-train more so than if he didn't fly the flags.

    PR wise they should fix the bike.
    However, I agree when you operate a vehicle outside the specs. your on your own. Flying flags does at high speeds does add more drag.

    Should Ford/Dodge/etc. fix a 1/2 ton truck transmission if you pull a trailer outside the limits? imo, nope. Same with the bike.
