He now has a brand new engine and rewired bike. Sooooo in his case........good thing

I put a lot of miles on my bikes, and put them through hard riding. also apparently my model bike is going to need some cam something something (i forget at this moment) around the 35,000 mark. since that could be somewhere between christmas and daytona spring bike week, the warranty will pay for itself in the first year.

Harley wouldn't give us anything on the first warranty. After fighting with them they called it a lemon and exchanged it for another one. On the second trike we had to fight them again for the melted wires the dealership just covered the wires with electric tape and took pictures. They said we were the first with that problem. Ya right, we got tired of trying to get something done with all the problems so with about $3,500.00 we fixed the trike ourselves and now it's a fast trike with 36 mi. to the gal. going through the Ozarks mountains. Before the fix we got maybe 15 mi. to the gal and at one time coming back from S.D. we couldn't go over 50 with the throttle all the way, everyone was passing us. I think Harley just didn't know what to do with all their mess of trikes. They were both lemons until we fixed this second ourselves. Now with extended warranty no way would we buy on... less
