I hear you! I've been a dual source rider for over 20 years, and I keep telling myself why I put up
with all the problems with my HD's! I just put my bikes down for the winter, which includes an oil change.
I change the oil/primary/transmission in the HD, and do the same in the Goldwing. It's a WAPITA on the HD
and sooooo simple on the Honda! I live in Harley country, and have a few friends that work at the motor
plant, and the stories they tell me about all the internal problems, scare the chit out of me!!
I LOVE MY HARLEY but I got to tell you the company is ALL about MONEY for stock holders and they really
don't care about the owners. Believe what you want..........live with the problems..... I really don't think
it will get better. I also believe the ESP is getting real tired of the motor company, and I believe the current
pricing on the ESP will take a big hit in the near future.
Say what you want about the new GW model, smart off about the styling, but look at all the other
manufactures NEW IMPROVED models, and tell me what's really new & improved about our HD's!
Again, please don't give me chit about my opinion because no matter what you say, it's the truth!
Harley NEED to improve there QUALITY, and reliability!!!!!
