So.....you posted a news article without comment you have nothing so say about it?
OK I'll start then the guy has a ton of money and is pissed off.
Sorry I apologize.
Haven't had time to devote to writing good posts so I am trying to keep what I say to a minimum. I really don't write well.
The other day some folks here were talking about the new Rushmore line from HD. I didn't post because what I had to say was negative and there is enough negativity in the world already. When I saw this I remembered those posts.
I looked at a Rushmore briefly just before buying my X bike.
Antifreeze cooling the heads on a TC just seemed to be asking for trouble and I was pretty certain that new owners would get stuck for the bill for a half finished project as has often happened with anything HD has released in the past. The owners of the CVO 110's didn't work so well when they were new.
Most owners rode from dealer to dealer having the cylinders and head gaskets replaced. The design was defective because the company cheeped out during production of the cylinders. The exceptions to the unfinished bikes were the EVO sportster and the VRod. They actually worked not too badly out of the box.
I bashed HD when I first came here a couple of times and have been trying to hold my tongue since.
But this class action law suit is one of at least 3 now being fought by HD. One case has been in court since 2003. I think if HD spent less on lawyers and just a little more on implementing the wishes of their engineers in their production bikes they would have a wonderful product to reward their loyal followers with. That does not seem to be the Harley way unfortunately.
I find the whole thing pretty disgusting and also very discouraging.
