I apologize almighty Diamond for upsetting you. Between having to pay a fortune to fly home, and having to work, I am SO sorry I did not reply quicker.
TO respond, the bike has been to several dealers. 2 where I live have already closed, and now I have to ride close to an hr to the nearest dealer. The best one I have ever been to was in Bowling Green KY, who fixed the baffle problem. As for that, I know its just a screw. That screw somehow kept coming off. I have not personally worked on the bike. I have been to about 4 dealers where I live, 2 are closed and gone. The gas leak has been looked at by 2 dealers since the incident, the last asked me to bring it back in. They were actually cool.
As for the stupid commitment comment, I have defended victory and even tried to influence others to step outside the box and test ride one. But when it spends so much time in the shop, what choice do I have? When you have to hope it works when you want a ride... cmon. I appreciate the guys suggestion of just going to a Vision, it may just be I got a bad one. They already told me an appraiser could look at it when I bring it in.
I was venting the other day and furious about Victory lying to me before. The last time I looked, it didn't say it has to be a positive forum?
