    That`s the kind of feeling that the "wrong kind of customers" are given at snobbish places.

    As far as 1%`s, I lock them up from time to time.

    I care about HD as much as they have proven to me I matter to them, zero, nada, nothing...

    Harley don`t pay my bills, I buy something that cost as much as a new HD, I expect a certain standard, when that don`t happen watch out!

    Are you on the Harley forum? If not I would get on there and share your experience with other HD owners and prospective buyers. Name names and let them know the kind of crap you are going through. Maybe HD monitors the forum and you can get their attention that way.

    I will, I`m just waiting to see the end result of this as if there is a (God forbid), third time of damage or something else wrong, the stories not over...

    Heh heh...these days both types of 1% might get locked up from time to time!

    Heh heh#2, gee a sensible perspective!

    They delivered the bike today, damaged again (number 3).

    As you have seen, this bunch of monkeys will NEVER be able to do the normal kind of job others are doing all the time.. I am so sorry you have had to deal with this..
    Find another HD Dealer, cut your losses, or live with it..
    Good Luck !

    Man I`m sorry to hear what you and your father going thrue. How is with your insurance on the bike? Maybe they can back you up to take it to another dealership or mechanic? I don`t know if Harley Davidson them self can do anything for you. Have you heard from them yet? A phone call to them may be in place and describe your situation. And even contact your insurance company and see what can come out of it. Is there any other mechanic that is HD aproved in your area that you can contact?

    Either way I hope you find a solution and your father can fully enjoy hos new bike.

    Oh man, so sorry to hear about this...

    Dispatch- What does your dad *really* think about all this? Does he really care or would he like to just ride it and not sweat the cosmetics?

    Just because Yours Truly would jump one way, that doesn`t mean that other people oughta do it, and IMO it`s all about your dad enjoying himself.

    Well, on the 4th try they finally replaced the bars properly with no damage even though they still left the clutch cable clamp off again and was still missing.

    I want to let as many people know about this dealership as I can, I`m just not sure what the best way to do that is...

    Seems like with HD laying off factory workers and sales in a slump at the dealership level...employees would get it right the first time and try to preserve their jobs.

    They probably assume that others are (or should be) as unconcerned with stuff being messed up as they are.. "What`s the big deal...all my stuff is [screwed] up so I bet his new bike will get trashed right away anyhow". It`s like all those new car salesmen, Service Managers, and others who`ve said "So what? All cars have scratches."

    Re: Removing Light Scratches From A Denim Finish?

    What has me most disheartened is that even though I reached out to the corporate office of Harley Davidson, they showed no concern or provided me with any help what so ever, as far as I`m concerned they are no better than the worthless dealership we bought them from.

    I`m so deterred by this, even though I`ve not put a single mile on it, I`m contemplating trading it for a new Honda Goldwing.

    Screw Harley Davidson, for good!...

    Would doing this be foolish you think?

    No, it would not be foolish..
    If the Honda Dealer there is better than those losers where you have spent so much of your time already, it would have to be a much better way to go..
    Good luck with this !
    My best to you and your families..
