    Let me know, not Mr know. Danged smell cheek.

    I agree with you on most dealers tech's, just not up to my standards. I pull wrenches on all my rides. At 70 and as crippled up as I am I still do my own maintenance. If you would like to pass along one of your overstock on manuals let Mr know what you would need plus shipping, I would be interested. Thanks Glenn

      The Overstock on manuals is not really that. I (at some point, not at first) realized that I was going back and working on other's bikes and found myself wishing I had the older HD manuals. I have a bike lift in my garage, and still have someone else's bike on it several times a season (different people, different bikes). At one time, I thought I'd do bike repairs and tires for them when I retired, sort of an "Unauthorized Harley Mechanic". But I decided against that for 2 reasons. One, rarely charge for work, and if I did it wasn't what it was worth. Secondly, if I charge I could be liable if something went wrong..... even if not my fault. Just not worth the risk.

      The only extra manuals I have are Harley, and I still refer to them because of working on friend's bikes. I only have the one Slingshot manual. If I ever decide to sell the bikes, I'll sell the lift also and would then sell the manuals. Let you know if that happens, but it's not really likely. :)

    Sorry to read this Brother....had similar experience with Ridenow Ocala in Fl. Two years later I'm still finding things they messed up.

      It is what it is, but thanks! Thing is, I have no faith in the workmanship there. I mean, they replaced my swingarm! These are the things I've found, but what about the things I haven't found.... yet? Will they raise their angry heads while I'm in Maggie Valley? There is nothing at this point that would restore my faith in this dealer. They could trade me for a new SLR even up, and I'd just take the trade and go somewhere else. I take too much pride in my work and craftsmanship. I'll make my SS right, and it will cost me some $ to do it. Lesson learned, I'll never be back.

    Goat, please join our local group in Indy on FB. We are "Indy SS riders".
    We do many group rides together and dinners.

      Scootertrash, sorry, I just found this. I did join up just now. This site works well, but I just need to remember to come to my "wall" to look for things here also. Usually I just go straight to the forums, and rarely ever come to my profile. Thanks for the invite!

    It was a typo...32...39... I got the knucklehead part right! Whew, guess I should wait on the beer before I start typing. Thanks for the edit catch!

    Lynn Indiana--where is that in relation to South Bend? Dad family are all in SB.

    • Goats_Hogs -

      Sorry, I just found this post. This forum is nice, but has a few things that are different than most of the forums I've been on. South Bend is in the northern part of the state, North Vernon is in the southern part of the state, and French Lick isn't all you would think! HaHa! Lynn is central North to South, and only 8 miles or so from the Ohio State line. Interstate 70 pretty much splits the state top to bottom, I live 14 miles north of it, straight north of Richmond, Indiana.

      We have had a good deal of rain here in the past week. Between that, the fog in the morning, and working on my mom's place, I've had the SS out only a couple of times. My mom passed away on May 1st, and we've been working on getting her house ready to sell. Mom and dad built it 61 years ago, and that is a long time in one place. We are about to get it cleaned out and move to the garage area and sheds. While I may not have the sheds and garage done in time, I will have the house cleaned out (hopefully this weekend) by the 27th. That is when the new owners will start moving things in. They close on their house Sept 1st, and we hope to close within a week of that.

      Nice to meet you, and if you are ever in the Indiana area, give me a yell and maybe we can sit and break bread somewhere. Wife and I are always up for a meet and greet and eat.... :)
