The 308,000 is worldwide, the 250,000 are in the US. Why it's being reported two ways, I have no idea, but that's the breakdown I read.


oh ok, i understand now.... too bad this happened, thats alot of people adversely effected.... sad situation indeed.....

oh ok, i understand now.... of the 308,000 bike effected by the recall, 250,000 need to be fixed before they can be trailered to sturgis next year. all makes sense now.



IBFTL !!!!!!

Did I log on the VR???

BTW, how many miles do you have on your C50? What year?

I have 32,125 on my 2009 despite three hand surgeries on the throttle hand.

So it's safe to say we all ride here.

Lets leave the VR garbage over there, it's much nicer over here without it.

It's not what you ride, or what's on the odometer.

The point is, I did not find this link on my own. I received emails from my mom and two coworkers who were concerned.

To all others who are concerned...all of the brakes on all of my 'cycles and cages are working great! :lol:

That's harsh, man. Everybody who's been there knows you don't need brakes to ride to Sturgis!

ok true ..... but it was just in fun.... surely an open minded person could see the humor i intended..... i mean, right? one should be able to see the funny part..... i guess.... perhaps not.
