Geez, Richie, did you tick off Marie Laveau the last time you were in New Orleans?

I agree with change the date of the sale, i.e. the start date/mileage of the warranty.

Ride often. Ride far. Ride safe and do much more of both.
Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach him how to surf the GWOF and he won't bother you for weeks, maybe months
I'll be waitin' for you at the end of the road.
If everything had gone as planned, it would not have been an adventure.

Crikey. That new tire valve has been a bugger hasn't it?!
I doubt they'll adjust the date, but certainly should give you a loaner bike..

Here's the latest update. They took apart the whole right side of the engine, we need new valves, timing chain, head, sprocket, tensioner etc., They sent the request/pictures, etc to Honda yesterday, but too late for an answer. I'm still waiting to hear the answer today. If they have the parts, they'll overnight, and we can get the bike fixed. BUT, why would they stock those kind of parts for an engine that NEVER has a problem. If the parts are not in stock, then . . . .

Has the dealership got a demo bike you can ride in the meantime? That would only be fair in my line of thinking. I don't see any reason why they couldn't re-date the sale date either unless it causes an issue with the warranty claim and that could be.

grab all the kicks you can baby, you only make this scene once!

I just heard from the owner of the dealership. They will, indeed, lend me a bike. I can pick it up this afternoon. No timeline on the repair of mine yet. We still don't know if the parts are available. Now i feel a little better.

Better yet, they're saying the loaner will be a 2018 6 speed. SWEET! I was expecting something they took in as a trade!

Now you’re screwed......you’ll be trading in the ‘17 for the ‘18 now.....


But that kinda screwing would be a good thing!

Wow, this 2018 is a pretty damn awesome bike. It had 2 miles on it when I picked it up yesterday. Now they can keep my 2017 as long as they want. I'm in no hurry to give this one back.

In the meantime, we still don't have an answer from Honda as to whether they have the parts we need for the repair in stock. Hopefully hear this morning.

Oh Oh Richie!! I hope you have great restraint. If you're tempted, take 2 aspirins and go lie down...it may pass. Let us know what you think of the 18.
Ride safe,
Strat

Thanks, Stratman. that helped. I still love the 2017. And will all the stuff I have attached to it, I really can't see myself going to the 2018. It sure is tempting, it's got some nice beeps and whistles, but by the time I add all the extras, like road pegs, armrests, backrest, Mount for CB (I don't like the Honda one) and mount for phone, Centramatic wheel balancers, Trailer Hitch, Air wings, Trunk rack, it'll cost me at least one lung and kidney. And that's if the stuff is even available for the 2018 yet.

No, I'm good with my 2017, once they get it fixed. Maybe in a few years, once they iron out the bugs, and the aftermarket people design all the accessories, and I hit that LOTTERY, . . . . .
