      they ruined the handling the FXR is touted for by raking the headtube and putting on those dumb ass struts

      If I wanted a bike for corners...I would have kept the Ducati. It is just more a hot rod..it is noisy and uncomfortable and noisy..I wouldnt expect much from it in the performance end of things. Besides I still got other bikes. I have yet to see that movie...soon...soon

      The first service on these things is at 1k miles. It's under warranty, it was a three year old bike with barely any miles on it. Might as well have them do the first in case it was built on a Friday.

      Gave them a call yesterday and it's $430-460 OMGWTF.

      I realize it's a full 10k interval service, but damn. Since I have done all my own services before this is hard to swallow. Maybe it's normal, I don't know. They better not miss anything.

      I'm already anxious about someone else working on it. I'm gong to go over all the critical fasteners afterwards and check their work now. Oh god.... I've become one of those customers.

      I just called them and told them that the "detachables" rack hardware and sissy bar they installed when I bought the bike it wasn't very detachable.

      It should be a press of a button and a twist of a rotary latch to remove, and a twist of the latch to install. The lateral alignment is off between the latch and the docking point and it takes a lot of cursing, sweating and effort to get it on/off. I wrestled to remove it as soon as I got home to install the pad, so I know it was a struggle to get on.

      The same system on the old bike needed some tweaking before the rack came on/off easily. Even if it's a 1/8" out of alignment it just won't latch. I had to bend the rack a little bit with a ratchet strap to make it line up. I installed it, I made it work. Nothing's perfect.

      The service guy sounded confused about it, and after explaining it again, he still didn't understand what I was requesting... "You guys installed it.. I'll inspect it when I pick it up, call me if you have any questions."

      I am definitely turning into one of those customers, and I hate it.

      Talked to the service guy when he called to say the bike was ready. Asked him about the sissy bar. I had to explain it to him again.

      He just called me to say his tech couldn't even remove it, and they straightened it out for me.

      Told you.
