This will get Harley-Davidson Open link in a new window into trouble, especially in the USA. A longtime Harley-Davidson aficionado, Dave Zien from Chippewa Falls (Wisconsin), has been riding Harley for almost as long as the manufacturer exists. His 1991 Harley is even in the Harley-Davidson Hall of Fame museum for having ridden over a million miles. To top things off, Dave is a former state senator, so not someone you want to piss off (he's also a former Marine, so a double do-not-piss-off).

But that is exactly what Harley has done. Dave's new 2014 Harley-Davidson's clutch failed on a recent trip to Dallas. Since the bike is new, Dave was looking at Harley to obviously repair their defect. And since the bike is new, at Harley's cost. That's what a warranty is all about.

But Harley-Davidson is not going to pay up. The reason? Because Dave rides with several flags on his motorcycle, in this case, he's got SEVEN flags. Harley said that the bike (it's a trike) was not designed to handle the speed with all the wind resistance. Also the flag mounts are not from Harley-Davidson which adds to the warranty voiding.

Dave Zien Flagged Harley

So Harley is not paying up. And now you've got many motorcycle riders who are pissed off. They want to fly their flags, but it's obvious that their bikes are no longer built to handle them. Maybe they should talk to Indian....
