If I were not so tech. challenged I would put a pic. Does any one else have one of these bikes? If so what if any problems have you had? If not and you may be considering a purchase I would say stay away from this bike. My father has an 04 and has had nothing but problems. Only good thing is a 5 year warranty has covered the 4 months of shop time. Unfortunately the GA lemon law does not cover Motorcycles. Feel free to PM me with/for any info!

The most important thing that I have learned in this adventure with my fathers bike.....If at all possible buy your next motorcycle in Ohio. Ohio has the best lemon law by far I have read. In accordance with this my father could receive a new motorcycle or repayment of the purchase price plus any interest he has paid, and his legal fees and court costs. So buyer beware when it comes to cycles. A side note you know them mondo RV's costing as much as a couple hundred thousand dollars....dont buy one in Pennsylvania, they have no protection under the lemon law either.

Thanks for the concern DS this has been a long journey for us. It is so sad because Yamaha has a good product line just not this top end bike. They have spent almost double the cost of the bike in warranty parts and labor costs for the repairs that have not worked. I don't get it.

When i went from owning my own pawn shop to not having a job and no income, I had to sell my Harley Fatboy to pay rent...I'm not crying about it because you never know what life is going to throw at you. Thankfully I have landed a great career and I am purchasing a 2004 Honda Shadow (not a Honda DEATH SHADOW). This bike is fully loaded with sissy bar, saddle bags, windshield and LOUD pipes. It has too many extras to name. Luckily I am buying it from a coworker that is allowing me to pay it off. Total price will be $5000...it's no steal but not having to pay interest more than makes up for the cost. No, it is not a Harley and I'm sure one day I will be able to afford one again, but there is nothing like having a motorcycle to get rid of stress. I will post a pic as soon as I figure out how to post it. DS...one day you'll get one when the time is right.
To all my fellow bikers out there...Yes, you live to ride and ride to live, but ride safe and responsibly...a lot of ppl out there don't even know we're on the road and they think they own it. Arrive alive so I can kill you in the game...lol
