So I picked up my leftover 08 Saturday and the thing has been flawless up until today. I've put about 300 miles on it since I picked it up. Anyway, I take a little short ride north of where I live in Alabama and cross into Tennessee, about a 20 mile ride, to buy a couple lottery tickets :thumbsup: When I left the lotto place I was cruising along at about 50mph and I saw the tach go straight to 15k and my digital screen went blank and then the bike died. I pulled into a driveway (thank goodness I was near one) and set there and turned the key on and off about 10 times and got nothing. So I get off the bike, put the stand down and turn the key and wooowhooo!...the screen lit up and the bike started. Went down the road about 2 miles and same thing as above happened again. Got off the bike and again screen lit up and the bike started. I thought to myself, "Dang, I know I'm around 230lbs but surely the bike can handle me :lol: " Anyway, this went on about every 2 miles for 20 miles back to the dealership. Turns out, they told me that before I came and picked up the bike they put a new battery in it but "someone" forgot to tighten a battery cable and everytime I sat on the bike and hit a rough spot in the road it would jar the cable loose and when I was off the bike it made a connection. Anyway, longest 20 miles in my 12 years of riding for sure. Guess I could've checked the battery out myself but I let my emotions get the best of me, being a new bike and all and it kept dying :headshake

I've never bought anything from them in the past because of service and pricing. However, since the business has been left to his sons everybody has said that they're trying to do things the right way. They're pricing has been some of the best I've seen and the best at this shop ever. I'm big on doing business with local business owners as long as they're fair and know what they're doing. I bought the bike from them because of the way I was being treated by their staff and not being pushed into or pushed away from buying it. They've made every effort to make sure I'm not disappointed with this situation so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt right now. They know I have 3 sons that are going to want 4wheelers and dirtbikes before too long and I think they care about that...in the past it wouldn't of mattered. So far I'm pleased.
