Was just down at my Indy getting a dash gasket that had blowed out and he was putting new rear brakes on a Tri-Glide that wore out when they drove off with the emergency brake on. He say's he's had several incidents of this lately.

Absolutely! The early Tri-glides didn't have a BREAK light on the dash, and how many motorcyclists are used to parking breaks. Did a 'premature' break job on the '09 and '11. After that, rarely used the parking break. On her '14 Tri-Glide and my '15 Freewheeler there is a HUGE red light that warns you.

On the Harley Trike boards there is constant bitching about early break failure. NO ONE will admit that is what they did.

Oops, never could spell worth a shit. Windows needs to come up with another software that understands word usage, not just spelling.

MS Word not only spell checks, but checks grammar too.
Waiting on a browser that does that...
