Quote of the Day - The Buddha resides quite as comfortably in the circuits of a digital computer or the gears of a cycle transmission as he does at the top of a mountain or in the petals of a flower. - Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

Not Necessarily Neutral On Harley Davidsons

Finding neutral on a Harley is like trying to put an electric plug into a wall socket - blindfolded.  It's not an easy task.  Frequently, a Harley transmission has a mind of its own, and unless you develop the "knack," it's best to keep the clutch engaged instead of stalling the bike out at a stop sign.

For HOG riders, then, today's news of Harley's voluntary safety recall on its 2006 Dyna series motorcycles built between June 9 and Oct. 19 due to a transmission defect didn't come as much of a surprise.  Apparently, the defect allows the green neutral light on the dash to illuminate when the bike is not in neutral.  In response to news of the recall, many of us owners said, "why not mine, too?"

Harley estimates the recall includes only 13,400 bikes, and will cost the company $5.0 million.  If you own one of these bikes, Harley will come to you, pick it up, fix it and return it to you, all free of charge.  Harley's stock rose on the news, at least in some people's eyes.
