I checked the 1800 rider contact list, and there are no listings for Montana. I hope the dealer can help you on tuesday.

preacherjack,
sounds like you have in fact located parts ,,as you said the HD rider is "going to ride 100 miles to get them". good deal!
Please post back when you have time and explain what happened to your Wing to let others know what the 'symptoms' were in regards to your bearing/axle failing. Me included.
I have never had a bearing go out on any of my 2 wheelers. Now watch,,in the next month probably both front and rear bearings will go out of the ol bomb now,,:)
Have a good rest of your 'up north' trip,,and post pictures,,when you return!

take care,
bc

Thanks a Harley rider has offered to make a
100 mile run to get parts. I guess I can accept.
I guess you should hope he's not one of those wing and harley owners that reads this board. If it was me I'd say "Well, I guess I can let you sit."

You guys are too sensitive, sounds like a bunch of woman.

What does the brand of bike have to do with someone helping you. I would just be glad someone was trying to help:confused::confused:

Can't use the gold book. Remember GWRRA is horrible and good for nothing.
Kurt :thumbup:
Damn, can't take help from Harley guys and GWRRA is worthless. Better call some BMW riders and hope for pity.

I read the I guess part meaning, I guess I will intrude on a total stranger and ask him to go 200 miles out his way for me instead of hopefully getting in touch with a local forum member. I took it as the OP feels sort of bad having this guy do this for him. Even though the "harley guy" offered, that's a big thing to accept.

Damn some folks just read into stuff way to much and automatically assume it's for the bad.
