Welcome....

If you can't ride your Wing, have yourself a few beers and go ride the manatees! LOL...

I wish you luck with the bike. Hudson Honda might have someone that can fix it for you. Crystal River doesn't look like much of a shop. :(

bike problem

THE PROBLEM I HAD WAS FIRST WHEN I WENT TO PICK IT UP, MECHANIC TOOK IT FOR TEST RIDE AND CAME BACK WITH NO FRONT BRAKES, SO I WAITED FOR TWO HOURS WHILE THEY BLED BRAKES AND MESSED WITH IT. FINALLY GOT MAD AND LEFT. CALLED ME HOUR LATER AND SAID IT WAS READY.
TOOK IT HOME AND RODE IT FOR FOUR DAYS AND FIFTH DAY ON WAY TO WORK FRONT BRAKE LOCKED UP. WELL HAD IT TOWED TO SHOP AND ITS BEEN THERE WEEK. SAID HONDA TECH TOLD THEM TO CHANGE FRONT AND BACK MASTER CYLINDERS,BLED SYSTEM AGAIN. WELL GET BIKE TOMMORRO, WILL SEE.
P.S. HOMOSASSA IS BY CRYSTAL RIVER-CENTRAL FLA EAST COAST......

I too am a new wing owner; got one that someone else got the problems already taken care of.
I bought an '03 Illusion Blue, that the previous owner put a bunch of accessories on, and only rode it 20K in the 3.5 years that he had it. It has been back to Marysville an had the frame REPLACED, to cure the frame cracking problem.
I got it Friday the 13th. of October, and have put some 4K on it since I got it. No problems so far, except for the flasher went ouit on the Hyper lights that were added to the trunk, got a new one, and it's good as new.
Need to add a few things to it though; want the Kuryakyn trunk rack, and transformer passenger rests, & probably their fork brace.
Looking forward to better weather, and lots more miles.

My advice,

See if you can get Fred H. to think this out with you...if anyone knows what could be the 'REAL' problem it will be him...

Good luck and welcome to the soap opera
