I purchased a 2012 Dyna Super Glide Custom on 04/17/12 and went to pick up the tags and registration on 05/04/12 at Rommels HD in Smyrna, DE.This is an 80 mile round trip on route 1 with speeds of 65-70 MPH.
When returning from the trip on my Dyna, I was 1/4 mile away from my house when I heard a lot of noise and vibration from the rear wheel. I pulled in the clutch and looked at the rear wheel and saw the belt drive sprocket flopping around. The 5 bolts holding the drive sprocket to the rear wheel had backed out and no signs of LOC-TITE on the 2 dangling bolts and 1 wedged between the swing arm and drive sprocket. I pushed bike the rest of the way home and looked at what had just happened in disbelief with only 334 miles on odometer, wondering what might have happened at 65-70 MPH.
I called Rommels HD of Smyrna, which I had just left an hour ago bragging how much I liked the bike while I was there. I told Matt what had happened, he said he would line up a driver to pick up the bike today (Saturday 05/05/12), bike is at Rommels, Greg the manager said they will fix it. I said how about the rest of the nuts and bolts holding this POS together, Greg said they will look it over, I said you are not going to go back over every nut and bolt that would take 2 weeks. I am not real happy with HD right now.
Bike is broke and I haven't even gotten through the 500 mile break in.Harley will get a call Monday Morning, MORE TO BE POSTED.
