Your lucky you have a "Dealer" here the "Honda" dealer is a huge Harley dealership that has the honda dealership just to keep anyone else from having it or so it seems. If you go in for honda work they make you feel like a moron for owning a Wing and try to sell you on a harley. They also won't work on a wing older than 10 years. They did do me a favor by recommending a local mechanic with no dealership but a "real mechanic"
Not a "tech" which is a wordthat means"part replacer with no mechanical skill".
So he now gets all my work, but he can't do warranty work.
I went to another Honda dealer 100 miles from my house and bought a 2010 Goldwing, My first brand new Goldwing after owning wings since 1981, 29 years of used bikes . I figured I woud take it the 100 miles for warranty work...........
NO SUCH LUCK! 2 weeks after I bought it I received a call to come get my new bike as the "dealer" had gone bankrupt.
The deal was they stored it for the winter BUT now I had to find a place to store it and a way to get it home in -8 weather and snow.
So now I get a letter from Honda telling me that my "new" dealer is the big harley dealer that has no interest in honda products.
Man I love my wings but sometimes I'm a bit jealous of the harley guys and the dealer support they seem to get.
It's not What you ride..
It's That you ride...
