#58x - picked up 2/14 - broken flywheel key - 4.3 miles on the clock - 2/20.

I'm looking through the selection of little yellow smiley faces but I don't see one that looks like someone bent over, their pants around their ankles, and a big painful grimace on his face. That would be me right about now.

Gloft, 1/29/03, ser # 1140, Georgia, 90 miles, dealer fixed bike under warranty. Stated torque was wrong and replaced woodruff key. It better work cause I was 30 + miles in the mountains when mine died. Didn't get out of the woods til well after dark!

This is the first time I've had to be on the wrong end of a tow-strap in over 10 years of owning Hondas. This sux !! :)
