Ginger the Harley is back at home 10-15-12

Day we bought Ginger 1-11-11
Yes, we have her back.  Not sure for how long, but she is back.  They finally got Harley to let them go into the lower end of the motor, and we are now told that our oil pump was burned up.  Not sure how the oil pump can be burned up and still pumping oil out of the breather, but that's their story and they are sticking to it. 

We haven't had a chance to get her out and ride, but according to Chuck she is still clattering like crazy. He also tells me that their is a drop or two of oil under  Sometimes, I think you just have to admit you might have gotten a lemon???  I guess that Harley's really aren't supposed to be ridden.  Just "trophy" bikes....look pretty sitting in the garage, and tell everyone..."Oh yeah, we have a Harley".  Amazing that our 2003 model "Pearl" had over 120,000 miles on her.  They just don't make things to last anymore. 

I know that some may say, well, it's just a bike, but really, if you spend way over $20,000 to own one of these beast, don't you think it should last a little while.  I say way over 20g because, if you have one or ever owned one, you know the basic bike is just a "starter kit"....They have to have chrome, pipes, and of course you have to have the apparel to go along with it.  LOL

Anyway, we will see how it goes with Miss Ginger, and I bet I have more blogs about her.  I wish we didn't love the bike so much, but she is part of the family, and we have to take care of the girl  :)
