Harley Recalls Bikes for Parts Falling Off Danger

The first blog we ever wrote about was the problem with Harley. Well, some things never change.

Harley Davidson has announced a recall of 2012 and 2013 VRSCDX motorcycles. It seems that the license plate bracket can fall off. That can end up hitting the rear tire. That can spin it around. That can make it damage the rear brake line. That can leave the rider with a dangerous brake failure. You can just see it happening.

Worse yet, even though they know it's a problem, harley won't even start to tell consumers about it for at least another week. If you own a Harley, be careful out there. Here's the recall.

2012 Harley Davidson VRSCDX Recalled

Summary:
 Harley-Davidson Motor Company (Harley-Davidson) is recalling all model year 2012 and certain model year 2013 VRSCDX motorcycles manufactured from June 14, 2011, through August 1, 2012. The license plate bracket assembly's mounting screws may loosen and the assembly may separate from the rear fender. This condition may lead to contact with the rear tire which could cause the license plate bracket to rotate, possibly damaging the rear brake line.   

Consequence:
 If the license plate bracket contact with the rear brake line remains undetected, it may affect rear brake performance, increasing the risk of a crash, which could lead to injury or death of the rider.
