HD Waypoints needed

I have ridden a lot of miles with with friends who have had all different brands of bikes over the years, and in all of those years we have had 6 bikes to breakdown on the road. All 6 of them were HD bikes. I am sitting here in Little Rock waiting for my friend to get his HD fixed and decided that I need to put waypoints to HD dealers in my Garmin. Can anyone lead me to a up to date list. I have Googled, and the newest list I can find is almost 2 years old.

TIA
Dean

Why? What's the point?! All that bling looks so bitchin' on the side of the road. Who gives a crap wether the bike actually runs or not!

I've had my HD for about six years now, has never broken down on me yet (knock wood!).

As is often said on this forum, they're just machines, and machines break down from time to time. Neither the BMWs nor the Harleys are an exception to this "rule."

Oh, and yes, mine does have lots of chrome, custom paint, and farkles.

Ditto, only time I have ever waited for a two truck was for a BMW motorcycle on the side of the road. My Harley never was towed, spend alot in shop, but never left me. I guess that the way the ball bounces sometime.

This isn't neccessary. I just traveled through many States. It would appear that there's a Harley dealership at every other exit, or so.

For what it is worth my roadking never, not once, let me down on the road on a trip. On many trips a few HD's have had minor problems but were always fixed within an hour or so at the dealer. Maybe a couple hours max if we include getting to the dealer. On a recent trip to SF a BMW nearly melted down, literally. Forgetting the finding and getting to the dealer part, the bike sat for a week waiting for a part from the motherland. I failed to appreciate my shift linkage crapping out on my LT leaving me stranded last fall. Especially after reading this forum after the fact and finding out how common this was. Thank gosh for AAA and 100 mile towing range.

I currently own several German vehicles, Audi, MB and the BMW LT I can say with certainty that the QC and reliabiltiy is poor at best. But I do like to drive them all. Just pick up a consumer reports and see that for just about every German product from cars, bikes to dishwashers; the reliability sucks on most every front. There are pages full of black circles. It is, or at least it should be quite embarrassing for them, but it is not; they are very proud.

I am off on a 6k plus trip in a few weeks and I must say, for the first time for me, I am concerned about a reliability and the turn around time if something does go wrong. Will that stop me from lovin the bike and enjoying every minute... no way. But I know that I think twice before weighing in too heavily on threads that contain the R word.

For the life of me, I can't figure out what kind of person would own "several German vehicles" while believing that their "QC and reliability is poor at best". A masochist? A snob? Or perhaps a masochistic snob?!

Yup live and learn. I will likely never buy another auto product from those maunfaturers again. I also own a Toyota if you are counting. I have owned Lexus and Kia products along with a long history with VW and Porsche. I do like the way the German products drive. But times they are a changin and the cost to fix cars and MC's is getting out of hand. Reliability is taking the front seat in my decision process.

Joe it appears from the number of your comments/posts like the one above that you think your 'humor' and condescending comments are witty. For the record I find you rude and offensive.

Yeah, while the BMWs, Porches, even Jokeswagens are great fun to drive, I have to admit that they can't touch the reliability of a Toyota......BUT, if that Toyota could just FEEL like a BMW.........

Oh, btw, Joe, did I tell you how RUDE you are? Congratulations!

And you hang out with Harley riders, huh? Well they must be some REAL posers if you think that I am "rude and offensive". Either that, or you just need to lighten up about 10 notches. Maybe you're tie is on too tight? Or your underwear is a size (or 2) too small?

Whatever. I'll try to treat you with more sensitivity from now on. Now that I know you're such a gentle flower.

Wow, I was just going to suggest you follow the trails of leaking oil to the dealership, but now I'm afraid I may offend someone.

Oh, f*ck it!

Yeah HD is on every other corner, which is comforting. If my BM breaks down and it requires a special part I am screwed. Some states don't even have BM dealers, next year I may have to switch to the new Kawasaki Concourse 14. I love my RT but fact is things do not run forever and on long trips to the outback like Wyoming or Montana it could get somewhat uncomfortable knowing there are no service shops around!

Joe, I was going to tell you that you're very SARCASTIC, also! But, then I realised that it was just my panties twisting.......
