Handin' out props to Bloodworth Motorcycles of Nashville

I would like to use this space to thank Service Manager Scott Esteren and his crew at Bloodworth.

We arrived in Nashville from Cave City in Kentucky around 6:30PM Central time and I start noticing a pretty strong gasoline smell.
Now, I'm dumb enough (and hopeful enough) to be thinking, "Wow, Nashville sure smells like gas all of a sudden". The bike was running fine.
Upon arriving at the hotel, I just had to look under the bike to see what was up. Sure enough we had a little gas drippage coming from the right side of the bike. The gas dripped only when the bike was running.
I'm hopin' it is just the quick connects.
Referencing the trusty Anonymous book in the dealer section, I found Bloodworth.
I called the number and because they were closed, had to leave a message in Scott's voice mail. I gave him the cliff notes version of the leak and asked if he could call my cell in hopes that he would be able to help me out. I received a phone call from Scott the next morning around 8:15 while I was at breakfast (Bloodworth opens at 8:30).
He told me to to stop by after breakfast and he'd see what he could do.

When I got there (and after all the preliminary stuff) naturally I had to ask him about how long this would take. To my suprise, he told me about 45 minutes. Sure enough, an hour later four other Harley riders and I were back on the road and on our way to the Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg. Evidently bourbon and whiskey distillery tours are big things to Harley riders.

Again I would like to thank Scott and his crew for extending prompt service for a couple of out-of towners and getting us back on our way with minimum hassle.
BTW, it was those damn quick connects. Even though only one was leaking, they did the prudent thing and replaced both of them.

Kinda like you, I was on a toy ride late last November and naturally there were several HD and metrics, about 3 miles from the end of the ride I started noticing a strong gas smell and I thought........man one of those HD has sprung a leak, that figures! Well...........the smell would not go away and I was still thinking that one of those HD's really had a bad fuel leak, well it was so strong that I remembered about the disconnects from this forum and looked down and my right leg was getting drenched in fuel...that's MY bike!

So, after a tow back to Chattanooga and a few days later I had a few new metal disconnects.

Glad you were back on your way; we did the JD tour about 3 weeks ago. Had lunch in town.

If that's where you were, did you notice all the coffee cups hanging in the back with the towns peoples' names on them?
