Apparently, the front brake line can get caught and cause the front wheel to lock up. And, well, you can guess what happens after that.
A couple of thoughts I have on the recall:
1. I'm glad Harley-Davidson is doing the responsible thing and recalling the bikes that could have a problem.
2. I'm glad I've held off on buying a new bike this year.*
3. Holy crap, 66,421 bikes and those are just the touring models for 2014? How many bikes altogether does Harley sell in a year? Color me impressed.
*More details to come on the new bike shopping...
