This is how I got it back. The parts appear to have been replaced, but they didn't bother to clean the paste created by the aluminum dust and chain lube covering the rear wheel. And the entire bike is covered in waterspots and greasy handprints. Can't take an extra 3 minutes to clean it up and look like you take pride in your work?  There's also these nice scratches on the wheel now...

At what point does the lemon law kick in?  Does that even apply to motorcycles?  Can you nullify the sale?  What kind of a douchebag outfit does this shit?!

Alabama doesn't have a Lemon Law (although I don't believe it would apply in this case anyway since the problem was fixed). As far as I know, Alabama doesn't have a "grace period" for vehicle purchases either. At this point,  I don't want to have to deal with them anymore.

I had a choice to go an hour south and do business with Max Motorsports, or head 1.5 hours north and deal with Midway.  I chose poorly...I will not make that mistake again.

Dude, I would make him fix the scratched wheels.

I am going to send them an email and tell them what I think.  If I have Kevin's permission I will send them a link to this thread and the information on the Bama Rides membership.

What say you Kevin?

Wow.  Appears they are not even remotely interested in making this "right", other than "here, it's fixed, now go away".  Piss poor customer service for sure.  Any dealer worth his salt would have made sure the bike was clean and certainly wouldn't send it out with scratched up wheels.

Visiting Midway has been on my to-do list for a while.  I'm scratching that off the list now.

Bill messaged me a few minutes ago...offered an apology and to order a new wheel.

I've already replaced the original rim decals with another set and added touch-up paint to the scratches...I really don't care about a new wheel at this point. I'm just ready to ride the thing.

This all seems like a headache that wound up requiring an ER visit when a simple Tylenol would have sufficed to begin with.

Good luck keeping that front wheel down! I know that's where I struggle!

When in trouble, shower down on the throttle. It either fixes the problem or ends the suspense.
