Always fun getting warranty notices warning the rider that he or she may become a human fireball.
Oh, I’m not worried about it. The retrofit was actually installed a month or so ago when I had the rear shock replaced. I think it’s sort of funny, honestly. The thought of riding down the road and suddenly becoming a human fireball is sort of funny, in the cartoon physics sense.Recalls happen all the time and with every brand of bike. Most of them are the result of a company erring far on the side of safety and, although they indicate a problem that must be taken care of, are hardly any reason to panic. I bet if you looked up how many Ducati's actually burst into flame you'd find the number is relatively minuscule and that you're far more likely to die as a result of falling down the stairs or something.
Luckily I’ve had enough recalls on the bike that the less-immediate ones get fixed along with the more important ones. Maybe “luckily” is the wrong word, but I fully expect bugs to be worked out on my dime because I bought an all-new bike, which I’d normally not do for just that reason. I couldn’t resist, though!Yep, got one on my Indian right now that I'm ignoring. Don't panic. The problem that causes a recall may not exist on every bike.
