You’re welcome @Yamaha Pat . I think it’s important to post the good. Anybody and everybody tears up the internet when something is wrong, but few do it when something goes right. It’s the same with any service company out there. People will scream bloody murder about something not right, but how about going back and giving a compliment when things are done well?
I know I do.

Got to give kudos when kudos is due.

Riding is not just what I do but who I am.

Nice to see Yamaha stand behind their product. I think they got more than their $249 worth in free advertising here. Too bad they no longer produce any bikes I would buy.

You know I have heard that same thing that Yamaha is getting out of the Cruser business and that the sells of the VTC are not good, but honestly, the only place that I have been able to confirm this is from the forums, when I talk to the dealers, they are selling them just fine and most cannot keep them in stock according to them. And when I read the big bike touring blogs and articles they all rave over the bike the complaints we all know and have posted here are so trivial that they would not stop them from purchasing the bike. Yamaha's sales are increasing every year over Harley, and others that make the same type of bikes, so why do we keep hearing that sales are sluggish, that Yamaha is getting out of the cruiser market?
And now we hear that they stand behind their products past the warranty period, why would anyone buy anything but the VTC?

I know that the Cruiser market is the largest here in the US but why would this affect the overall sales of the bike? It's not like a company has never built something for a specific market before right?

Anyway, I love my bike and just like Cheif Gunner, I too had the pushrod issue with my bike where it wore a hole in the exhaust valve and more at only 5K and Yamaha came through and paid for all repairs and the bike has been great ever since.

Cheif, thanks for the good news.
