Dealer services

Recently the fuel pump went out on my 08 V Star 1100 Classic that I bought new this past April. It left me stranded over an hour away from home. It was a warranty repair.

My question is, I was talking with a friend who is an avid Harley guy. He was telling me that when his bike is under warranty, if he breaks down the dealership will arrange for the bike to be picked up, no matter where he is, and will deliver the bike back to his house when repairs are complete, free of charge.

Is this common, and does Yamaha offer this anywhere?

Warrenty

A group of guys I know were on a ride around Lake Erie. One of the bikes was a new Harley. The Harley broke down in Canada. Harley picked it up on a Sunday repaired it, got it back to him in day and paid for a nights lodging.

Of course the Harley cost twice as much as your 1100. Don't know if he paid for any extra coverage or not. And, the yamaha is a lot less likely to break down. You seldom hear of a new bike needing any repair.

While traveling I needed a tire. The local dealer did go out of his way to get me a tire.
