Harley-Davidson Motor Company has announced a recall of its ABS-equipped 2014 model year Touring and CVO Touring motorcycles. The recall concerns the potential that the front brake line can become pinched between the gas tank and the frame causing a front brake lock-up. The recall implicates over 66,000 baggers manufactured from July 1, 2013 to May 7, 2014, and shipped in the U.S. and over 84,000 worldwide.
While Harley-Davidson intends to contact its customers directly, I recommend that riders proactively contact a local HD dealer to get this fixed immediately.
