2008 Fat Bob / whining noise w/weaving or 40mph

1 NH, United States Review updated:

We purchased this bike last year brand new. It has had this noise at lower speeds and a death wobble at higher speeds and our complaints to our dealer fall on deaf ears. The last service visit my husband was told that he needed a new rear tire, highly doubtful at less then 6000 miles. This bike is babied, we waited a long time to be able to afford it and now we are disgusted with the service that we are receiving. I have two questions, 1. Would anyone have a toll free number to contact HD directly? and 2. Has anyone else experienced these problems with a similar bike?. Thanks for letting me vent!!

    I'm assuming this is your first motorcycle? What kind of sound is it at low speeds? Also, check the rear tire. I have motorcycle and I get around 9000 miles out of a sport touring tire. 6000 miles isn't that much of a stretch as far as a tire failing. It's not a car so you cannot expect 20000 miles. Best of luck. Hopefully you can get it resolved.
