I own a 2006 BUELL / Harley Davidson Blast bike. Two weeks ago while street riding in my neighborhood the rear suspension mount had all four bolts shear off at the base. (fortunately I wasn't hurt).
Has anyone out there had a similar experience?
I'll post photos this evening.....My dealer Cycle City Maui / Oahu has not been helpful at all. In fact, they do not want to repair the bike since they are concerned about the liability.
Buell / Harley Davidson corporate has distanced itself and their customer service department hasn't even bothered to return my request for assistance.

I have been riding a Buell for three years now. I have been a member of Buell discussion board for about the same time. I have never heard of this happening as yet.

Did you own the bike since it was new? Were you or the previous owner abusing it in any way (stoppies, jumps off curbs, etc.)?

Unless they used the wrong type of metal bolts, which is possible but highly unlikely, I would have to be suspicious of the nature of this incident.
I Bought the bike new at Cycle City / Maui Harley Davidson. I am a 56 year lifetime rider and use the bike to commute to the office. My "stunt" days are way done! Bike has been exclusively serviced by the dealer. here is the photo of the broken mount.
