Re: now I know why I didn't buy a used bike

I got a bunch of stuff like that too (but not with HRC on it) from HRCA when I got my 'Blade last September.. yeah.. but what do I do in July? Do I use my HCRA membership or park on Ducati Island... (uh.. the agony. THE AGONY...)

Re: now I know why I didn't buy a used bike

Not going to bitch about something that's free, but the quality of the stickers sucks. OK, so that's tantamount to bitching, but still...

I DID put one on my rollaway before shitcanning the rest though.

Me neither, but for me thank God. I get enough junk mail as it is.

You're not missing that much bro. I do think you should inquire though, if for no other reason than the free one year HRCA membership that I thought everyone got with a new Honda.

Re: now I know why I didn't buy a used bike

Got the free one year membership, get the RedRider magazine doohickie, but I didn't get any stinking decals! Not that I would use them anyway, well, maybe on my Craftsman roll-away.

Uh, if your dealer did not sign you up for your first year of HRCA then you got rooked. Call and complain. It's worth it, especially if you breakd down (plus the HRCA litterally saved my life at Laguna Seca by providing shade for my 2nd degree sunburned skin and the endless supply of snow-cones. I really need a 2-stroke mixer like they have!!!

Only, of course, if it's the BLACK Craftsman rollaway... such as the one which adorns my garage.

Re: now I know why I didn't buy a used bike

What timing! My HRCA packet came today.

In the pack I got:

1. Membership Benefits Manual
2. HRCA membership card
3. May/June issue of RedRider
4. Savings coupons from Honda($5 off purchase of $50 or more of Genuine Honda Parts or Pro Honda Oils and Chemicals)
5. Pep Boys coupon($50 off any purchase of $250 or more)
6. Cruz Tools coupon(Save $20 on CM2 CruzMetrix Tool Kit)
7. Yuasa coupon(Save up to 30% on Yuasa Battery Chargers)
8. Cruise America coupon(Save 15% on motorcycle or RV rental)
9. Save $10 at Play It Again Sports coupon
10. Free spare tire with a Kendon Trailer coupon
11. Crutchfield coupon($20 off any car stereo in-dash receiver)
12. Savings on E-Z UP shelters(10' x 10' Enterprise II/red. Retail $350. On sale $229.
13. Lucky 13! A postcard to select two out of the four possible free gifts: A Honda pin, A Honda patch, A decal sheet like the one above, or a soft vinyl Honda key fob.

I'm probably going to take the decal sheet and the key fob!

Just thought I'd let you guys know what's in the latest pack!
