FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MMA SAFETY ALERT: Harley Recalls all Project Rushmore Saddlebags
The Massachusetts Motorcycle Association would like to alert all riders who own model year 2014 and 2015 Project Rushmore Touring motorcycles that the Harley-Davidson Motor Company issued a recall stating that the saddlebag mounting receptacle, part number 10900009 on some vehicles may not adequately secure the saddlebag to the motorcycle during use. If this condition remains unaddressed, the saddlebag may become separated from the motorcycle while it is in motion, possibly creating a hazard for other motorists.
Owners of the affected motorcycles will be asked to arrange service with an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer, who will confirm that the motorcycle is covered by this recall, and then install the updated mounting receptacle. This service will be provided at no charge to the customer.
Your Massachusetts Motorcycle Association strongly urges you to take your motorcycle to your dealer to have the appropriate service performed as soon as possible. Should you choose to ride your motorcycle prior to this service, we urge you to be aware of this condition.
For more information, please see your local Harley-Davidson dealer.
