    I am a lady, Harley owner for the second time. My new bike is a 2014 Harley 1200T. Although, I love my new bike there seem to be some surging issues with it. Twice within the last week my bike has suddenly surged with such acceleration that today it caused me to crash and sustain considerable damage. Despite, the dealership telling me that there is nothing wrong with my bike there have also been issues with the oil pressure light and message reading "NO FOB" coming up in error. In addition, I found out that a male rider bought the same bike right after me and never made it off the property. Apparently, the bike surged and he crashed in the field behind the dealership. I was also informed that he was not a new rider. If anyone has experienced the same issues please let me know.

    No fortunately, I was not physically hurt but thanks for asking, Tourbox. This new Harley is not the first bike I have owned. The only time I have ever experienced acceleration issues in the past was with a bike which was half seized up from sitting for an extended period. If anyone has had this rapid acceleration/surging issue with the new Sportster 1200T or if you know of anyone who has experienced this please post with any info.

    Not the way I'd want my new ride to perform. Glad you're okay! Welcome to the forum from the southwest desert.
