There are some posts here with those dates and if you do a Google search it will turn up a few documents as well.

I should have inserted the ; or maybe you are as sarcastic a RR and Wile E. Coyote fan as I am?

"The Acme Corporation is a fictional corporation that features prominently in the Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote animated shorts as a running gag featuring outlandish products that fail or backfire catastrophically at the worst possible times. "

My dealer indicated that the K1600 recall would start soon. They have started to review the procedures.
