What were the great Honda engineers thinking when they put the Rincon's VIN number in an inaccessable location? It is on the front frame, hidden from view, even more hidden when you have a winch installed. Sold mine yesterday and was trying to confirm the VIN for the buyer. Even called the dealer and he just laughed and said, yeah, you have to take things apart to view it. What a joke! The buyer said that in his area, the game warden has often stopped riders to check their VINs and verify that they are not stolen machines. Also said if he can't see the VIN, you have to take things apart till he can! So much for the great Honda engineering.
Just a note, my previous Yamahas had them very easy to locate and view so a situation like this would not be a problem.
