Re: Japanese bikes have fewer problems than BMW and Harley m
Everyone knows about Harley's and their constant issues and as for BMW's I think it is more the ownership costs involved more than the number of miles ridden.
When BMW's break down it can break the bank. :? Just like their cars....they are nice, fun, and fairly reliable but they are also quite expensive to fix and maintain. If you can't afford to fix it then it sits or gets sold at a loss hence the less than happy owners. IMHO
Reliability, cost, and the fun factor determine which ones are satisfied with their ride. After all we forget the small inexpensive issues we encounter once we are out riding with those stupid grins on our face.
I like and will always like the big 3 Japanese manufactures Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda and in that order! Yall can have the Kawasaki's. 8)
If an American company could make a good mid-sized bike (under 450 lbs.) I would surely be interested but no chances there...... :roll:
