Default Re: Honda bulletproof?

outside of Philly. I do ride in the winter a bit, but they ***** the roads all up with cinders and salt once we get our first snow, so it makes corners kinda scary after that.

shortride, you really need to get laid or something. All's I said is that Harley has to be to most successful marketing company in the world. You take that as an insult? I never said Honda does not market thier products. Where did you come up with that from?



I am not a wrencher, so if i have a problem, sure, I will take it to the dealer. Will I have my current Wing forever? Probably not. I would like to own some other bikes before I die. Right now, I wouldn't mind that Rocket III, a used Valk (or hopefully they will make a new one), i even like that new Softail Deluxe.



LOL. Right...no one likes Wings.

Default Re: Wings in Junk Yards? Huh?

He only went around the world once? A few months ago I remember reading about a guy who had just completed his fourth trip around the world on a Gold Wing.

Thought? I looked at the K1200LT, Gold Wing, and Electra Glide. The Wing offered better all-around performance than either of those bikes, and I liked the styling better too. For what you get, the BMW and HD are way over-priced in my opinion....you are paying to have that BMW logo or the HD logo.



See, I don't care what name is on my bike...I care about the bike. To me, the Wing is the better bike. A lot of people have to have that HD name on their bike, no matter what. That is called Branding, which is directly related to Marketing. Kinda like in the 80's when you had those little animals on your shirts. Izod had the alligator, Sears had a Dragon and JC Penny had a Fox.



You wanted to wear the Alligator to show off.

Default Re: Notice Buell is NOT listed...

Yamaha is introducing the MT-01 (the V-twin sport bike-show bike of a year ago) that will probably take a big bite out of Buel sales if they decide to bring it here. (Europe only in 2005)

Default Re: CRF....

Agree on Honda's two strokes. They are a couple of design cycles behind, looks like they are putting the R&D bucks in the CRF's.



Maybe I could Greyhound it out to SoCal, get an '03 CRF450 (to replace my '97 CR250, which I can now race in the vintage class in Wisconsin!) for under $5k, and ride it home in the interstate medians. Anyone tried this?



As for the Dealers vs. the corporation making money, this whole thread is about the corporations, not the dealers. Honda is making money on the wings, they are a great bike, regardless of the minor design flaws.



(Yes, I consider them minor, this argument is a dead horse, let's not start it again)
