You do have a valid point. After her and Kid Dork, I think she would need a dip in muriatic acid to clean that up.

Default This might sting a bit.

LOL

Maybe with a full body condom, after the dip. I'd still have to think about it.

Default Re: Facts vs. Hype

Honda has been selling their XR100, 80etc motor for several decades. I would guess they can make an XR100 for about $400 and they sell it for about $2100 MSRP. I'm sure the dealer gets a couple hundred out of it, but the company must make over a thousand per copy. Millions are sold around the world and I'm sure they are cheaper to those customers, but still very profitable to Honda. That's gotta be where they make their money.



I'll bet the only sport bikes they make money on are the 600's and everything else is sold at a loss.



I think Triumph, after about 9 years in the US market and a dozen in Europe and Britain still have yet to recover their investment. And they sell their bikes at prices a bit higher than the Japs.

Default Re: Honda bulletproof?

I'm at 74,400 miles on my '92 FLHS and the drive train is starting to rattle a bit (loose rocker arms most likely as the pushrods are tight). So, in a year or so I'll be doing a top end rebuild. But the tranny, clutch, suspension and nearly everything else are in good shape. The odd bit that has needed fixing (voltage regulator, shifter return spring) was easy and cheap to fix.



Now, my '02 Triumph on the other hand with only 10,800 miles on it, although repair-free to date, I'm afraid to touch. It took me a whole weekend just to check the valve lash.



I can check valve lash on my '70 Tiger in-between sips of coffee.



I'll tell you honestly, if I never had to go over 65 mph I would sell all my bikes, but that old Triumph!

This needs to be looked at in the greater picture. Motorcycle sales in general are up. One manufacturer may be doing a bit better than others, but almost all are up. Triumph is another company that has seen HUGE increases in sales so far this year. This is not intended as any knock on Harley, and it's actually a great thing for the motorcycling industry as a whole. But it's not just that Harley has done something tremendous to separate themselves.

Build a shed and move the bikes you ride the least out there.

It could be that it's not all about image, but that Harley really does build a pretty damn good motorcycle.
