Default Re: ST 1300 problems?

Hey squid I was also in PI but at the Upper MAU Camp in the hills outside Olongapo in the Province of Luzon with the US Marines back in 76' for 6 weeks. Anyway, I owned a VW Golf and it got great gas mileage but the oil light always came on in curves (????) and the paint job was crap. Other than those discrepancies it was good to go until 110000 miles. Then I gave it away.

Default you are in error ...

honda has problems, too. but unlike a certain "manufacturer of air-coold v-twins," honda fixes problems and advances the state of the art.



you really should have known this already ....



by the way, if you really want a laugh, compare the rate of recallable defects at honda with certain "manufacturers of air-cooled v-twins."

Default a voice of authority?

you certainly speak authoritatively for someone named "minkeylove." gadzooks, man, get a grip on that handle.

"If he lived in the Pacific Northwest or anyplace similarly temperate I'd tell him to go for it, as my bike was an absolute joy during winter and early spring."



using this logic perhaps we should all purchase winter homes in chernobyl?

If you refuse to acknowledge any errors and you never issue recalls then you have a "perfect record."



So what?

Default Hmm, I wonder then..

I wonder if adding an airscoop or something on the front of the engine heads, perferably to CAUSE some turbulence with cooler air, might help when moving.

you could argue that a little extra, errrr, maintenance and repair are required to ride certain "air-cooled v-twins," but that the cache and status associated with riding one of these trundlers is well worth it. or that it is preferable to push an "air-cooled v-twin" than ride a bike made in japan (even though most "air-cooled v-twin" subcomponents are now made in japan).



but please don't insult our intelligence by implying that certain "air-cooled v-twins" are as reliable as their japanese counterparts.



you really SHOULD know better.

You right. That Honda in my garage with the blown tranny is just a figment of my imagination!



I never said that HDs were as reliable as Hondas. However there's not much difference any more these days. You only reveal your ignorance.

"I agree with you about the Japanese xenophobia, havng spent a couple of years home-ported at Yokosuka in 69-71. I was once chased down the street by a group of rock wielding Japanese girls for daring to simply say hi to them while walking by. "Do not talk to us."



Do you think the same thing would have happened to you in that same time period in Alabama if you were black and the women were white?
