One of the main reasons BMW bought Husky was to offer bikes w/o their three year warranty. They learned very quickly with the G450/650x bikes that a three year warranty on a dirt bike made them unprofitable. I spoke to the warranty manger for BMW NA at length about their warranties and he stated that as much as 20% of the price of a new BMW was the three year warranty.
We are enmeshed in the cancerous discipline of "security." And in the worship of security we fling our lives beneath the wheels of routine - and before we know it our lives are gone.
