My ignorance was in buying a BMW R1200c Montauk. I gave it every chance and it is junk as far as I am concerned. There were parts falling of on long rides, to the Factory representative refusing to honor the warranty, because I use the bike out side. It is just an anemic pot metal rattletrap, that my wife out ran in a 1992 dodge van pulling a trailer.
I now have a Yamaha cruiser, which far outperforms that piece of crap, and its ww2 engineering.
