a BMW not a good daily driver....
I've had K-bike, airheads, oilheads - and put tons of miles on each of them with as much reliability as an owner could ask for. Extremely reliable and fun to own and ride, NO more problems than any other bike I've owned.
So a person has some bad anecdotal stories about his ownership experience, and tries to tell a person asking for advice to avoid BMW because they're not daily driver material.... well, I sure wouldn't be listening to that kind of advice in the face of knowing how many satisfied owners there are around the world.
