There are a lot of opinions, but there seems to be a ton of technical knowledge on this site so I ask you. If you were looking to buy a bike today, with the idea that you would have to keep the same motorcycle for say 20 years, would it make more sense to buy a fuel injected model or one that still uses carburetors? I have low to average mechanical skills, I believe I could learn to work on a carburetor. I have low to average computer skills, so I could probably learn to use a program that allowed me to adjust a fuel injected system. I will be living in a remote area on a low fixed income. Does one or the other make more sense for me? next summer I plan to take the lump check I get at retirement for left over vacation and sick time and buy a new motorcycle. It is probably the last large batch of $ I will have until I kick it, so I am really trying to make a wise purchase. I welcome all feedback.
