When did I say I had a superior motorcycle? As a matter of fact, I said that it was not perfect. If you had great luck with BMW then I am happy for you. My point was that there is an issue and some here refuse to accept that it exists. As mentioned before, a member here told me back when I had a Beemer too that he did not trust a GS past 30 or 40 thousand miles. Yet when Jap bike guys are present he claims that you could hurt a GS with a sledge hammer.
