I've been searching for my perfect touring bike. I don't mind idiosyncrasies in machinery if I'm riding locally but for touring I wanted comfort and reliability. Every machine that appealed to me I discovered had foibles of one sort or another. I went a new direction, and surprised myself, with a Goldwing. It has a warranty (and it's a Honda) so I don't plan on fixing it. If I need the warranty too often, or needing the warranty becomes inconvenient, the bike will be going away.
