Hmmm, I s'pose I can remain friends with you after all Fuller. You're finally talking sense.

I'm loyal to Honda as well. Gots a 600rr and a Civic SI that I use to haul the Honda phiddy.

Well i started off when i was little on yamaha, because of Mcgrath, and becasue it always seemed yamaha was making faster bikes and quads than everyone, but none of them seemed to hold up to my abuse, and then i bought a Honda and changed everything over to them because of quality about 3 years ago have honda forman, civic, different honda house equipment, cbr, and cr. They all take some type of abuse and never miss a lick

Honda is without a doubt my favorite overall. Their quality is second to none. I do a lot of wrenching on bikes of all brands - each seems to have their strong suit making some things easier to work on them - they all have some good ideas. I have a very soft spot in my heart for the Gen 1 (2001 - 2005) Yamaha Fz 1. They are one of the finest "all around " bikes I have ever owned.

That's funny, because my Dad has a '88 Ranger 2.9 that went 350k and never had to remove the valve covers. He rebuilt the engine (I'm still not sure why) when he moved to Santa Fe NM and it's still kickin.

I started off on Ducati's. But then after i got married, money was tighter...wanted something with less maintenance & more dependability.

Honda

Isn't that kinda prejudiced?

No real loyalty to any one brand here, but I bought a Triumph for my first bike because a few of my friends had some a few years back. I haven't been disappointed. It's been a great bike.

Honda. My f2 was trashed by the previous owners(the left frame slider is worn down about 1.5 inches more than the right side) but its still running strong with 40k miles. If I could afford to insure it I would be riding a 08 1000rr right now.

I grew up around Harley's all my life. Loved then got older and saw most people have their harley in the shop than on the road realized i wanted something dependable. Went to the international bike show sat on every bike and the only one that made me feel comfortable on was one a Agusta 1000 but $26K is a little to far fetched for me, then the suzuki amazing balance comfort and feel. So I'm a gixxer man.

I've always loved and lusted after Ducs. Their lines are just beautiful and elegant. Plus no other brand will make you as good a mechanic.

It's kind of a bad relationship, expensive and abusive, but for some reason I just keep coming back.

Oh and BTW, I have never taken my ducs to starbucks. I refuse to on general principle.

I have no brand loyalty. Always changing my mind about what I want and why... Always learning new things about new products, etc... BUT- I do agree that Honda is the most dependable brand out there.
