the most japanes bike are relayble ( very ) and the most honda's last long with extreem high milages too Honda pan europe , CB750/900/1100 ( DOHC) Transalp 600/650 runs for ever. I'm not a sportbike guy , I like roadstars and all road and off roads , I bought the BMW as a project ,, this year I fix the technical state of it ,, next year if I find a good sprayer to take care of that. my bmw is a long distance bike, you only have to stop for a refull of the gas and if you need a soda or a smoke ( I don't ) and when you have a leak... you run easy 100.000 miles with out any large malfunction and more some more than 200.000 , and the they use oil a bite ... a lot of police use them too I can't enter that link ,,, my IP is banned ?? because I'm in Europe ?
