Now before you guys get your pitch forks and light your torches to march on Corndog's castle, I have owned a bunch of brands in my life. I know they all will (or can) break down leaving you sad. I have just never had it happen with my SuperVee in 100,000 miles or either of my Super Teneres in a combined 70,000 miles.
So experience has made me sort of endeared to Suzuki and Yamaha and it also has made me prejudice of some other brands.
BTW, those are real (and pissed off) alligators in my moat and they only get fed at election time when the candidates come to ask for my vote.
