What CR discovered. Yamaha, is about six times more reliable than the worst, BMW.

I know the feeling. I have to look at my bike sitting there all lonely when I grab the shovel to go out and clear the snow from the driveway.

Re:Yamaha reigns supreme.... 4 Years ago  
I don't think all y'all understand the brevity of consumer reports reviewing scoots. They are just wholly not equipped for the task. Are we not riding food PR ocessors? They are clueless,unless they consult with the likes of me. Next thing they will say , mpg needs to be better,and PD doesn't enforce muffler noise,etc. But I will tell u ,after owning both Honda and yammy stuff, where stainless is needed , yam uses it,Honda does not,too Cheap ,and Hondas are plastic queens, I am hereby coining that phrase.

Re:Yamaha reigns supreme.... 4 Years ago  
I love the massive amounts of power the my friends honda vtx1800 makes. Super fun bike for blasting around town. Anything more than 50 miles is about the most uncomfortable thing in the world though. And trying to do any work on it is an exercise in busted knuckle futility. Took 4 hours to put on a new kuryakyn air filter setup and then 7 hours to put on some freedom performance sharp radius pipes. Plus you have all that liquid cooling nonsense to do maintenance on. I wish my Roadie put out as much power as that 1800 does, but I wouldn't sacrifice all my comfort and easy of working on it to get that power.

Michigan State Police went the wrong direction in their latest purchase.

A state police analysis also said a Harley is a "capable vehicle for parade and ceremonial use."
