Japanese motorcycles are built out of scrap, engineered to fail.

Leave the harley out in the weather for 5 seasons, all the cables and mechanicals work without issue. No garage queens.

Leave a jap bike out in the weather one season, both cables and every piece of steel are rusted. Serious junk metal, coatings are crap, powder coatings cracking, even the seat is UV toasted. The plastics are cheap and brittle one year after new.


Last POS jap bike I will ever waste my money on, the dirt bike has been decent at least. I expect it to require maintenance after thrashing it to hell and putting it up wet and muddy.
