Yeah, I am aware of the history, but also aware that the internet has impacted many of the companies I have to deal with in very negative ways. Even a broken clock is right twice a day (or something like that) right.. right?

alpetel1965 @mkurup , I am with you 100%. Both Honda and Yamaha are incredibly reliable. I never had any issues, not even a switch or anything minor. Gas and oil change...period!!!!. And to work on them it is like a toy land. Having said that, my GA really spoiled me so bad that any new bike that comes out to the market has not ignited me so far. Yes, she will cost me in the next few years, I know, but it is ok. No bike out there like my black beauty. I had a guy with a new GW next to me getting gas, he looks at her and says, I think I did something wrong....mmmmmmm !!!! I said, as long as you did not steal or kill anyone, you are my brother. I replied, you can always trade in, no biggy. He was like.....mmmmmmm. Happy riding.....!!!!

He must not have been here to have undergone the endless stupidity that we did. He's the lucky one
I didn't read the article, back then or now because it's just dumb for me to even care.
Without reading, I'd have to say that our bikes seem to be less failure prone if you gauge it in failures per mile but might be higher on the overall failures. BMW riders tend to put many more miles on their bikes than other bike owners.

But... when you account for the numerous reports of CR manipulating data, IMO it taints the entire organization and relegates anything they publish to being nothing more than mere entertainment.

It's a real shame. CR had tremendous potential to be the definitive guide for just about everything we buy.
I agree, CR has lost a lot of credibility over the years in my opinion, its a shame.

lieu910 I have a problem with these comparisons. They need to show the breakdown of the data for it to be meaningful.

The other problem I have is that If you look at the features across the product line ups, it immediately becomes apparent that the BMW products have more features than the product line up in the other companies.

Sorry, but without specific data to look at it, it's just fodder.
