    Oh, hey look, a mechanic that charges $120/hr and gives a $1 crush washer for "free" - he must not be cheap...

    I'll never go back to a rice burner after owning European and American bikes. They just don't inspire, and leave me wanting "more'...the type of more they could never deliver.

    They're just plain....borrrrring!!!! Give me a pasta burner!!!
    Tell me again what the sales of the big 4 Japanese brands are compared to everyone else????

    I'll stick with rice burners. ...and do my own maintenance.

    Though a few of the others do look nice, but not nice enough to put up with their maintenance headaches.

    Or the lack of parts, dealer network, and spotty reliability record.

    If you want it cheaper and more dependable than Italian ~ that's not 'jap bashing' ~ oh I see the thread someone else was jap bashing ~ every time I bought Italian I was going to buy Japanese just prior
    Something changed my mind, the look exclusivity, the sound whatever doesn't really matter buy the bike you want the one you like but because you're going to have to have it repaired someday that's a fact of life and you want good work done by a good mechanic regardless of what they charge ~
    The magnet was broken at the last place that he had an oil change done don't know more details than that but anybody who wouldn't replace that in their bike is doing a disservice
    Never said Carmine was cheap $120/hr and a free crush washer isn't the point, the point is I wasn't going to change it he reminded me I should
    That, I'm sorry is priceless yeah many posts slamming Carmine but you're doing it based on A guy that sounds like he abuses his equipment and then wants somebody to fix his problem
    Overbooking well that's an interesting thing but you should always expect that your bikes going to be in for more than a day and maybe even longer
    Don't trust me because I've only posted once… Whatever
    Overly positive, absolutely
    That's the way I choose to live my life and when I've got the bike redlining at 17,000 RPM and almost hitting 200 miles an hour I want to know the mechanic torqued the ****ing bolt
