    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.
