harley davidson owners love their rides!
Consumer reports just finished their annual survey of motorcycle owners and determined which motorcycles were the most reliable. And which had the highest satisfaction. They surveyed over 4000 new motorcycles owners on many different aspects of motorcycle ownership. They then compiled the data to show which models were the best and which models were loved the best. And not to surprising harley davidson came out on top on the most happy with their purchase. But we already know that. Who doesnt love thier fat boy or road glide. Harley knows how to make a great motorcycle.
harley davidson wannabe
That is why there is so many harley davidson wanna be motorcycles out there. Just look at this honda shadow motorcycle in the picture above. Tell me that isn’t a complete rip off of a harley. The only other motorcycle with the same kind of satisfaction was BMW. We all can agree those Germans can put a motorcycle together. Another thing these two motorcycle manufactures share. besides the people who love their bikes. Is they are both not rated tops in reliability or in maintenance costs. Both have mediocre scores when it comes to reliability and unscheduled maintenance. (otherwise know as breakdowns). but I think that is all part of why we love our harley davidson and BMW. Riding them or fixing them, you cant beat either ride.
The top honors for the most reliable and boring motorcycle is of course the Japanese motorcycles. They are the most well built, top of the line engineered motorcycles on the planet. But being the best at that isn’t everything riding a motorcycle is all about. Motorcycle are a lot more than how well they are built. We love our rides in spite of the flaws they have. Sometimes the time spent in the garage fixing that coil that went out for the 3rd time is the best time we get to spend with our machine. You don’t stop loving your girl just because she has a few flaws. You love her even more.
