    Fred:

    1) Yes we are bias to Buell. See: website address
    B) I think I'm safe in saying Cooter doesn't hate BMW, but was pointing out a notoriously complicated (or advanced, if that's less of a trigger for you) brand of bikes that would be more difficult to fix with a hammer than a Buell. We could all argue opposing sides with anecdotal evidence, but I think it's safe to say most of us would be less capable of fixing a BMW without a shop.
    4) I've been trolled, have a nice day!

    True, alot of electronics on modern bikes make them hard to fix without access to specific software etc. In one aspect is it good with safety systems like abs, anti spinn etc. But i think most nations these days have laws making these systems more or less standard. Maybe it was better in the old days in some aspects.

    I know, right? The douchiness in this place just went down by about 500 points. That guy has to have the longest arm ever from patting himself on the back so much.

    To be honest, it is very easy to get misunderstood when writing. Especially on forums. The reaction of the reader is a matter of how the text get interpretered. I sometimes react to a text in a bad way based on how i choose to interpreter a text, often overreacting. In my case here was it just a personal opinion that we must not thrash other brands even if being brand loyal. Ok, maybe i wrote it in a bad way, that can be said.
