Back to the land of the rising sun

I agree in principle with you, though not enough to scrap the car. I had my service manager check my car for malfunctions when I first got it because the climate control is such a joke. Nope. He...

I don't think so on the oil but two strokes have their own peculiar issues, like cheap-@ss reed valves and odd fuel pumps. Find an owners group for your bike model.

Amen. I'm still sore at Chevy (two local dealers) about my warranty experiences. That is probably the biggest thing holding me back from buying another vette. Maybe I've been lucky but I'm happy...
