Darned Yamaha!

I really like my V-Max, but darn it! You'd think it would at least *try* to stay together a little bit...

The front end wasn't quite right this weekend when I took it out. Yesterday I found that the steering stem that was supposed to have 80 foot/pounds of torque probably had about 8. Sheesh. I wonder what's next. It's a surprise bike!

"Its a Yamaha! The whole bike needs replaced!"

I don't get it,I've owned all makes-yamaha,suzuki,kawasaki,and even honda(just long enough to fix it and sell it)never H.D. Dukati or aprilia around here are non existent................
Except for being the hardest to work on of the bunch-yamaha is a innovator
and their bikes have a certain refinement that i find appealing.Whenever i mention yamaha around people i know they give you that wrinkled nose look...
In my opinion for a cruiser you can't beat a vmax...only people that have gave them a try will agree though,yamaha has gotten a bad rap in the past and its still with 'em because of peoples ignorance..(i mean that in a nice way)...Have you hugged your yama today.

It was a joke man!
I have had all make including HD (no Aprilia or BMW) and love them all.
Not many cruiser but I love the Warrior.
I just always end up back at the Suzuki dealer.
