Don't mistake, and lets call it as is, I like to ride BMW's, but they require a hell of a maintenance and a budget. Maybe it is because I ride them hard (>30,000 miles/year), and I take the funduro through very challenging dirt roads and trails... for sure I don't baby them!

I have a couple of riding buddies with japanesse bikes, that the only thing thy do is fill-up with gas and change the oil every 3-4k miles. That's not my case...!


I've had the Funduro, a 97 it never needed anything... oil and tires.

I have a 01 650gs, it hasn't needed much oil, tires and chain/sprockets.

Yes the R bikes are much eaiser to work on.

equipment of any kind requires maintenace. Your buddies on their Jap equipment just ain't telling the full tale, and none of em will own their bike over 100K/or keep em 20+ years
