That's a stat I like.
Everyone has a reason to like what they like. For me I enjoy wrenching, tricking out, and riding. Something that needs a little more maintenance isn't necessarily a bad thing, lets me get more familiar with the beast beneath the clothing, so to speak.
I think the big takeaway, from what I've seen up here, is statistics be damned, we'll ride no matter what! With a smile on our face no less!
