When I see all the problems with Honda's expensive, flagship Goldwing (i.e., frames cracking, ghost shifting and broken trannys, switch problems, final drive problems, difficulty of replacing the air filter, etc.) I am somewhat less inclined the worship at the alter of Japanese reliability, especially when the BMW's and two Harleys we've had in the family have been or were virtually problem-free. That said, Honda has produced some fun rides that the kids have stored away for posterity (and to ride), such as the Dream, CBX and Rune. In days gone by, we certainly enjoyed the likes of the CB fours over everything else. Today, we're not quite so enthralled with Japan's stuff, although I do have an occasional pang for the FJR. YMMV.
