Hell I've got an Italian bike with 100K+ on it so WTF do I know?
One of my Harleys has 3 times that on it.
I'd like to see the specifics of the report, such as average age, average mileage, criteria that they used to constitute a "major" repair, etc.
And I agree with you. Around these parts Harleys get the nuts ridden off of them. Most Asian bikes I see haven't accumulated many miles.
