We must be doing something wrong, having had four, going on 5 (with one on order) BMWs in the family with nary a problem. Maybe we're just not riding them correctly. Then, I remembered there were two Harley's, one of which is still with us, that had no problems. Since none of these were garage queens, perhaps we are an outlier. For those of you who're accustomed to having transmission issues, get yourself one of those ghost-shifting Goldwings and be in the in-crowd.
