YOu re not a shitty owner, you're just experiencing that "one goddam thing after another" syndrome of airhead ownership that really is just your insecure bike's way of saying "do you REALLY love me? If not, its ok I'll just sit here and fall apart" etc. Love affairs are never easy. I'm pretty sure my bike loves me but sometimes i think its just for my money.

"shitty airhead owner"

maybe she means the airhead is shitty, not that the owner is shitty.

but that cant be, as we all know those BMW's are the bestest bikes ever.

no, they are, really.

I read it on the internet.
