Do they really get 2 years standard Honda warranty? if so why dont we get it here in the States?............ if they realy do and I hope some one besides Diel11 will reply. and answer this.. its my guess the Goverment stepped in and said one year is ridiculas these days, you shouldnt have to pay for somthing they should give you with your purchase. one year think about that some of these bikes cost more than a gas saving sub compact that gets 3 to 5 year warranty........ Honda is the biggest and look at the warranty on there cars.
just like being closed on Monday that is old school....we should get more and we wont get it till we demand change in this industry...... to tell us a 204 oil filter is 15.00 bucks when you could get a chevy truck fiter for 5.00 and its 3 times more mass........... same with tires a standard truck tire is about 175.00 you could get 3 motor cycle tires out of that but they charge you 200.00 for that tire. what about oil.... synth. for my truck 4.50 qt. synth. for my bike 10.00........... same type of proccess to make both... there overcharging now when prices should be lower, oil the source of tires and motor oil is half from last year yet they have gone up on oil and tires... this " Monoply" they seem to have as all bike retail for the same all oil, all tires..... this will not change till we demand them too. a qt. of oil should be no more than 5.00 PERIOD.

When are you startin' your motorcycle tire, oil, and filter company? :laugh: While not the whole answer, you have to consider economies of scale. A hell of a lot more car/truck tires, filters, and quarts of oil are manufactured and sold.

Ok I see what your saying but way back in the 70s everyone said the same thing about telephones when ma bell had a monopoly and that it would never change............ well enough people got angry .......they got sued and were forced to break up and allow competition in the industry........if that hadnt happened.......my friends we would be paying 1.00 flat rate per minute for each call and no free long distance plans.....your average phone bill would probably be 300.00 a month.....do you want to pay 20.00 a quart in a few years from now........also the fact that somthig cost more in another place in the world is unrelated to the term of the warranty.....if that were the case a U.K. fireblade would only cost 400.00 more than the same bike in U.S. the longer warranty is probably the result of pressure from induviduales and goverment......one more thing everyone complaines about there goverments but across the pond you get more social invovlment and protection from your goverements... here they tried to say global warmming didnt exist for the last 8 years.

Yeah it's called socialism. I'll take a pass on that. If you think so highly of places other than the U.S., MOVE. NOW.

an by the way, Scotland isny a socialist country. check yer facts before ye let loose.

Back in the days on the old .net a thread would be locked as quick as hell for even mentioning politics unless the thread was in the CS section. WTF has happened to this site? I'd bet "admin" could possibly answer that question. The fuckin' rules are SLACK here now, no wonder everybody left.

(sorry to thread jack, not really, but this thread did not have to be started, it could have been addressed in the other thread the op started)

everyone here can see what you are
Everyone here can see what you are ... :sad010: :cussing: :sad010: :cussing: :sad010:

and I am trying to do somthing.
Pissing and moaning ... that's about it. All complain-on-the-interwebs and no action. :gay:

I am betting that you have an inferiority complex. People who drop the racial/political affiliation card often do. By the way, I am white and I am a registered independent and you can :gfy: with your political sidetracking.

Typical Republican BS. Always trying to kick people out of the country if they don't agree with them.
STFU and GTFO with your politics.
