I've owned BMW's in the past and they have their niche market. I wouldn't say it was the best motorcycle I've owned nor the worse. However, with the advent of Germany no longer allying with us in the U.N. I will no longer be considering a BMW so it doesn't matter what financing they have or how well they're bikes might be made...they are no longer a choice for me. Nor will I purchase another German or Chrylser car.
