    The only bike I've ever had breakdown was a Suzuki.

    RG250, it was probably 15 years old at the time and unloved by a previous owner, I bought it for 150... I seized it solid at 90mph in the fast lane of the M18.

    Currently have a Guzzi, 2 KTM's, a Ducati, an Aprilia, a Cagiva, a Monet Goyon and a Royal Enfield.

    Nope, not one Japanese bike owned now, but I have had dozens over the years. My current position isnt a conscious one, it's just how things have worked out.
