so what was wrong with the Jap cruiser Chris/ I have been thinking about buying a Harley but everyone tells me they are prone to rust even in a dry garage, I am also looking at the Triumph America as an alternative

downstairs from us is the HD showroom, I commented on the inside of an exhaust being rusty (new bike) colleagues just said they're all like that!!!

Thanks God BMW use stainless

i know some people keep them in dehumidifiers within their garage. Given the cost of a HD this does seem a bit ridiculous

They're fun to ride, but no better dynamically than a 60s brit bike (heavier though).
