The proof, as they say, is in the putting. As a retired truck driver, I've been up and down lots of highways in lots of different places in the country; From the Southwest, to the Northeast. And I can truthfully say, I've seen more Harley/Davidsons in the backs of trailers than any other brand.
I've known many Harley owners in the past 50 years, and they seem to spend the majority of their time fixing or replacing something. On the other hand, I've also known many Honda owners, and they park the bikes in the winter, and ride them in the summer.
So, from many years of observation, I'll stick with Honda. My '95 Aspencade has 86,000 miles on it, and my VTX 1800 has over 50,000 on it. Both run like tops with just basic maintenance, and a few new tires every once in a while.
Smoke 'em if you got 'em!
