Default What kind of car lives with your HD?

My first bike (which I still have) was a '92 Honda 600cc sportbike. Over the years I've heard snide comments about it being a jap bike or why don't I get a real bike. Well, I finally got a "real bike". I like it a lot... it's not fast and it doesn't stop worth a damn but I like it. I've also worked on it a helluva lot more in 2yrs than I did on that sportbike in 18yrs. After being looked down on by my fellow HD guys when I'm on the Honda, I got to wondering. What kind of car do all those badass, hardcore, I bleed red, white, and blue, jap bikes suck and so do you for riding one guys drive? My guess is a lot of them peel off their black leather costumes and hop in the camry, or tacoma and head to work. I'm curious to know what you folks out there are driving.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.

2000 GMC Jimmy Diamond Edition, wife has a 2007 Jetta, son has a 2001 Cavalier.
Regular oil changes and maintenance, and a weed sprayer full of oil every winter to soak the under carriage and inside the panels to keep them like new.
And, will never buy a Japanese car after a bad experience with a new Honda, the dealer and Honda Canada.
