So as I am walking around my yard doing that mind numbing task called "cutting grass" I notice my Honda water pump sitting by the lake. Then as I push my Honda lawn mower passed the garage I notice my Wing sitting next to my Ridgeline. So I think to myself why do I own so many Hondas and do other people owm as many as well. (Opps I forgot I have 13HP Honda on a Go Devil that we use duck hunting but it isn't in my yard right now). I know that the small engines have always been easier to start and more reliable than any of the others I have had over the years. So my question is how many different Honda machines do you own and why?

1967 Bridgestone 175 Dual Twin
1970 Suzuki GT500 Titan
1976 Suzuki GS750
1974 Honda XL250
1981 Yamaha XS400
1981 Suzuki GS1100E
1977 Yamaha DT250
1986 Suzuki RG500 Gamma (retired it to Florda)
2008 Honda GL1800
2012 BMW R1200RT

GL1200A, GL1500, CB1000F, TroyBilt (Honda) log splitter, TroyBilt (Honda) pressure washer. . . . . . . . That is all.

6'-2", 210, old Geezer Glide and a big dumb grin.

Goldwings. . . if you're gonna have something between your legs, it might as well be enormous and smooth.

Guess my extent of Honda Products is limited to just two Honda Gold Wings....But my son in Conroe needed a mower, and I gave him my 6 year old Briggs and Stratton powered mower....It quit???....His neighbor is letting him use his 8?? year old Honda mower, cutting deck has a few rust holes in it, the discharge chute was missing, but it cranks and runs like a new one..That sucker will throw a pop can out at you in a heart beat...I know I had to duck one.........

I have never had any problems with any Honda product we owned in the chemical plants where I worked on the equipment, we did however have Briggs, Kohler, and Wisconsin engines that were always in the shop for repairs...Honda products were much more expensive, but well worth it...The company, at my request bought Honda products to replace some of our two year old totally wore out equipment.....Our "down time" on mowers, pumps etc was cut drastically....Within one year they paid for them selves.....
