No way would I own a BMW. Aside from the image problem (for me) they are always breaking down, and parts and service costs way more than a Japanese bike. I wouldn't have a problem with a vintage BMW, but the newer ones seem to only be ridden by snobs wearing Aerostitch Roadcrafter suits. Another forum I belong to, advrider.com, thinks they are the greatest bike ever made, while at the same time constantly complaining about all the problems they have with them. They seem to be more of a status symbol than anything else. To me anyway.
