I agree, the complaints far outweigh the compliments because the happy people are riding, not reading. The number of dealerships as well as maintenance-prepared folks are limited compared to car repair shops, so it does take a little longer to get things fixed if they do go wrong. However, oil changes can be done at home if you're mechanically-minded or can read the manual that comes with the bike. I've got zero mechanical capability, but the instructions are very clear on that.
