The WWII connection to these Jap motorcycles is the only big downer in the hobby , its real and some folks do bring up the history every so often :?

I have to give Honda credit for starting out directly in the motorcycle field, rather than it being an afterthought.

I think Honda actually started out making piston rings. And of course Kawasaki was a ship builder first and bought the aircraft company.

Germany was our enemy too. BMW and Mercedes built machinery for the German war effort.

Krups too. So did all of our factories. The BMW radial in WW2 had a life expectancy of 5 hours between overhaul or change. Glad their bikes are better now.

Italy was an enemy also until they switched sides. That doesn't leave many bikes to choose from.
