honda's are more reliable through and through, if it's a bike for a friend to ride? get the honda.

I've heard bad things about outlaws too. I went riding with a guy who had one in pretty bad conditions last weekend and he did fine the whole way, except at the end somehow his chain was extremely loose (over 1.5 inches of play) which I don't know if that was his fault or what happened. Besides that the bike held up good and we were beating the crap out of it

Considering this is a Honda forum its no surprise you will get all Honda supporters, and I'm no different
