I have just done spain and portugal on my sport (1850 miles in 5 days) and not one problem, started on the button evert time the bike is 5 months old and now has 4400miles on the meter. my first bit of trouble was a couple of days ago when a stick coil failed but reddog are dealing with this issue as we speak
my 05 TNT has nearly 15000miles on the meter and apart from early hot start issues has also been reliable (at least 6000 of the miles were done in Europe)
It looks as if the reliability issue has been put to bed on the Nelli, I know that a few will still have issues but you can say that of all motorcycles.
As I have stated before, it's not the problem that's the problem, it's how you are treated by your dealer. This appears to have been sorted out as well with the likes of KJM, Bennetts and Red Dog all doing their hardest to sort any problems out.
