BK. Sorry fella but little Japanese bikes are just that. Little Japanese bikes.
They have no soul, can't have realistic nick names like Goose, Katy, Bemmer.
They are not built deep in the magic forests of Germany by Teutonic elves, or in the Vineyards of Italy by 8th generation tractor builders nor are they assembled in that 18th century fairy land Austria by East Asian Indians.
The worst part of having a little Japanese bike is they run, always run, continue to run. Hardly break down, need very little care and look like little Japanese bikes no matter how many farkels you hang on it.
Face it BK, you own the Timex of motorcycles. No chick magnet, no cool nick names, no horror stories of frames exploding, engines missing parts from the factory. Nothing that gives certain bikes a soul. Jeez man, even a HD has a soul and is the easiest bike to pan. If you want into the 'rag your buddy' threads get one of the aforementioned bikes, then you can play.
Just don't be mean to folks like that Bo character.
