They aren't saying the Honda owners gen. choice is bad, like some Honda owners say about their gen. choice, they're just saying that they're happy and satisfied with their gen. choice and why should that bother you or anyone else?
Makes about as much sense as either of your posts. I've read lots of posts where other brand owners condemn Honda owners for being extravagant spenders. Any time you stereotype anybody you are going to cause push back which I believe was your original intent.

Oh, and where I'm from (farm/ranch) everybody wears wranglers. Only city folks wore Levi's......😁

When I bought my Honda 2000 I was driving a 2001 Ford F1 Bucket 'O Rust so I was clearly not out to impress anyone with my material goods. I took the recommendations of fellow campers and personal impressions of the noise levels of various brands. There were not the available choices you see today. If someone spots my Honda and thinks I'm putting on airs - they are the ones with a problem, not me.

I bought the Champions based on price. I needed a generator that runs and produce electricity. Didn't matter to me if it is red, blue, yellow, orange, purple, polka dot. Champions have great reviews at a reasonable price.

I looked at other brands, but I was able to buy Champion at Lowe's for a discounted price....SOLD

If someone looks down at me because of the brand of genny I have, than they can look all they want because I don't want to TALK to them. They can keep walking!!!

I bought a 2010 HD Road King in August, 2009. Put 93,000 miles on this big dog in approximately four years.
No bar hopping for me. Strictly commuter one hundred miles a day, rain, shine, thunder or storm.
Splittin' lanes at 80 from Fontana, in Berdoo to the Los Angeles basin where I would bring it down to 75 all the way to L.A.
Can't say nothing bad about Asian bikes.
But after riding my Harley's for 140,000 miles in the recent past, I would never ever buy or ride anything else.
Just one note:
Harley Davidson scooters are routinely rebuilt and restored by innumerable bike shops.
When or where do you see Asian bike engines rebuilt and restored?
Rarely.
Whereas the HD rebuild and restoration market/industry is abundant.
Maybe the HD rebuild and restoration market/industry is abundant because so many of them need rebuilt where as the Asian bikes don't. A Honda Gold Wing will far outlast a HD Electraglide. Actually there are many shops restoring Asian bikes if you look. Japanese bikes are now becoming very collectible......something I didn't think I would ever see.

It's the Honda owners who feel their sense of superiority is being challenged by anyone who has the audacity to even suggest that there might be another choice of generator much less, dare I SAY, a BETTER choice than a Honda.
You Honda owners enjoy your genny, and the rest of us will enjoy ours and have a bunch of cash left over to buy some beer.

Lots of beer and maybe a couple more solar panels so we can really enjoy our beer in peace.

Not sure that the fact they are now considered a collectable means very much. Some people collect spoons! LOL

Good one. Hope you all get together and enjoy sharing a couple of beers, whether you're wearing Lee jeans, powering up with a Yamaha or sitting astride a Kawasaki.

Yea, I thought it was pretty simple....but then again...
FWIW I dont look down on or care what anyone owns....whether a generator or truck or camper or Beer. To each their own.
But at this time Honda has pretty much set the bar and it appears some brands have met those standards. But even though Honda's are the most expensive everyone still compares to Honda.
