I have to disagree with this post ! Not Honda vs everything else but the statement that this thread was not designed to create controversy !

C'mon guys the OP was commenting on a human condition and he hit it out of the park. Congrats fella10, you've got 4 pages that confirm your thought. So can we move on to Trimetric vs. Victor vs voltage meter or Sunseeker vs. Forester vs Minnie Winnie or Patriots vs anybody

I haven't done the research, but it would be hard for me to believe that they are the "best seller".

I own a honda 3000. I love it. I would never have bought it for full price. I bought mine brand new for the same price as allot of construction generators. I love it, but wouldn't pay full price for it with the competitors that are out there.

I had a champion 3k (not an inverter). I loved it too. Apparently someone else did as they swiped it from the tongue of my race car trailer. It started on the first pull. Was reasonably quite for the $199 I paid. Powered what I needed to power, and parts were readily available when I did need one.

Honda and Yamaha are great. But this Honda owner would never pay what they are asking for one.

Oh yeah. No Levi's for me. They are too hard to find in new condition. I can only ever find them with holes in them or in the boy band editions. I'm down with the Brett Favre Walmart wranglers when I wear jeans.

Any inverter generator with a Robin/Subaru engine is the best bet. Take it from the Amish.

Honda owner here.... But if I am camping somewhere that I need a generator then honestly I don't care about the noise level. If you are my neighbor with a loud generator, I'll offer for you to plug into mine or I'll deal with it. Setting db limits on generators is like setting age restrictions on RVs. I'll have none of that, as we are all there for the same reason... To drink beer and have fun. Right?

Seems to me the topic was Honda Generators, not bikes. We are a family with great history and success with Honda products, including camping generators, motorcycles, and about 15 cars. There isn't a Harley-Davidson Motorcycle made today that can out perform a 600cc Honda road bike. That said, it depends on what values you attach to the purchases you decide to make. Honda generators are expensive, but they are quiet and durable. Ours has been with us for more than fifteen years, with no need for an engine rebuild. I may replace it some day when my wife and I decide that we really need air conditioning when dry camping.

Some friends of mine own Honda generators. They work well and are quiet.the main reason I bought a champion was talking to tech support before purchase.that is what sold me. Jay
