Why do you mention this? has somebody used the term here?I would like to think that the use of the term "Jap Bikes" by members of this forum is not intended as a racial slur. From my interaction with forum members I can't imagine that anyone would be using this description in that manner.
It should be made clear though that many find the term to be offensive and racist.
It originated during the 2nd World War as a derogatory term.
"Japanese bike" would be much more universally accepted.
