hmmm.... as a 1994 RX7 and 2000 S4 owner, I'll suggest that the rotary is 
pleanty reliable.  IMHO most of the problems one hears about with the 
rotary are due to improper modifications.   

I have done two - 2 week cross country drives across the US in that 
car, driving  about 1000 miles per day  (~15K per trip).  I'd 
trust that car to get me just about anywhere (blizzard exclusion applies).

I have about 100k on it now. Never an engine problem, and the smoothness 
of the engine is incredible.  At the time I purchased it, it was the 
closest thing to a bike I could find.  These days, perhaps that new lotus 
would be a favorable choice...
