    Great thread, and good reading! Asian bikes are trying to be something else, in the designer's mind, perfecting it. Italian bikes (or American for that matter...) are the originals. It is impossible to separate polity from machine.

    I love mine. I have been riding for 42 years, had about 20 bikes. My main bike is a C14, great sport tourer I have put 82k on. But if the weather and what I have to carry allows it, it's the Aprilia every time. Ride one, you'l hear it and feel it and you'll then understand.

    I came so close to buying a Connie, ended up with a Honda ST1300 for touring that is as capable as it is boring lol.
