Having both is a great thing.

I miss my old GS, but enjoy the thrill of riding my GT. Someday I hope to get another GS... in addition to the GT of course.

Just to reinforce what I have been saying, that is a nice looking bike. I love the 2 into 1 pipe. Very nice. The seat looks a little difficult to tolerate for long, but that's a matter of preference.

OK so there's the olive branch. My bad for missing it.

Fine.

Even so, I think your "HD Basher" radar may be set a bit too high.

Pricing on the C3

Polo lists the price of the C3 as 479 Euro including VAT which is 19%. If they sell it to the U.S., they should remove the VAT which means the price would be 479 / 1.19 = 403 Euro. That in dollars is...
