i understand that.

except i happen to have a sporty 1200 roadster, and have no desire to own any of the road couches of any manufacture. problem with that is, my bike is extremely well made and fit and finish is still excellent, and thats on my low end bike, that is now 7yrs old and has 22k rough miles. before i bought my roadster i tested a whole bunch of bikes, most were technically superior, except the 1200r just 'felt' like a motorcycle.

might as well call the bonneville, the thruxton, the w650 and now 800, the duc monster...i could go on, low end bikes.
