when the rubber hits the road, it's the quality of the experience that matters, not what the fenders are made of. Obviously many Americans prefer the Harley experience to the Ducati experience. Carbon fiber and desmo valves really don't mean much when the spped limit is 55mph, however comfy ergos and a nice sound makes for a sweet ride.
